LOWER SACKVILLE: A two-goal lead is the worst lead in hockey–and the Lockview Dragons girls hockey team found that out on Nov. 8 against the Citadel Phoenix.

Lockview opened the game’s scoring with two quick goals, before a rough second period resulted in a 3-2 lead for the Phoenix.

The Dragons evened the game up at 3-3 before the middle stanza ended, and neither team would be able to find the back of the net and had to settle for the tie game result.

Lockview had a few opportunities to get the go-ahead tally, but to no avail as the goaltender for the Phoenix came up strong.

Not to be out done, Lockview’s Savannah Wheatley was solid in between the pipes for her Dragons to keep the game even.

Leading the Dragons offence was Brooke Rose with a pair of goals, while Morgan MacKenzie had the other tally.

Olivia Day and Emma Scott chipped in with helpers.
