Toronto Six win 1st Isobel Cup title in OT thriller against Minnesota Whitecaps

In an overtime thriller, the Toronto Six have won their first Isobel Cup title.

The Six, founded in 2019, defeated the Minnesota Whitecaps 3-2 in the championship game on Saturday night.

The game was an intense back-and-forth battle that saw both teams trading chances. The Whitecaps opened the scoring in the first period, but the Six rallied back with a pair of goals from forwards Taylor Woods and Shiann Darkangelo.

The Whitecaps tied the game late in the third period and the game went to overtime. In the extra frame, Toronto forward Natalie Spooner scored the game-winning goal.

It was an emotional moment for the Six and their fans, who were celebrating their first ever Isobel Cup win.

The Six, who are led by head coach Digit Murphy, are the first team in the National Women's Hockey League (NWHL) to win the championship since the league was founded in 2015.

“This is a dream come true for our organization,” said Murphy. “We have worked so hard and our players have been incredible throughout this run. I’m so proud of our team and all that we have accomplished.”

The Six will now look to defend their title next season, but for now, they can enjoy their first ever Isobel Cup win.
