The LCCVI Lancers girl's hockey team claimed another championship for the Petrolia claiming their third LSSAA title  after defeating the St. Patrick Fighting Irish 4 - 2 in the Championship game held in Petrolia yesterday.

Led by solid goaltending the Lancers fell behind early but managed to battle back and eventually win the game.
"Both teams played very well," Lancers assistant coach Ted Sylvester said after the game.
"We are happy about the win."

Laura Lambert, Jill Vandenbergine, Kendra Broad and Karly Dobbin scored for the Lancers.
Mellisa Kelly and Kimber Williams scored for St. Pats.

"They are going to go to OFSAA," Irish head coach Frank Torti said of the Lancers.

"It was a hard fought game. We took a lot more penalties than we are used to. I think we got tired at the end and couldn't come back."

Petrolia will now play The Pines next week.

"I think that it is the system we have in Petrolia," Sylvester said of the fact that LCCVI teams seem to dominate in the LSSAA hockey rankings.

"The coaches are very good and the player are willing to learn." LCCVI isn't the only LSSAA team that still have hopes for OFSAA. 

ST. Clair will host a SWOSSA semi-final game next week against the Chatham-Kent representative.
