2 mins read

Sunday saw the first round robin game in the fight for the Isobel Cup as the teams gear up for the semi-finals, beginning on Thursday.

The Toronto Six played Connecticut Whale last night (12:00am GMT, 19:00 EST) and completely dominated with a decisive six goal lead resulting in their fourth win in a row.

Connecticut will now play again today to determine the second seed against the Minnesota Whitecaps – a team Toronto also beat.

There has been no word as of yet about the status of Janine Weber, a Whale player who was injured in the game and had to be helped off the ice by her teammates.

The injury appeared to be to her leg after an accidental collision with Toronto player Lindsay Eastwood, one of the tallest players in the league, standing at six foot.

This came after the first match on Sunday between The Boston Pride and The Buffalo Beauts, the second of their three games (best out of three).

Boston snatched the victory with yet another 6-0 lead, meaning they will face the Beauts again today to determine who will be relegated from the league. The Beauts won in their first bout on Saturday meaning Boston faced elimination yesterday.
