Winning Weekend for JRs
SPORTSGATE HOCKEY: November 17, 19, 2017: The Kingston Jr. Ice Wolves, who seven times earlier this Provincial Women's Hockey League season had flirted with a shutout only to wind up with a single goal against, completed a blanking on Sunday afternoon.

Goaltender Camryn Fennell, who had three previous one-goal-against games, stopped all 27 shots she faced as the Ice Wolves silenced the Burlington Barracudas 3-0 at the Invista Centre.Fennell improved her won-lost-tied record to 5-3-1 and lowered her goals-against average to 2.08. Her five wins ties her for fourth most among league netminders.It was the team's 10th win of the season and lifted the Ice Wolves into fourth place in league standings with a 10-7-2-0 record for 22 points exactly midway through their 38-game schedule. It is the best first half in franchise history — the Ice Wolves had 20 points last season at the halfway mark — and is also represents the second-highest total recorded by the Ice Wolves over a full single season. Last year's team owns the single-season points record of 40.Darcie Lappan scored what proved to be the game-winning goal just 2:20 after the opening faceoff. Tatum White added some insurance less than three minutes later, and Scout Watkins-Southward scored into an empty net with 4:22 left in the third period to cap the win.Lappan, who added an assist for a two-point game, moved within a point of the league points leader with 21. She is third in the league in both goals (nine) and assists (12). Kingston outshot Burlington 29-27 in the game.
