Girard native Jen Schoullis scored the first two goals and Mercyhurst alumnus Kelley Steadman scored the last three to lead the Boston Blades to a 5-2 win over the Montreal Stars in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League title game last weekend at Centennial Community Centre in Markham, Ontario.
Steadman’s power-play goal with 8 minutes, 51 seconds left in the second period snapped a 2-2 tie against the two-time defending Clarkson Cup champion Stars. Then she completed her first hat trick in the CWHL and the first in the Blades’ tournament history. Former Laker Meghan Agosta-Marciano scored Montreal’s first goal of the game. She led the league in the regular season with 46 points.
Schoullis, who won a national title at the University of Minnesota a season ago, and Steadman now hope to represent the United States at the IIHF Women’s World Championship, which begins Tuesday and runs through April 9 in Ottawa, Ontario. Agosta-Marciano joins former Laker Bailey Bram on Team Canada’s roster.

Former Mercyhurst University goaltender Hillary Pattenden was the No. 1 overall pick and one of three former Lakers selected in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League draft Tuesday.
Girard native and forward Jen Schoullis was Boston’s fourth-round selection.
Pattenden went first to Team Alberta, the first goalie ever to go No. 1 and the second straight season a Mercyhurst player has been selected in the top spot. Montreal drafted NCAA career scoring leader Meghan Agosta first in 2011.
Forward Bailey Bram was selected by Brampton in the second round and forward Kelley Steadman went to Boston in the fourth round
Pattenden, 21, is the first NCAA goaltender to earn 100 career victories. She is a native of Surrey, British Columbia.
Schoullis, 23, completed her playing career with Minnesota this past spring, winning the NCAA championship. She was among Division I’s scoring leaders and played prominent minutes for Team USA in international tournaments.
Bram, 21, played for Canada at the Women’s World Championship this year. She scored 201 career points for Mercyhurst including 68 as a senior.
Steadman, 22, led Mercyhurst with 33 goals as a senior. She played for the United States in the 2011 world championship.
The season is scheduled to start in October. Montreal is the defending Clarkson Cup champion.
