PICTOU - It was an exciting weekend for the Pictou County Bantam AA Subway Selects as they opened their exhibition season with two wins.
On Saturday the Selects played host to the Colchester Cyclones, winning 5-0.
Scoring for the Selects were Caitlin Taylor (2), Sophia Wornell, Sarah MacNeil and Kassidy MacKinnon. Jenna Landry earned the shutout between the pipes.
On Sunday the Selects traveled to Berwick where they took on the Valley Wild. Despite the long road trip and a short bench, the Subways looked strong in securing a 4-2 win.
Aevan MacDonald, MacNeil (2) and Josie Chisholm scored for Pictou County. Landry was again strong in goal for the Selects in getting her second win of the season.
The Selects, who represent the Highland Region, will be participating in the inaugural Provincial Female Bantam AA league this season. The eight-team league will include four teams from the Halifax area, and one each from the Valley, Colchester, Highland and Cape Breton regions. League action begins next Saturday when the Selects play host to Halifax in Pictou before playing in Cole Harbour on Sunday.
The following weekend, beginning October 25th, the Selects are one of four female AA Subway teams hosting an all female AA tournament dubbed "The Subway Cup".
