Lacoka Bantam girls made sure last Thursday, March 19 on home ice in Lacombe that the fate of the league championship series with Stettler Bantam girls would not be the same as the provincial championship game played a week earlier and closed the best-of-three series in the second game by winning it 3-2 in the third overtime period, claiming the league title.

“It was a huge accomplishment to sweep the best-of-three series in two straight against the team that had just won the provincial banner days earlier, and also had a regular season record of 27-1,” said coach Mark Sieben.

The Lacoka girls came back from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 until the last minutes of the third period when Stettler girls equalized and the game went to a third overtime.

The winning goal for the Lacoka girls came just 30 seconds from the end of the third OT.
