On Saturday, the team held the Southwest Wildcats to 13 shots in a 2-0 win. Leaside goals came from Sadie Lovering (game winning goal, assisted by Ava Myers) and Elizabeth Shapira (assisted by Riley Stansfield). Sara Da Silva earned her first shutout of the regular season.
Sunday’s back and forth game against Brampton Canadettes resulted in another 2-0 victory. Sarah-Lynne Gauthier turned away 27 shots for the shut-out. Sadie Lovering scored her second game winning goal of the weekend, assisted by Kaitlyn Towle and Siena Harris. Harris followed that up with an unassisted goal to make it 2-0.
