Local girls are OWHA champs

Two Georgetown girls helped their respective Brampton Canadettes' AA teams capture Ontario Women's Hockey Association championships earlier this month in Mississauga and Brampton. Thirteen-year-old Sofia Troop scored twice for the bantam AA Canadettes in their 7-3 thrashing of Aurora in the final at Mississauga Iceland, capping an undefeated tournament record for the winners. Brampton defeated Ottawa 2-0, Guelph 2-1, tied Windsor 2-2, beat Oakville 2-0 and edged Mississauga 2-1 in the semi-finals. Troop, a 5-foot-9 first-year winger, will likely return for another season with Brampton's bantams, while Lyons, a high-scoring centre, will move up to the bantam age group. The peewee Canadettes lost their opening game at the provincials in Brampton before reeling off five straight victories, including a 21 triumph over London in the championship game. Both players are Centennial Middle School students and Eighth Line neighbours who also excel in basketball and volleyball. Meanwhile, three Georgetown residents will be front and centre this Saturday in the National Women's Hockey League's playoff championship game. The Brampton Thunder's head coach Steve Bennett and his assistants, Gary McFadyen and Tim Lariviere, will lead their team into the NWHL final against the Montreal Axion at the Powerade Centre in Brampton. The game will be broadcast on TSN beginning at 4 p.m.
