The two OGHA teams were meeting in the North Country Shoot-Out finals for the first time in the 2016-17 season. It was an eagerly anticipated match for the players, coaches and fans. The Lady 67's came out strong but the Ottawa Ice kept the game tied at 0-0 by the end of the first period. Early in the second the Ottawa Ice took a 1-0 lead, the Lady 67's battled back to tie it and finish the period even at 1-1. The Lady 67's tallied two goals in the third to finish the game with a 3-1 victory to win the North Country Shoot-Out. Over the five games of the tournament the Lady 67's scored 12 goals and held their opponents to just 3 goals.
Congrats to the team for winning the tournament by working together to provide great offence, excellent defence and outstanding goalkeeping.
