The East Bay Co-op girls ice hockey team won a pair of games last week. The Eagles defeated the Burrillville Co-op team 4-1 on Wednesday, Feb. 13, and then knocked off the Smithfield Co-op team 8-2 on Thursday, Feb. 14.

Against Burrillville, East Bay scored two first period goals and opened a 2-0 lead. Rose Flaherty scored the first goal off assists from Maeve Harrington and Katherine Barker. Barker then added a goal of her own off an assist from Ella Hanley.

Maddie Cox rounded out the scoring for East Bay with a short-handed goal late in the third period. Meanwhile, Ellee Kopecky made 22 saves in net for the Eagles.
