Brampton, ON – If the Furies were looking for revenge on Sunday afternoon, they got it. Coming off a 2-0 loss to the Brampton Thunder the night before, Toronto was skating to get back into the win column and end October with a 3-3-0 record.
Success came early on in the first period when Brampton found themselves in penalty trouble, a common theme for both teams throughout the opening frame. Brampton’s Rebecca Vint and Sarah Edney would be called for roughing and delay of game only 30 seconds apart.
With a 5-on-3 in favour of the Furies, Shannon Moulson’s shot from the point was tipped in by Julie Allen for her first of the season and the 1-0 lead at the 4:24 minute mark.
Just 0:19 seconds later, while still on the power play, a pair of rookies would give the Furies a 2-0 lead as Michela Cava scored her second of the season off a pass from Carlee Campbell.
From there the Furies would suffer a blow to their line-up as Kelly Terry was called for head checking on Vint at the 13:16 minute mark and sent off for twelve minutes. Serving her 2 minute penalty was first year defender Ella Stewart.
The Furies would exit the ice at the end of twenty minutes with a 2-0 lead and a man down as Campbell would be called for interference at 19:13.
Shots at the end of the first were 16-15 in favour of the Thunder.
Building off the momentum of killing of their penalty to start the second period, Carolyne Prevost quickly gave the Furies a 3-0 lead at 3:59. Assisting on the play were Cava and Jess Vella.
With Terry out of the box after her twelve minutes served, the Furies pushed to increase their lead outshooting the Thunder for the first time in five periods 9-8.
The third period remained scoreless until the 9:33 mark when Campbell scored her first goal in the CWHL with a point shot off a pass from Terry. From this point on it was clear that the Furies would walk away with the win. They dominated the final frame and finished their scoring with an unassisted marker off the stick of Emily Fulton to make it 5-0.
Christina Kessler got the win for the Furies and head coach Sommer West was able to celebrate her 100th game behind the bench with a win.
The Furies will have a weekend of rest as the CWHL halts all game action during the 4 Nations Cup and will return to the ice on the road as they head to Calgary to take on the defending Clarkson Cup Champions on November 12th and 13th.
