U10 Graham Finding Their Groove
Submitted By Lori Black on Sunday, February 2, 2020
3 Consecutive Wins after Holiday Break

These young ladies are finding their stride under the guidance of their bench staff. “It’s really starting to come together for this team” coach Christen Graham commented following their latest streak “as a result of the coaching of Regan Mitchell, Meg Bader and Cassidy Mitchell”. Our players are learning their way, setting up plays, supporting each other and developing the same love of the game their mentors show every time they step on the ice.

St. Marys 12 Waterloo 7
In their first game since the break, the Sniper ladies were fired up. Playmakers Lilly Murphy and
Carlie Muir fed the ring forward to their centres, Kacey Graham and Tayla Paulin showing there
is as much glory in the assist as there is in the goal. Lily Hollestelle-Black added another to mix,
offsetting her penalty later in the game. Devanne Frayne stood tall between the pipes blocking
more shots than got past her.

St. Marys 8 Guelph-M 6
Travelling to the University of Guelph barn, Carlie Muir was pumped to don the pads and help
her team earn another win on the road. The Predators may have been first on the board, but
Graham, fed by forwards Lilly Murphy and Jaseena Cates threw 2 goals up to take the lead.
Paulin shot high on the glove side to bring the Snipers up to 3. Defensive lines Danica Lye and
Leighton Lichti along with Isabella Fluttert and Sydney McLeod were quick to double back and
clear the zone to end the period 3-1. Guelph stepped up first in the second to tie the game in the
first minute. Mitchell settled her crew down and a strong pass from McLeod to Graham put the
Snipers back in the lead. The lead would switch back to Guelph. With less than 3 minutes left,
Lily Hollestelle-Black fired a pass to Cates to tie things up. Cates sent another past the defender
and Murphy delivered a beauty fip shot to earn her hat trick and seal the win.

St. Marys 12 Dorchester 5
Back at home, fans wondered if the winning streak would hold. Frayne headed back in as
goalie. Fluttert moved to forward and Sophie Stewardson slid to defense. Partnered with
McLeod, the duo showed off their skills, back checking fiercely in support of Frayne.
Stewardson was quick to feed the ring forward once she got control. The forward lines were
also committed to team play as 4 of the first 6 goals were spread between players. The Snipers
had the lead at the end of the first and never looked back. Equally impressive, these ladies went
penalty free for the duration of the game.

This week sees Graham’s U10 crew back on home ice Saturday, February 8 at 11:00 am to
face off against Kitchener.
