The Cairine Wilson Wildcats wrapped up a near perfect season with a near perfect ending on Wednesday, downing the Colonel By Cougars 3-1 to win the NCSSAA Tier 1 field hockey championship.

The Wildcats went into the final riding a seven game unbeaten streak. The only blemish on an otherwise perfect record is a 1-1 tie with Sir Robert Borden that occurred on Sept. 30.

In their only previous meeting on Oct. 20, the Wildcats beat the Cougars 2-0. In their rematch on Wednesday, Colonel By did their best to play a tight defensive game, but Cairine Wilson was just too good.

Wildcats co-captain Anna Streib had an especially strong game. She was tenacious on defence and she kept pushing the ball forward on offense. She also scored her team's first two goals, including the eventual game winner.

The Cougars' lone goal came with seven minutes left in the first half and tied the game at a goal apiece.

Streib's winner came off a scamble in front of the Colonel By net midway through the second half. Rhys Davies added the insurance marker with three minutes left in the game.

Although she wasn't challenged very often, goalie Kaitlyn Sass played a solid game in net for the Wildcats.

Senna Koggel also had a strong game as did Tori Black.

Team roster: Anna Streib (captain), Senna Koggel (captain), Kaitlyn Sass (goalie), Jillian Ohnjec, Hilary Alexander, Olivia Georgitsos, Gillian Skippon, Leah Du, Ayman Ahmed, Tori Black, Aislinn Defries, Faith Goudie, Kendall Wells, Roshnee Mitchell, Charlotte Kaasalanien, Rhys Davies and Mackenzie Parks. Coaches: Meagan Keaney-Morgan, Jamie MacDougall and Krista Corneil.
