The Victoria Phantoms swept the BC Thunder in a

two-game series on Vancouver Island to move into

fourth place in South Coast Female Amateur Hockey

League action.

Both games were 4-3 decisions, and extended Victoria’s

win streak to six games.

Lise Gillen scored her second goal of the game with

11 minutes remaining in last Saturday’s game at the Panorama

Recreation Centre, a goal that stood up as the

winner. Hayley Voytechek and Katie Little also scored

for Victoria, with Pam Lou-Poy and Jennifer Mathieson

contributing with two assists each.

Emily Bajkov, Tamara Jaksa and Kaitlyn Knowles tallied

for the Thunder.

Caroline Lawrence scored the winner for the Phantoms

Sunday morning in Esquimalt, breaking a 3-3 tie

with 11 minutes to go. Gillen, Mathieson and Voytechek

scored earlier for Victoria, with Jaksa netting

two and Bajkov scoring once for the Thunder.

The Phantoms overtook the Richmond Devils for

fourth place.

In more good news for the Phantoms, Lise Gillen was named

offensive player of the week for the league.

Gillen scored three times in a pair of 4-3 wins over

the BC Thunder last weekend. She now has five goals in

13 games played this season.

Next up for the Phantoms are the Ridge Meadows Moose

in back to back games January 3 and 4. The January 3

game is in Moose territory while Sunday January 4 will see

the puck drop at 11:30 AM at Archie Browning Arena.

The Phantoms currently sit in fourth place in the  SCFAHL.
