Weekend Wins
SPORTSGATE HOCKEY JANUARY 19, 2019: The Kingston JR's took the record-breaking route to an 8-2 victory over the London Jr. Devilettes in their Provincial Women’s Hockey League game Friday night at the Invista Centre. Team-wise, the league-leading Ice Wolves scored a franchise single-game record of eight goals and collected a record six goals in a single period. 

Combined with their 7-2 win over the Mississauga Jr. Chiefs on Jan. 13, they also set a club-high of 15 goals over two games. The JR's also extended their club-record winning streak to nine games and undefeated string to 15 (12W, 3T).Individually, for the first time in their seven-year history, two Ice Wolves collected single-game record-tying hat tricks in the same game — with one coming in a single period. Three players also tied the club record of five points in a game, and one player accumulated a club-record four points in a period. Prior to Friday night’s explosion, the Ice Wolves’ franchise high for goals in a single game was seven, achieved twice earlier this season, and the most goals they had scored in a single period was four (three times over the past two campaigns). The 15 goals they scored over two games smashed their previous record of 12 set earlier this season. Madie Stockfish was the first to collect a hat trick on Friday, netting a pair of first-period goals — the only two goals scored by either team during the first two periods — and then adding her third midway through the third period. Darcie Lappan was next up, tallying three times in the third, 8:23 apart starting at 3:47. The pair matched the three-goal games of Alysha Burriss (twice in 2012-13), Alexa Hoskin (2016-17, 2018-19) and Rebecca Thompson (2018-19).

Stockfish (3G, 2A), Lappan (3G, 2A) and Thompson (1G, 4A) equalled the club-record of five points in a game, with Stockfish (earlier this season, also against London) and Lappan (2017-18) each doing it for the second time in their career. Tatum White scored Kingston’s other goal in the game, while Hannah Tait and Emma McKnight replied for London, which outshot Kingston 29-24 in the game.
