RDC makes quick work of Ambrose

Kings 3 Lions 0

Queens lose another one-goal game, fall to Griffins

Griffins 2 Queens 1 (SO) The Red Deer College Queens women’s hockey team is in danger of losing their season to what ifs? In a broken-record of a campaign that refuses to get on track, the Queens (4-5-4) lost another one-goal Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference game on Thursday despite controlling play for the duration. This time it was 2-1 in a shootout to the last-place MacEwan University Griffins (5-7-1) at the Red Deer Arena. The Queens dominated on the ice and the shot clock but could not capitalize on their opportunities. “With all due respect to Grant MacEwan, they had no business taking two points from us tonight, not a chance,” said RDC head coach Bob Rutz. “But we’ve got to score more than one goal.” READ

That was the best case scenario, as for a while it was thought to possibly be cancer. READ
