The Mooretown Lady Flags U18B team won in a thrilling shoot-out to become the 2024 Girls Buffalo River Outdoor Classic Champions this past weekend.

The tournament, held March 22-24, invites teams from across the U.S. and Canada to compete for gold at the River Works Sports & Entertainment complex in Buffalo, NY.

The Lady Flags went undefeated throughout the tournament, downing the Pittsburgh Predators 4-1, the K-Stars (Northern Michigan) 2-2, and the Cazenovia Chiefs (New York) 5-3. 

Tournament MVP's included Lauren Harvey, "who made the hats rain down on the ice," the coaches said, along with Harlow "Double-bubble" Germain, and Abby Vanderslagt for "streaking down the wing."

“The exciting finals against Tri-City Eagles left the fans on the edge of their seats. The game ended in a 0-0 tie after a five-minute, sudden-death overtime, leading to an exhilarating nine-player shoot-out.”  

Caroline St-Pierre scored the winning goal to end the game 1-0 for Mooretown. 

“Shout to all players for their passion and relentlessness on the ice and to Ruby Frew who also scored the first shoot-out goal and to our MVP goalie Bela DaSilva who stood on her head to bring us home the gold!” The coaches added.

“Very proud of all of you ladies.”
