The Montreal Angels have come away with a perfect record in Boston claiming two victories in the tri-series tournament against the New York Lady Magpies and the Boston Lady Demons. 

The Lady Demons proved hard to beat at home with both the Angels and Lady Demons having 9 scoring shots. It would be the Angels slightly better accuracy that would see them edge out the ever improving New England squad by just 5 points. Angels 4.5 (29) def. Lady Demons 3.6 (24). In game two against the Magpies the Angels won first half arm-wrestle to get to half time just six points in front of a gallant New York team. It would take a invigorated second half effort for the Montreal team to eventually put the game away running away 29 point victors with a 4.5 (29) to 0.0 (0) scoreline. The Boston girls would eventually get a much deserved 'W' in game three taking the points over New York by 18 points, Boston 3.2 (20) to New York 0.2 (2).

It would be a tough day at the office for the men's squad who were facing off against a Boston River Rats Metro team. After getting jumped early the Saints were never able to recover, but steadied late in the game to add some respectability to the scoreboard. The Boston River Rats 15.7 (97) defeating the Quebec Saints 4.6 (30) to the tune of 67 points.

The Montreal Angels partnership with the newly formed Ottawa Swan's women's club continued its excellent form this past weekend moving to 3-1 for the season and nestling in to second place on the OAFL league table.

The full match report is here.

The team squared off against Hamilton in Toronto, the Lady Wildcats making a big splash in their first year with two wins from their first three games themselves. With  Tara Cools-Lartigue, Aimee Legault, Margo Legault, Mirabel Eboka and Kelsey making the trip down the 401, the Angel-Swans were in no mood for mercy, stunning the Wildcats with an all-out assault in the first term kicking four goals from nine scoring shots while the Hamilton squad were unable to trouble the scoreboard. The tone would remain much the same for the remainder of the match, the Angel-Swans collecting a valuable win on the road to the tune of 84 points.

Hamilton Wildcats   0.0   1.0   1.1    1.1      (7)
Ottawa/Montreal Angel-Swans   4.5   6.7   9.9  13.13  (91) 

Angel Aimee Legault was outstanding with six goals whilst Margo Legault was also named amongst the team's best. Angel-Swans Aimee Legault and Emma Dickinson have formed one of the most potent attacking duos in the league, both players currently head the league goal kicking table with 9 goals apiece.

The Wildcats will get a shot at redemption on Saturday, June 30th as they make the journey to Ottawa.
