Queens drop game 1 of ACAC Women’s Hockey Final

EDMONTON– The RDC Queens are in a hole after game 1 of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference Women’s Hockey final.

RDC traveled to Edmonton and dropped a 2-1 game to the Grant McEwan University Griffins on Thursday night.

The Griffins opened the scoring at 7:22 of the first on the power play, but RDC responded in the third to tie the game at one. Kirsten Baumgardt notched the game-tying marker at 8:41 of the final frame.

Grant McEwan scored their second goal of the night late in the third on the power play to close out the victory.

Tracie Kikuchi stopped 25 shots in the loss for RDC.

The Queens will be on home ice Saturday night at the Centrium when they host the Griffins in game 2 of the best-of-five series.
