Ravens Atom A vs St Thomas Panthers
Submitted By Mike Willson on Saturday, November 23, 2019
The Waterloo Ravens held the ST. Thomas Panthers at bay and earned a point with a 0 - 0 tie.

Congrats to the veteran Raven's goalie Gabby Wiltsie for picking up her 250th career shutout. That eclipses the combined total number of shutouts by all the goalies in the league. During the post game interview with Gabby, she stated, " The puck looked like a beach ball, it was easy to see because of my teammates."

Gabby was tested early in the first period with a flurry of shots from close range. She kept turning the puck to the side allowing the defense to setup the break out with ease. As the play progressed, the ravens held sustained pressure deep in St Thomas' zone. Gritty fore-checking and solid defense lead to a glorious opportunity by Maryn Gilfillan. A quick pad save kept the game knotted up. The first period was over in a blink as only two whistles were blown.

Head Coach Jaime Howe made quick work between the period drawing set plays on his game board inspiring the girls to skate hard. Skate hard they did as Olivia McVicar jumped on the loose puck in the face off circle and weaved her way through St. Thomas. She dished the puck over to Naomi Steinmann who was hauled down during the play. No penalty call was made. Someone forgot to tell the girls is was a hockey game as it appeared to look like a game of ping pong. Waterloo skated up the ice and then St. Thomas marched it right back down. The Panthers nearly scored as the period was closing. Gabby was sharp with the blocker as the puck tried to make its way high stick side.

St Thomas came out strong to start the third period. The defense did their job keeping St Thomas at bay and clearing the traffice out front so Gabby could have a good look at the play. When called upon, Gabby stood her ground firm and made a few game saving stops. One with the glove, one with the butt end of the stick and finally she used her mask to head the puck to the side.

Well played game girls. That was a hard earned point. Good luck on Sunday against Saugeen.
