Her teammate Marijka Yaschyshyn, the MCAC’s regular season MVP, was solid on defence rarely letting anything get past her. Her teamed with Lydia Balsillie, the Blazers goaltender, was a tandem Les Rouges had a tough time getting passed. Balsillie made a few incredible saves in the second half from corner and free kicks.

Daneige Edey, Les Rouges’ keep, also did a mighty job in her own net stretching out for some tough saves throughout the game. Stephanie Berube and Megan Burns were also very strong all weekend.
