Capital City Lions vs Gen X Eagles
February 11, 2020 8:10
In our first matchup of the night we had the second place Capital City Lions looking to jump into a first place tie with Original Four, while Gen X Eagles were still looking for their first win. CCL was very happy to have their rugged veteran Steve Quach back in nets and he certainly didn't disappoint. On the other side we had Marty Leury who has been peppered throughout the season and that didn't change tonight. Right off the opening faceoff the ball ends up on the stick of GENX's Patty Dunnigan behind his own net and while looking for the breakout pass he puts it right off Brock Murray's foot and into the net. GENX had some newcomers to their team including the legendary, always-smiling Bruce Boivin and Michelle Heggison. Fast forward halfway through the first Nicky Soucy scores a beauty on Leury. Tons of back and forth action and both teams looked very solid on this night. CCL outshot GENX 31-18 in the first and both Quach and Leury each made some fantastic saves. The period ends with CCL holding a slim 2-0 margin.
A few minutes into the second period young gun Austin Perron finally gets on the board by coming from behind the net and absolute blasting it top shelf after receiving a great pass from the ever-improving and always-kind Faith Murray, who had another strong showing on this night. Four minutes later off a scramble in front of CCL's net, Elise Berthiaume takes a shot which makes its way through the traffic, off the post and in to make it 3-1 CCL. The next ten minutes saw a ton of chances for both teams, including a great penalty kill by CCL's Perron and Amanda Murray. With only two minutes on the clock Perron nets his second of the game top glove on Leury to make it 4-1. With only 38 seconds left, Dunnigan erases his earlier blooper with a nice goal down low to pull within 2. That was all she wrote as the game ends in a 4-2 CCL victory with the shots 45-36 in favour of the Lions.
