MORRISBURG – The strong start to the season continues for the North Dundas District High School girls’ hockey team.

The Devils were in Morrisburg for a pair of games Mon., Dec. 17 against the Holy Trinity Falcons and Char-Lan Crusaders.

Devils netminder Olivia Salmon can only watch as the Holy Trinity Falcons put home their first goal of the game Mon., Dec. 17.

NDDHS ran into a fast skating and highly skilled Falcons team and dropped a tough 3-0 decision for their first loss of the year. Holy Trinity applied relentless pressure for much of the game and had numerous odd-man rushes only to be held at bay by NDDHS goaltender Olivia Salmon for much of the game.

The Devils had an opportunity on a second period powerplay, but came up empty handed.

Their second match-up was automatically registered as a win as Char-Lan was forced to use a goaltender from another school, which resulted in an automatic forfeit.

In the name of sportsmanship, the ladies decided to play the game anyway. The game finished in a 1-1 tie with Fabienne Puenter scoring the lone goal for the Devils.
