ST. THOMAS - The St. Thomas Panthers made sure they were bringing home a title.

Andie Dekker scored twice and goalie Caroline Rogers was perfect, as the Panthers blanked the Bluewater Hawks, 5-0, to capture the Western Ontario Girls Hockey League U11 HL title, today at Strathroy.

"They were ready to go right from the start," coach Craig Barnes said. "Andie Dekker scored on the first shift, and they took off from there. Today was the most complete game the team played all year."

Samantha Lee, Austen Goebel and Ivee Benwell, completed the scoring.

"I was impressed on their focus from the start, and they didn't let up all game,"  Barnes said. "They really played well throughout the entire game. It was definitely a fantastic way to finish the season. The girls grew all season. Couldn't be more proud of them and entire coaching staff."

St. Thomas won game one, 4-3, on home ice, March 21.

Dekker, Goebel, Kensley Rundle and Olivia Bosma scored.
