The Minnesota Whitecaps played their fourth consecutive game against the Boston Pride earlier today and it ended with a heartbreaker.
Games 1 & 2 of this weird 4-game streak happened back in early November and both ended with two L’s for the Whitecaps. There was a week break for the Whitecaps while the Pride went on to play the Whale before returning to Minnesota yesterday to play another 2 games against the Whitecaps.
Game 3 was good to the Whitecaps as they finally bested the Pride with a 0-2 final AND their first win of the season. The Caps have Jonna Curtis to thank for both of those beautiful goals to hoist them to victory. Amanda Leveille also put on an absolute show with a 28 save shutout.
Moving onto today’s Game 4 it was looking like maybe the Whitecaps could win this one too, even the score a bit against their biggest rival. They were tied up 1-1 for a little over half the game. No one could break it in regulation so we took this game to OT.
In case y’all missed it, I was mcfricken heartbroken when Amanda Boulier left the Minnesota Whitecaps to go play for the Boston Pride. So you already know when she scored that OT goal for the Pride tonight, my heart broke a wee little bit. On top of that, she still wears #8, my lucky number so that just smacks a bit harder.
With that L the Whitecaps have officially started their season 1-2-1 and they are 5th in the PHF standings. Not the start you want to have, especially coming off such a stellar year last year. They move onto the Whale the first week in December so hopefully, they can tighten things up and get a few more W’s in the win column.
