|JWHL PLAYOFFS – Grand Forks ND
The Steelers completed the 2012-2013 season with a strong finish in the JWHL playoffs. Following an opening round loss to the eventual 3rd place finishers from NSA, the team won their remaining three games. The final game was an emotionally charged, come-from-behind shootout win over BC rivals OHA – a thrilling end to a challenging yet rewarding season for this team. Thanks to everyone – the players who worked so hard, and all the parents, coaches and other supporters who helped make it possible for them. As one faithful fan declared earlier in the season, this group of girls has “MORE HEART THAN A LION”. Go Steelers!
