MARKHAM, Ontario (AP) - Janine Weber scored in overtime to give the Boston Blades a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Stars in the Clarkson Cup women’s hockey championship game.
“It just happened so fast and I haven’t yet realized what happened,” Weber said. “Last year in college I scored in overtime to win the Mayor’s Cup between Brown and Providence in our city, so we won last year in overtime and that’s pretty big. But now that I think about it, it is the biggest goal I ever scored.”
Boston also won the Canadian women’s hockey league championship in 2013.
“Winning this is one of the biggest things you can do in women’s hockey and I’m so proud of our team to go through everything we did and win it in overtime,” said Weber, an Austrian who will join her national squad next month at the IIHF Division I world championships in Poland.
Hilary Knight and Brianna Decker also scored for Boston. Emmanuelle Blais and Ann-Sophie Bettez scored for Montreal.
