The Maxville-based Roadrunners senior 'A' women's hockey team concluded its NCWHL regular season last weekend on home ice, with a 1-1 tie to the first place Ottawa Storm. 

Tammy MacSweyn, of the Roadrunners, says her team's goaltender, "Melissa Holterman, stood on her head to let us get out of there with the tie." Jenn Ware had the lone goal, assisted by Julie Curtis.

Playoff action is up next, with the Roadrunners getting home games March 3 at 6:30 p.m. versus the Ottawa Storm and March 17 against Smiths Falls, also at 6:30 p.m. Road playoff games are booked for March 21 at the Akwesasne Wild and March 22 at the Goulbourn Rockets.
