That streak is up to 14.

The Ewes (6-0 in Mountain Division league play) had a five-game winning streak entering Friday's road contest against the Steamboat Edge.

The Ewes won, 3-0, outshooting the Edge, 28-8, as the Ewes scored in each period of the game.

Shannon Young had two goals in the game. On the second goal, she was assisted by Jenny Leblanc and Lani Cleverly.

Tammy Strahan had her first goal of the season on "a sneaky little shot that found its way by the Edge goalie," according to a news release.

Kandice Torno recorded her second shutout in Mountain Division league play, and third of the season.

Entering Sunday's home contest against the Eagle Down Valley Divas, the Ewes had a 5-0-2 record against the Divas.

Sunday's 3-1 victory improved that record.

The Divas drew first blood with 3:35 left in the first period, but the Ewe' Leblanc tied it up with 3:57 left in the second period.

Jamie Eckroth got a powerplay goal on an assist by Leblanc.

In the third period, the Ewes scored again with 14:20 to play when the Eagle goalie fumbled the puck and Eckroth slid it past her into the back of the net.

The Ewes next game is against the Steamboat Springs Storm at 6:15 p.m. Saturday.
