Rough season for Lady Pens


LANTZ: It has been a rough year-to-date for the Pro Cresting Penguins in Nova Scotia Female Midget Hockey League play (NSFMHL).

Defending champion Northern Selects leads the league at 9-1-0-0-0. The Cape Breton MacIntyre Chev Panthers sit fourth in the league at 7-0-3-0-0, led by goalie Julia Carroll.

Metro Boston Pizza sits in fifth place.

Moncton Rockets and Northern Lightning, both teams from N.B. are second and third, while Fundy Nationals, the third N.B. team in the league, is last at 0-0-10-0-2.

East Hants was scheduled to play a road series with the Panthers on Nov. 18-19 in Cape Breton.
