Defending against a female player

Hi guys,

I play D in a bottom tier beer league. We played last night and the opposing team had 2 female skaters (forwards). I was already playing pretty bad last night, losing the puck, wiffing on passes, making bad passes, etc, so I wasnt feeling too good about myself. On top of that, I do not defend well against female players. I don't check them as hard, I pretty much let them skate into the offensive zone, and I try to avoid any body contact. The only thing I do try is a stick / poke check. I feel like I let my team down with my poor play. A couple of goals were the result of me not checking the girls as hard as I normally would a guy. How do you guys play against female players?

Thanks!
