WHKY | Voyageurs Ground Golden Hawks in Season Finale
On Sunday afternoon, the Voyageurs women's hockey team team ended their 2017/2018 season with a 4-2 win over the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks. 
 
The Vees opened the scoring at 11:02 by way of Myla McCormick on a play assisted by Natalie Lamarche and Brooklyn Davis
 
The Golden Hawks responded shortly after as Emily Woodhouse tied the contest at 13:12
 
The scoring resumed early in the second period as Marie-Pierre Pelissou scored just 44 seconds in. Megan Arnott and McCormick also assisted on the goal. 
 
Elissa Bertuzzi then increased the Vees lead to 3-1 at 1:13 on a play set up by Mariah Beckett
 
At 8:03 the Golden Hawks would claw back within a goal of the Vees as Jaden Head found the back of the net. 
 
Lamarche would restore the Vees two goal advantage at 15:40 before the teams took to their dressing rooms for the second intermission. 
 
There would be no scoring in the third period and the final buzzer would signal the end of the game as well as the season for the Voyageurs. The outcome of the season is not what the Vees were hoping for as they missed the playoffs. However, they will be motivated by the result will look to rebuild and regroup over the summer. 
 
The Voyageurs will say goodbye to their loyal veterans who are graduating this year and will not be returning next season. The door will now be open to the younger crop of Voyageurs to fill the void left by the returning players and will hit the ice in September poised to build off of this season.
