Last Saturday saw Ice Hockey team, Melbourne Ice Women take to the ice for the first time this season at the Medibank Icehouse against the Sydney Sirens. At home in front of a 200+ crowd, Melbourne Ice come from behind with 39 secs left in the game to draw even from being 2 goals down early in the period. With the crowd on the edge of their seat, Ice held off the Sirens to bring the game to a shootout.
With Melbourne Ice two goals up in the shootout, it was up to our Digital Developer, Jodie Walker to make the next save and win the game. It was Sydney Siren’s Sara Edmonds turn to shoot. Coming straight down the middle of the ice, Sara pulls slightly to the left, takes the shot, which results in a glove save by Melbourne Ice goaltender Jodie Walker. Melbourne Ice beat Sydney Siren’s 3 - 2. Now with 4 wins this season, this latest win sees Melbourne Ice Women placed top of the AWIHL ladder! Here’s a pic of Jodie, with Melinda’s daughter, Sophie.
