After a brief hiatus, the Founding 4 Podcast is back! On this episode of the Founding 4 Podcast Erica and Mike dig into the 2017-18 Buffalo Beauts season.

The Beauts stumbled out of the gate in October and November, but by the end of the year they had new ownership and became the first NWHL franchise to make three consecutive trips to the Isobel Cup Final. We’ve all heard and read about Buffalo’s winning streak, Hayley Scamurra’s breakout rookie season, and how close the Beauts were to winning the 2018 Isobel Cup, but all of that is just the tip of the iceberg.

This week Erica and Mike are joined by NWHL Goaltender of the Year Mandy Leveille. Lev talked to us about her exceptional season, the Beauts’ amazing run, and shared a fascinating tale surrounding a soccer ball and the Isobel Cup Final in Newark, New Jersey.
