Kings and Queens hockey run-up win streaks on the weekend

The RDC Queens eeked out a win in a double-overtime over the Olds College Broncos Saturday.

RDC earned its third straight win, picking up a 3-2 victory over the Broncos on home ice in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s hockey play.

RDC jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the contest, with goals from Neisha Germann and rookie Sydney Rowley in the first. Sarah Jarvis cut the deficit for Olds in the second and Brynne Doerksen tied the game with 3:01 to play.

Rookie Brooklyn Rowley scored for the Queens just 11 seconds into the second overtime period with the two teams playing 3-on-3. She was named player of the game for her efforts.

Queens goalie Karlee Fetch stopped 14 shots in the win, while Lexi Bruce turned aside 22 for the Broncos.

The Queens improved to 8-1-1-o on the year and sit atop the ACAC standings with 17 points.

RDC is on their bye week this week and will return to action on Nov. 29 in Calgary against the SAIT Trojans.

The Kings are also on a roll, notching their fifth win in a row in Lac La Biche over the Portage College Voyageurs.

Tyler Podgorenko led the Kings with a pair of goals in the 5-2 win, while Austin Hunter, Scott Ferguson and Jantzen Leslie each added goals. Chase Thudium added two assists for RDC and Arik Weersink stopped 19 shots in the win.

The Kings were 3-for-5 on the power play in the victory. With an 8-1-1 record, the Kings sit second in the ACAC, one point behind the NAIT Ooks.

RDC will host the Briercrest College Clippers for a pair of games on Nov. 22 and 23.
