The Burlington/Colchester SeaLakers fell behind No. 2-seeded Middlebury early last Friday night and were eventually overpowered by the Tigers, dropping 5-0 to end their season.

Senior goaltender Jenna Blondin hung tough in the net, deflecting a number of scoring opportunities in the second period. Yet the Tigers’ offense proved relentless, tacking on two more later in the period before adding the final two in the third. Middlebury outshot the SeaLakers 37-11.

The No. 7-seeded Burlington/Colchester finished the season 8-12, however the future appears to be bright, with 18 of their players in ninth or 10th grade.
