Rivals from Carleton Place were the last hurdle to clear on the road to the gold. Every inch was tightly contested in the final game and Carleton Place was first to score. The girls pulled together and managed to tie the game midway through the third. The final minutes of regulation and the five minutes of overtime generated several dramatic moments but no goals. A shootout would be required to settle this one. The Wildcats goalie would stonewall all three shooters while goals came for Nepean on both the second and third shooters. The girls erupted into a golden celebration and wore golden smiles all the way back home. Bantam B regular season and playoff champions has a nice ring to it!!!
