The Pictou County Peewee AA Selects split a couple of weekend games against two rival teams from the South Conference.
On Saturday The Selects downed the Sackville Flyers by a score of 6-4. On Sunday the Selects were defeated by Western Valley by a score of 2-0.
The Sackville Flyers paid a visit to the Hector Arena on Saturday afternoon. Sophia Wornell opened the scoring for Pictou County on the first shift of the game, just 30 seconds in when she blasted a point shot through the five hole. Sarah MacNeil had the only assist. Wornell scored two minutes later to put the Selects up 2-0 on an unassisted marker. The Wornell sisters combined to make it 3-0 with four minutes to go in the first period on a goal by Eva, assisted by Sophia.
That seemed to wake the Flyers who scored two goals 30 seconds apart with three minutes to play in the first period to make it 3-2.
Camryn Halliday made it 4-2 when she broke in alone and ripped one to the short side from MacNeil and Taylor MacKenzie. Sackville would add one more before the end of the period to send the teams to the room with the Selects leading 4-3. Sackville came out hard in the third and got the equalizer early. The Subways refused to quit and continued their dominance of the play and with 6:37 to go in the third, Sarah MacNeil was sent in and made no mistake on the wrist shot to the far side. Halliday and Mariah Linehan had assists on the play. Eva Wornell rounded out the scoring with her second of the game to make the final 6-4. Leigha MacDonald had the win between the pipes.
On Sunday Pictou County travelled to Kingston where they took on a solid Valley Wild. It seemed the long drive took its toll on the legs of the Subways as they came out flat and didn't generate much offence early on. After a couple of near misses by Western Valley, the Selects thought they had opened the scoring when a puck got behind the Valley net minder. It was disallowed, however, after the official waved it off having lost sight of the puck during the play. The teams battled to a scoreless tie after one period.
The Valley opened the scoring a little over a minute into the middle frame and added a second goal four minutes later to take a 2-0 lead.
Pictou County battled hard but got into penalty trouble negating any offensive thrust they put forward. At the intermission the Selects dug deep and came out hard in the third. Despite out shooting the Valley, the Subways couldn't solve the Wild net minder. At the end of regulation, the 2-0 score held and the Selects suffered the loss. Jenna Landry took the loss in goal.
The Subway Selects host the TYASA Ducks next Saturday at the Wellness Center.
Game time is set for 1 p.m.
