News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

West Flamborough's hockey phenom Melanie Mills is making her mark south of the border.

Mills, who graduated from Highland Secondary School, was named Niagara University Athlete of the Week after scoring three goals and adding an assist last weekend against College Hockey America rival Robert Morris.

Mills lit the lamp twice and helped on another goal all within nine minutes of the third period in the Purple Eagles' 8-1 victory over the Colonials on February 11. The forward scored on a one-timer just in front of the net 3:28 into the final period. She then set up Niagara's fifth goal of the game to increase the lead to 6-1.

With 8:02 remaining in the contest, Mills intercepted a pass from the Colonials' goalie and fired top shelf for her second marker of the game, becoming the second Purple Eagle to score three points in a game this season.

In a 4-3 loss on February 12, Mills scored a power-play goal with 40 seconds remaining in the game, getting Niagara within one goal.

In 26 games this season, Mills leads all Purple Eagle freshmen and ranks third on the team with 11 points. She is tied for third on the squad with six assists and ranks tied for fifth with five goals. She has two multi-point games and is one of three skaters with a multi-goal game.

Niagara is back in action this weekend, February 17-18, when it travels to Detroit, Mich., for a CHA match up against Wayne State.
