Blades Sweep Toronto on Road

Bladies Sweep!

Every trip north of the border is a trial by fire. The bus rides are never ending, inevitably you pull two U turns in the team bus across four lanes of traffic and you realize later when you get your bank statement that you paid $10 American for your tall latte.

However, when you put all that on the back burner and show up to the rink ready to play, good things happen. The Bladies have completed our first weekend sweep of the year and it feels awesome!

There was so much to be proud of this weekend whether it was Thatchers hat trick on Saturday or Jen Lacasse’s stand up puck control today, it was an all around team effort. We had beautiful goals and we had ugly ones, long bomb passes and chips into space. Great teams know how to use it all when the game requires.

I am so proud of my teammates and pumped for the next time we get to wear the black and yellow together!
