On Sunday afternoon, the Voyageurs women's hockey team extended their winning streak to six games after Shanna Dolighan shutout the visiting York Lions, 2-0.
The Voyageurs scored the game's first goal in the latter half of the first period when Morgan McCann banged in a rebound at 16:01 on the power play, with assists going to Ellery Veerman and Brooklyn Davis, giving the Voyageurs a momentous launch into the second period. McCann's goal was the only goal of the period as the Vees outshot the Lions 9-7.
The second period was relatively uneventful as neither team was able to score and the shots were tied at eight a piece. Both teams also had a power play opportunity but could not convert.
McCann would connect for her second goal of the afternoon at 11:15 of the third period after Myla McCormick and Nicole Vigilanti set up the play. McCann's second goal would be all the Vees needed as Dolighan shut the door stopping 10 shots in the final period.
With the Vees sixth straight win, they now sit tied for seventh in the conference and just 10 points out of first place.
