Calgary Fire White struck twice against Airdrie Lightning to win their Friday night game at Genesis Place Arena and retain their position at the top of the Southern Division of the Alberta Female Hockey League (Midget Elite).

Strike one came early in the first period, a point shot from Alexa Brown that was tipped in past Sarah Kerr in the Airdrie goal by Fire’s Player of the Game, Mila Preville.

Strike two came less than two minutes before the end of the second period, a shot through traffic by affiliate forward Hanna Perrier.

Final score: Airdrie Lightning 0-2 Calgary Fire White

Song of the match

A couple of songs get honourable mentions: Should I Stay or Should I Go? (The Clash), and Heroes by David Bowie. The prize though goes to a song from 1982 with a great guitar intro and that, according to urban legend, some Americans think it’s about a country, not an athletic pursuit: I Ran by Flock of Seagulls.

Up next: The Calgary Fire White team is on the bus north to Grande Prairie on Saturday to play Peace Country Storm on Sunday, December 1. Alas, this photographer is unable to travel with them but image service will resume on December 7, when Fire Red and Fire White meet once again.
