It was a matchup of the same two organizations, but unlike Sunday’s Challenge Cup season-opener it was Holy Cross coming out on top as the Jubilee Trophy provincial women’s league began its 2018 season at King George V.
Jaime Crocker provided shutout goaltending, and Paula Whitten and Jane Pope scored the goals as the Crusaders defeated Feildians 2-0.
Holy Cross enters the 2018 season as the two-time defending champions. Two years ago, the Crusaders didn’t lose a game, and last year, registered only one setback.
Next action in the Jubilee Trophy league is next Monday, June 4, when Holy Cross plays in Mount Pearl at 7 p.m., while the St. John’s under-17s and Feildians meet 7 p.m. at King George V.
