The Wallaceburg Tartans girls hockey team successfully defended their LKSSAA crown on Thursday in Wallaceburg.

The Tartans topped the LCCVI Lancers in the LKSSAA finals by a score of 6-0 at Wallaceburg Memorial Arena.

“These girls can play,” coach Tom Peel said on social media.

“Thanks to all the fans/families that came out to support us. Bring on SWOSSAA.”

Kate Martin led the way for Wallaceburg with 3 goals.

Natalie Sands added 1 goal and 2 assists, Sam Benedict and Keeley McCarter added one goal apiece, while Taryn Jacobs chipped in with two assists.

Sam Whiteye picked up the shutout in net for the Tartans.
