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.
