Wildcats Win in OT to Advance to League Finals
Mar 10, 2017, 12:44 am

Josee Casavant scored on the powerplay with 4:10 remaining in the 1st overtime to defeat the Yellowhead Chiefs 2-1 to win the league semi-final series 3 games to 1.  Andrea Sanderson won the draw back to the point and Jessica Walker dragged the puck to the middle and passed it back down the half wall to Sanderson. Sanderson drove the lane and got the shot through to the net.  The Chiefs goalie, Miranda Cook, made the original save but the puck squeaked through and fell behind her.  Josee Casavant was in the right place to see the open puck behind Cook and she slid it into the open net to secure the series victory.

The Wildcats got off to a rough start in the opening period as they struggled to gain any momentum.  The tight checking Chiefs made it difficult at every turn and outshot the Wildcats 15-4.  Tatum Amy scored the opening goal at the 9:21 mark of the period to give the Chiefs a one goal lead.  The Wildcats began to build some momentum in the last 5 minutes of the period but were happy to get out of the period down only one goal.  Each team took 1 minor penalty.

The Wildcats came out a different team in the 2nd period and began to consistently get pucks deep and establish a strong forecheck.  The increased pace caused the Chiefs to take a couple of minor penalties.  The Wildcats capitalized on the first powerplay as Andrea Sanderson popped a rebound past Cook to tie the game.  The Wildcats continued to carry the play and ended up outshooting the Chiefs 11-7 in the frame.  The Chiefs took 2 of 3 minor penalties in the period.  

The Wildcats came out on a mission in the 3rd period, carrying the play to the Chiefs.  This resulted in numerous scoring chances but Cook was equal to the task and turned aside everything the Wildcats threw at them. The Wildcats thought they had the go ahead goal but the referee determined that he blew the whistle before the puck entered the net. The Wildcats goaltender, Jenna Marshall, stayed sharp and was called upon to make a big save with 17 seconds remaining in regulation.  The game was headed for overtime.  The Wildcats outshot the Chiefs 17-8 in the period and the Chiefs took 2 of 3 minor penalties.

In overtime, the Wildcats had to kill off an early penalty but then got a powerplay opportunity of their own and cue the heroics from Casavant.

Jenna Marshall was solid in net picking up the win and stopping 29 of 30 shots.  The Wildcats finished with 32 shots on net.

The Wildcats will now face off against the Pembina Valley Hawks.  Stay tuned for the announcement of when game 1 will be played in Hartney next week.
