FALL RIVER: Two Fall River girls helped lead their Metro West Force (Blue) team to the Hockey Nova Scotia Female Peewee AA provincial crown.

Goalie Lucy Phillips turned away 31 of 33 shots and Leah Copeland helped keep the puck out of her own zone as Metro West Force downed Pictou 4-2. It was a rematch of last year’s five hour-plus marathon championship in which both teams were declared co-champions.

Phillips goes to Grade 7 at Georges P. Vanier Junior High, while Copeland is a Grade 6 student at Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary School.

Scoring for Metro West Force were: Taylor Jefferies; Jazlyn Wincey; Hayden Lilley, and Avery Walsh, but not in that order.

During the last minute of play, Pictou pressured with a six on three as two Metro players were in the penalty box, but Phillips and her teammates thwarted them.

Metro trailed 1-0 early on, like they did in the fourth round robin deciding game, but led 3-1 after two periods and held on for the victory.
