Picton, Ont., native Jess Jones opens the scoring for Team Sonnet with an amazing goal in the championship game against Team Scotiabank at the PWHPA Dream Gap Tour showcase hosted by the Washington Capitals.

Kaitlin Willoughby put Team Scotiabank on the board with a goal early in the second period, but Team Sonnet quickly responded with a goal from Eldridge to make it 3-1.

Team Scotiabank goalie Kelsey Roberts came up with a big stop on a penalty shot from Loren Gabel, and Amanda Pelkey made it a one-goal game late in the second period with her third goal of the tournament.

But the floodgates opened in the final frame when Team Sonnet rolled off seven unanswered goals. Bach scored a pair, while Gabel and Eldridge each added another.

Field scored all three of her goals in the third period — including the final goal with under two minutes left.

With the victory, Team Sonnet takes home the fourth weekend prize pot of this PWHPA season — avenging their loss in the final against Team Scotiabank at the Kipling showcase in Toronto in December. The other two showcases this season were hosted in Truro, N.S., and Ottawa.

Team Adidas defeats Team Bauer in consolation game

Earlier on Sunday, American Baylee Wellhausen scored two goals in regulation and added another in the shootout to help give Team Adidas (Minnesota) a 4-3 victory over Team Bauer (Boston) in the consolation game.

It was a great bounce-back win for Team Adidas after surrendering six unanswered goals while falling 6-2 to Team Scotianbank in Saturday's semifinal.

Team Bauer fell short by just one goal in both games at the tournament, beginning with Friday's 4-3 semifinal loss to Team Sonnet.

Wellhausen struck first in the shootout, but Team Bauer's Cat Quirion responded with a goal of her own. Team Adidas defenceman Mellissa Channell slipped a shot past Terra Lanteigne, and Sydney Scobee made a big save on Team Bauer forward Bailey Larson to seal the victory.

The PWHPA is divided into five training regions in North America: Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Minnesota and Boston.

The event marks the sixth time the PWHPA has partnered with an NHL team for a Dream Gap Tour showcase over the last two seasons, having previously partnered with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, New York Rangers, St. Louis Blues and Chicago.

The Capitals and PWHPA will also present three clinics for local players, featuring instruction by PWHPA athletes and coaches, and the Capitals youth hockey development staff during on- and off-ice sessions.
