MARKHAM, Ont -- Catherine Ward, a McGill University graduate now patrolling the blueline for the Montreal Stars was named tournament MVP but it was a bittersweet day as the Stars fell 5-2 to the Boston Blades in the Canadian Women's Hockey League's Clarkson Cup final, Saturday.

Kelley Steadman tallied a hat-trick and and Jen Schoullis added two power-play goals for the winning side. The Blades scored all five goals with the man-advantage and successfully killed off seven power plays, including a late 5-on-3 when Boston was clinging to a one-goal lead.

Meghan Agosta-Marciano and Dominique Thibault replied for Montreal, which outshot the Blades 42-33.

Stars goaltender Charline Labonté, who played the previous five seasons for the McGill Martlets, took the loss. It was the first time that Labonté allowed a goal in the four-day tournament.
