Kenmore Takes Section VI Championship In Double OT


It was a nail biting evening at the Northtowns Center in Amherst as Kenmore took on Williamsville in the Section VI Championship of the WNY Girls Varsity Ice Hockey Federation.

Kenmore opened the scoring in the second period off the stick of Kaeli Mathias braking a period plus of no scoring. However in the third period Williamsville’s Rachel Grampp put one past Goalie Lauren Pray for a 1-1 tie.

It took a second overtime and a lot of hustle by both teams for Kenmore Captain Alyssa Dollendorf to score the game-winner.

In goal for Kenmore and facing 36 shots was Lauren Pray; in net for Williamsville, facing 23 shots, was Theresa Meosky.

Kenmore now travels on the Canton (NY) to play in the New York State Girls Ice Hockey Championship against undefeated Beekmantown on Friday (Feb. 8) at 8 p.m. Potsdam faces Alexandria Bay in the early game and the winners of those two games will meet in the Championship game on Saturday at noon at the Canton Ice Pavillion.
