In the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League last night Portage Collegiate won their third in a row with a 5-4 decision over Fort Richmond.

Shelby Marks, Kelsey Verspeek, Amy Troop, Kelly Gretsinger and Shaye Nelissen accounted for the Saints' scoring while Candace Hulme picked up the win in goal.

Despite the victory, albeit narrow, PCI head coach, Jo-Anne Clark-Gillespie wasn't overly thrilled with the Saints effort, at least not early on in the game. She notes her players' legs were heavy especially in the first period; trailing 2-0 after the opening 20 minutes. Clark-Gillespie points out both sides looked sluggish, but in the middle frame PCI found their jump once again and started to play better.

The Saints will look to keep their winning ways on track on Thursday when they face Shaftesbury in Oak Bluff.

After a couple of weeks away from the game Portage Collegiate will take to the ice this evening in Zone 4 High School Hockey on the road in Winkler when they face Garden Valley Collegiate.  The first half of the year has been a struggle for the Trojans as they've posted a 0-13-1-1 record and are in the basement of league standings.  The Zodiacs on the other hand are sporting a 9-3 mark to this point, with 18 points to their credit and are in third.  Even with those impressive numbers PCI head coach, Blaine Boyle, says they are not indicative of just how well Garden Valley has played, adding in his opinion they are the league's best team with the most talent.  Boyle knows that tonight's game will be no picnic admitting that anytime the Trojans have faced Garden Valley Collegiate the Zodiacs have controlled play from start to finish.  With that said, he adds that PCI will just need to battle hard and see how they stack up with their very capable opponent.  The puck drops this evening at 8:00 o'clock.
