BLUE WARRIOR

Today’s Blue Warrior goes again to Furies’ Captain, Natalie Spooner. Last night, Spooner scored one of the two Toronto goals, and would’ve made it a second, were it not for the no-goal ruling in the second period. And then today, Spooner scored two goals and would’ve made it a hattrick… But again, she was denied by a no-goal ruling.  

SHOUTOUT

Today’s Shoutout goes to the City of Barrie and Roger’s Hometown Hockey. Today’s game was a jam-packed, standing room only, event. And the City of Barrie stepped up and came in clutch.   

COMING UP NEXT
