BEAVER BANK: A pair of goaltenders from Fall River and Beaver Bank combined to stop 27 of 28 shots they faced in helping their ACTION Benefits Penguins kickoff the new MMFHL season with a weekend sweep in Saint John.

Kaitlyn Langille turned away all 14 shots she faced in an opening night shutout win, while Cicely Harnum stopped 13 of 14 in a second victory giving up one goal as the Pens downed the Fundy Kraken at the QPlex in Saint John, N.B.

Langille’s save helped the Pens to a 4-0 win, while it was a 6-1 victory for Harnum and her teammates.

Jenna Greenwood, Ava Kennedy, Molly Amirault, and Christina Perrin all turned the red light on for the Penguins.

Megan Gallahue had the lone helper in the game.

The team has a distinct Lantz, Fall River, and Beaver Bank flavour with several players from those area on their roster.
