T
he Sarnia Express Senior AA Women's Hockey team is a new travel team based out of Sarnia, playing in the Southwestern Ontario Women's Hockey League. The Express will play their home games out of Point Edward Arena and occasionally from the RBC Centre. The away games take place all across Southwestern Ontario in locations such as Windsor, Strathroy, London, Aylmer, Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo, Niagara Falls, and the Greater Toronto Area.

In their very first game together as a team, the Sarnia Express faced probably one of the leagues strongest opponents from Aylmer, Ontario. Sarnia unfortunately came up short in a great effort, losing 3-1. The lone goal for the Express came from the hardworking Tiffany Daley, she was assisted by Brandi Warner. It was a valiant effort it net by goaltender Kate Rawlings, keeping Sarnia in the game from start to finish.
 
The Express played their second season game at Home on Sunday Oct. 23rd, facing the Kitchener Rangers. Sarnia opened the scoring halfway through the first period on a shot from the point from Alicia MacDougall that was deflected nicely by Brandi Warner for her first goal of the season. Tiffany Daley also picked up an assist on the play.
 
Sarnia would score again early into the second period after some great pressure in front of the Rangers net by the Express. Lacey Cote picked up a rebound and top shelved the puck over the goalie. Assisting on the play were,  Jocelyn Steadman and Alicia MacDougall. Sarnia would score once more in the second on the power play. After some great puck cycling, Tiffany Daley would find the back of the net, bringing the Express up 3-0. Assists went to Alicia MacDougall and Denise Coubrough. The game would finish with the teams first win, and a well earned shutout by goalie Lisa Myers.
 
Sarnia is on the road next Sunday,  stopping in Waterloo for the teams first meeting, then heading out for a late afternoon game in London.
