Johnston leads Team Scotiabank past Team Sonnet

Four-time Canadian Olympic medallist Rebecca Johnston led the way as Team Scotiabank defeated Team Sonnet 5-4 later on Saturday.

The 33-year-old from Sudbury, Ont., scored twice, including a highlight-reel end-to-end goal to tie the game in the third period. 

Alex Carpenter gave Team Scotiabank a 1-0 lead in the first period, but Alexa Vasko responded for Team Sonnet with the second-period equalizer.

The wild seven-goal third period saw back-and-forth action with both teams firing on all cylindres.

Erin Ambrose went top shelf to give Team Sonnet the momentary lead early in the period, but Johnston tied it up with an incredible goal. The former Cornell Big Red forward carried the puck out of her own end and deked around defender Micah Zandee-Hart before firing the puck top corner.

Fellow Canadian Olympian Blayre Turnbull scored a power-play goal to put Team Scotiabank on top with a 3-2 lead.

Hannah Brandt tied the game with less than five minutes left, but Team Scotiabank answered once again with defender Jaime Bourbonnais scoring the go-ahead goal on the power play. Johnston added the insurance marker for the 5-3 lead with two minutes to go.

Vasko scored her second goal of the game with 0.1 seconds left.
