The Westman Wildcats hosted the St. Mary's Flames this afternoon in Hartney. The Flames were clearly the better team in the opening frame and scored the 1st period's only goal.

The Wildcats finally found their legs in the final frame and began to push back. Eventually, their hard work led to a powerplay and Ashton Bell was able to score off the rush with 12:31 remaining in the period to make the game 2-1. Haley Wickham and Mckenzie Meek each picked up assists on the play. That goal seemed to put the Flames on their heels a bit and the Wildcats really made a push . But is was a huge save by Jenna Marshall that kept the Wildcats alive and they responded with a couple really intense shifts and were once again rewarded with a powerplay. This time it was Tori Williams who buried a rebound to tie the game at 2-2 with 4:05 remaining in the 3rd. Josee Casavant and Aly O'Hara each picked up an assist on the play. The Wildcats outshot the Flames 10-2 in the period. The Flames took 3 of 4 penalties in the frame.
