SHERWOOD PARK, AB, Tuesday, July 22, 2008 — The Ontario U-16 Girls won their opening match of the 2008 BMO National All-Star Championships today against Newfoundland & Labrador.
Christine Exeter found the back of the NL net first at 10:58 into the game.
She then followed with two more strikes at 19:55 and 29:04 in the second half for a hattrick.
Ontario seemed to lose focus shortly after their first goal, but the team was able to regain control of the game in the second half to seal the win.
The Newfoundland and Labrador squad played a spirited game but was unable to solve Ontario’s formidable defense lead by Olivia Mbala and Katherine Lawrence.
Nicole Mitchel provided dangerous offensive crosses and well-placed corners to keep Ontario on the attack.
Keeper Lauren Kadet earned the shut-out.
Ontario 3 v 0 Newfoundland & Labrador
