CORNWALL – Marilyn Fortin’s rebound goal off a Rachelle Gallant shot proved to be the difference for the Mid-Isle Wildcats on Friday night.
The Wildcats edged the Kings County Kings 1-0 to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five final series in the P.E.I. Midget AAA Female Hockey League. The game was played at the APM Centre in Cornwall.
Fortin’s goal came midway through the third period, and was all the offence required for Wildcats goaltender Ashley Stead, who put in a strong performance in recording the shutout. Nicole Jay was between the pipes for Kings County.
The Wildcats will look to wrap up the series in Montague on Sunday. Game 4 will begin at 2 p.m.
