Playoff Game vs Balmoral Hall

In the final game of the Buffalo playoff weekend, NEHC faced off vs Balmoral Hall from Winnipeg, MB, Canada.

Balmoral finished the regular season 10-7-7, lead by two sets of twins, the Wabick sisters, who are committed to UConn, and the Lea sisters.

Balmoral got on the board early in the first but NEHC kept battling hard.

Late in the third, Cassidy McNeeley, F SR (South Easton, MA) captain, gained the puck back at the offensive blue line and skated it back into the zone. Cut into the middle at the top of the circle, drag the goalie across her net and shoot it past her into the back of the net to tie the game.

At the final buzzer the score was 1-1.

NEHC finished the weekend 2-1-1, only allowing 8 goals against and scoring 11 goals for over the 4 games.
