Their opponents got on the scoreboard early in the game but Jillian Rops didnít let them have the lead long.  She took the puck in wide and a beautiful long shot hit the top corner.   

Sandwich battled a somewhat tired Lancer team in the second period and beat Amelia Maniuk two more times to end the 2nd 3-1. 

Coach Sparks must have lit a fire under the girls between periods as they came out flying in the third period.  Karly Dobbin scored in the first minute on a pass from her sister Kelsey.  The Lancers kept the pressure up and were rewarded shortly after on a beautiful goal by Jessica Weed.  The game stayed tied 3-3 with the Lancers creating some great scoring chances but couldnít beat the Sandwich goal tending.  Late in the third period Sandwich playing with a very shortened bench, got a goal to take a 4-3 lead.   

The score remained to give the Sandwich team the SWOSSA championship and a spot at the OFSAA Championships.  Windsorís coach was very impressed with the strength and depth of the Lancer girls saying they were definitely the better team.  This loss was the girls first league loss of the season.  The girls ended a wonderful successful season remaining undefeated in the North Lambton tournament, the Listowel tournament, and the LSSAA league championship.   Graduating Lancers Kelsey Dobbin and Andie Hunter will be missed next year. 

The girls are coached by Roger Sparks, Sara Krawetz, Ted Sylvester and Kendra Broad.
