Lady Avalanche score four against Canadians for first road win


The Hamilton Lady Avalanche scored four times against the Sudbury Canadians to earn another W-League win, and their first win on the road.

Avalanche Keepers Stacey Van Boxmeer and Nicole Mercer made a total of 10 saves, allowing only one goal for the Canadians. Four goals on seven shots for Hamilton led to a second consecutive victory over Sudbury.

Hamilton now has a record of 2 wins and 3 losses for their inaugural season.

Within the first 15 minutes of the game Heather MacDougal scored the first goal with the next three goals in the final half of the game. Coach Billy Mckenna made a good decision to move Danya Barsalona and Brittany Bisnott off the bench in the 2nd half. Barsalona scored 10 minutes into the half assisted by Alison Heydorn. Bisnott proved to steal the show with two goals, five minutes apart, 70 minutes into the game assisted by Chiara Greco and Ashley Tirabassi.

Sudbury’s Megan Schutt assisted by Thalia Playford kicked in the only goal for their team.

Hamilton Lady Avalanche Assistant coach Dino Perri was thrilled with this victory saying, “the women are growing stronger and are becoming more of a team with each game.”

The next home game is on Wednesday (June 14) at 12:00 noon at Brian Timmis Stadium versus the Northern Conference leading Toronto Lynx. The lunch hour start allows for local schools to attend.
