On Saturday, Les Canadiennes arrived in Markham for their back to back games against the Thunder. It was a tight and intense game that left fans on the edge of their seats. Victoria Bach opened the scoring in the 1st and scored another in the second.  Erin Ambrose answered Bach’s second goal, scoring halfway into the second, but Erica Howe shut down the rest of Les Canadiennes with a tough battle to the very end. The Thunder won the game 2-1.

Les Canadiennes came back on Sunday looking to take the second game in the series and with the help of Jill Saulnier, they would get the win.
