Ali Kieren got a shutout and Ryan Perrett picked up a pair as Calgary Fire White clinched a 3-0 win over their family rivals, Fire Red at Henry Viney Arena today. It was their ninth win of the season in the Alberta Female Bantam Elite Hockey League, further consolidating their lead in the table.
Fire White went into the break after 20 minutes with a single goal, Perrett’s first. Her blaster from the right faceoff circle gave the Red goalie Cienna Kinghorn no chance as it flew into the top left corner of the net.
No goals were scored in the second period, but the White’s built their presence on the ice, dominating play and repeatedly pinning the Red team back in their zone.
Perrett got her second goal of the game after seven minutes of the final period, taking a pass from Hannah Suto right in front of the net to beat Kinghorn again on her stick side. It turned into a three-goal game just over a minute later when Ashlynn Stitt scored from the right of the posts with traffic in front of the net.
Final score: Calgary Fire White 3-0 Calgary Fire Red
Up next: Fire White host Olds Grizzly’s at East Calgary Twin Arenas, Sunday, November 19 (10:00 am)
Song of the match
Hockey music fans across Canada were mourning the loss today of one of the founders of AC/DC. Sadly, Malcolm Young, the big, stay at home defender whose rhythm guitar riffs were a hallmark of the band passed away aged 64. In tribute, one of their many big hits, Dirty Deeds was played extensively during the final interval of the game. RIP Malcolm Young.
