EDMONTON – The RDC Queens got back in the race for first place in the Alberta Colleges Women’s Hockey League with a 2-1 victory over the NAIT Ooks at NAIT Saturday.

The win moved the Queens, 11-4-3, into a first-place tie with the Ooks, 12-5-1, although NAIT holds a 4-2 edge in head-to-head battles.

Both teams have six games remaining on their schedule.

The Queens face third-place McEwan University (11-7-0) Thursday at the Centrium and Saturday in Edmonton before meeting Olds and SAIT to finish their regular schedule.

Jade Petrie broke a 1-1 tie at 17:46 of the third period with her ninth goal of the season to give the Queens the victory.

NAIT opened the scoring with Brittney Savard beating Queens netminder Jen West on the power play at 7:45 of the first period. However, Cassidy Anderson scored a power play goal for the Queens at 17:24 of the opening stanza.

West finished with 27 saves while McKenna Wild made 35 stops for NAIT.

The Ooks took six of 11 minor penalties and a game misconduct.
