WEST GOSHEN — It was hard to tell if Radnor was playing goaltender Tessa Landry or if, somehow, NHL legend Patrick Roy had taken her spot in net.

The freshman made an astounding 63 saves en route to a 2-2 tie against Unionville in a girls varsity game Wednesday night at Ice Line.

“Holy smokes,” said Unionville coach Dave Elvin. “If you look at the number of shots, it’s phenomenal. We had a lot of offense going to the net. We had some plays the players executed, but we just could not solve the riddle of the Radnor goaltender tonight.”

It wasn’t one of those games where Landry saw every shot either. There were several instances where she was drawn out of position and left Unionville (8-1-2) with a gaping side of the net to shoot out, only to have a leg pad flash out of nowhere to stop the puck from crossing the goal line.

Facing that much rubber has to be tough, even on a seasoned veteran goaltender in the league.
“It’s very, very stressful (facing Unionville), especially with the amount of shots that you get,” Landry said. “I just really hoped I got good defense and tried my hardest in the game.”
