What a season! The IHVWL Championship game was played at Oakleigh on Sunday, the Vultures and the Huskies were neck and neck for first place! All rivalry with the Huskies and the Vultures is friendly with both teams playing their best clean hockey, with lots of laughs along the way.
The game started with two quick and unanswered goals from the Vultures, the first (assisted by our game MVP Siobhan (44)) scored by our #1
team mate KP (3), who is always right there when you need someone to pass to and always quick with her deadly accurate shot! KP (3) set up the next goal too, with Aimee (7) putting on the finishing touches.
The goalies Abi (27) (who received the Vultures game puck) and Ruth (17) kept both team scoreless in the second, with tension rising and both teams fighting hard to keep up the momentum.
The last period was crazy, the key instruction the Vultures received from their coach was ‘no penalties’ and the Vultures managed to serve 3 in the third, lucky for them, the Huskies didn’t manage to convert their power plays into a goal.
With 31 seconds to go until the end, Simone (91) pushed her way through the Vultures defense, making a quick release pass to Melanie (47) Huskies leading goal scorer who shot one past Abi (27)! The last seconds of the game saw the Huskies throw everything they had at the Vultures, with some close calls, they held them off.
Vultures were named IHVWL 2019 Champions!! Vultures would like to thank our Coach Andrew for his support and guidance through the season, all of the women who signed up to IHVWL and made this competition the amazing experience it has been, everyone behind the scenes organizing the competition and every one who has come along to support us at our games. 🏒🥅🥇🏆
