The Neuberg Highlanders remain undefeated in the Damen Eishockey Bundes Liga (DEBL), or Women's Ice Hockey Federal League in English, as they beat Gipsy Girls Villach, 5-2, on Oct. 26 in Kapfenberg.  The Highlanders stay as the top-seeded team in the DEBL standings with a 5-0 record, 6-1 overall.

Highlanders' Julia Willenshofer put the first tally on the scoreboard as she scored an unassisted goal in the eighth minute of the first period.  Jessica Jenkins added another mark to the score when she ripped a shot from inside the blue line.  Just over a minute later, I scored the third goal for the Highlanders as I skated down the right side of the ice toward the net.  I came in from the right side of the net, stopped in front of the goalie, and slid the puck passed the goal on the near post.

After struggling in the first period, the Gipsy Girls managed to score at the beginning of the second period, cutting the deficit to 2 goals.  With a 3-1 lead, the Highlanders did not let up and scored a fourth goal at the end of the second period.  Jennifer Pesendorfer was credited with the goal while Courtney Bradley earned the assist.

In the third period, Bradley scored her ninth goal of the season giving the Highlanders a 5-1 lead.  Villach was able to score one last goal before the end of the game, but the Highlanders took a 5-2 victory on their home ice.

The Highlanders return to action as they play HK Triglav Kranj on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4:15 p.m. in Kapfenberg.
