In the first game, Kelsey Baker saved 30 shots in goal. Natalie Domagala scored two goals to lead the Jacks. Erin McMahon, Ashley Verdeck and Patty Heermann each contributed one goal in Saturday’s contest.

Baker saved 32 shots in Sunday’s win. Domagala was again the leading scorer for the team. She netted a hat trick, giving her five goals in total for the weekend. McMahon added her second goal of the weekend in the win.
