Philadelphia Little Flyers Girls vs Lady Patriots
MAWHA Championship Game
A Tremendous Ending to the MAWHA Season for 12U PLF Girls
It does not matter how you get there as long as you get there…
The 12U Little Flyers Girls Team peaked at precisely the right moment this weekend to defeat their cross-town rivals the Lady Patriots for the MAWHA championship on Sunday Afternoon at Revolution Ice Gardens. Coming into the game, the 12U PLF Girls had lost 4 consecutive games against the Lady Patriots and although they had competed increasingly well through the season – the result had consistently been the same – until the Championship game on Sunday.
Starting the tournament with a loss to the Lady Patriots Friday night followed up by a win against a tough Lady Islanders Team on Saturday afternoon, the 12U PLF Girls earned a spot in the Championship Game for the MAWHA title on Sunday afternoon. Champions always rise to the occasion and the PLF Girls showed their Championship Spirit as they competed the Championship Game on Sunday Morning.
PLF Girls started the scoring in the first period with a blast coming off Caroline “the Cannon” Coen’s stick at 8:09 of the first period. Scoring first really turned the tables on the Lady Patriots who have consistently earned early leads themselves through the season. “Sniper” Sha netted the second of the game on a great play with 7:30 of the second period and that turned out to be all the girls would need to win the game. Defending the 2-0 lead was not an easy task as the Lady Patriots pushed back hard through the second and third periods. Selene “The Widowmaker” White eliminated all dreams of a championship for the Lady Patriots as she impersonated a brick wall on Sunday to ensure victory for the PLF Girls as they joined the 10U and 16U PLF Girls taking home MAWHA Championship banners back to Ice Works.
Congratulations for a well earned Championship!
