Calgary Fire White went back to winning ways in the Alberta Female Elite Bantam League on Sunday with two late goals.
After a goalless first period, the Sherwood Park visitors took the lead five minutes into the second with a goal by their captain, Jenna Goodwin who made a breakaway and beat Fire White’s goalie, Ali Kieren with a shot over her left shoulder. It looked like it could be enough for the win but with five minutes to go in the final period, Fire White equalized in a power play when Ella Kitchen got some space and hit above the Sherwood Park goalie, Asia Kachuk as she went down on the ice.
With 2”26” on the clock and another powerplay, Hannah Suto scored with a shot glove-side. There was intense pressure in the closing minute as Sherwood Park pulled their goalie but the Fire White defense held up to the storm to secure the team’s twelfth regular time win of the season.
Final score: Calgary Fire White 2-1 Sherwood Park
