GUELPH – The local District 10 and 4 high school hockey leagues completed their seasons Tuesday with the annual all-star games at the Gryphon Centre.

D10 needed overtime to win the girls’ game 3-2 over the D4 league.

Claire Kelterborn of the Ross Royals scored the winner after a minute and a half of extra time.

After a scoreless first period, the teams scored once apiece in each of the second and third periods.

Aalia Gade of D4’s Wellington Heights Wolverines forced the overtime when she scored with 49 seconds to go in the third period and the goalie on the bench in favour of an extra skater.

Olivia Sarabura of Ross had a goal and an assist for D10 while Keegan Camp of Ross also scored and Georgia Bernhard of the Lourdes Crusaders had an assist.

Other members of the D10 team included Tianna Dietrich, Olivia MacMillan, Emily Palmer and Kara den Hoed of the OFSAA AAA-champion Centre Wellington Falcons, Courtney Phillips of Ross, Hilary Davidson, Elizabeth Schnurr and Chelsea Pergolas of the Centennial Spartans, Lindsay Costello and Sydney Benninger of Lourdes, Laina Carberry and Kyra Kestral of the Guelph CVI Green Gaels and K.J.

In the boys’ game, the visitors defeated the home squad 7-5 thanks to scoring three goals in a span of one minute and 43 seconds in the third period. They secured the win with an empty-netter with a minute and a half to play.

The home squad led 2-1 at the end of the first period and 4-3 after the second before the visitors struck for the win in the third.
