Sirens faced a hard task travelling to Coventry Skydome on Saturday, with everything to play for against Phoenix, in a tight group at the top of the Women’s Division 1 South table.
The 1st period was a pretty even contest with Sirens getting on the score sheet first with a goal from Chelsea Meaney finding the back of the net.
The second brought a blitz of goals from the Sirens within a 15 minute spell, adding seven to the score sheet from Chelsea Meaney, Tori Johnson, Kat Robinson, Chelsea Matheson and a hat-trick from Jodie West-Attrill. Phoenix were only able to answer with one goal from Paige Newell. The outstanding team performance in this period was capped by a fantastic individual goal from Meaney. Short handed with three players bearing down, Meaney skated behind the net and slotted away blocker side of the goalie.
In the third period, Phoenix were able to gain a little momentum and managed to slot away a further two unanswered goals from Newell and Adey, but the game was already secured by the Sirens, bringing the final score to Phoenix 3 – 8 Sirens.
Sirens played their most resounding team performance of this season and especially with Caz Cohen, covering for regular goalie Gerry Park, with a fantastic performance between the pipes.
