Queens finish regular season with shutout

CALGARY — The RDC Queens looked like a team ready for the playoffs in the Alberta Colleges Women’s Hockey League, as they finished their regular season with a 5-0 win at SAIT Saturday. “We played well and had some luck around the net which we didn’t have Thursday (a 3-2 overtime loss to SAIT),” said Queens head coach Bob Rutz. “We also had some finish and got going early.”

CALGARY — The RDC Queens looked like a team ready for the playoffs in the Alberta Colleges Women’s Hockey League, as they finished their regular season with a 5-0 win at SAIT Saturday.

“We played well and had some luck around the net which we didn’t have Thursday (a 3-2 overtime loss to SAIT),” said Queens head coach Bob Rutz. “We also had some finish and got going early.”

Queens offensive leader, Jade Petrie, got the Queens rolling, scoring her seventh and eighth goals of the season at 5:58 and 7:29 of the first period.

Laura Salomons gave the Queens a 3-0 lead connecting at 19:14 of the opening frame. Emily Lougheed notched her seventh of the season at 6:57 of the second period and Hailey Smyl put the finishing touches on the evening scoring at 19:51 of the third period.

Camille Trautman made 28 saves for her league-leading fourth shutout of the season and eighth win. She also led the league with a 1.24 goals-against-average and a .951 save percentage.

Laticia Castillo started for SAIT and made 11 saves on 14 shots in the first period. Jocelyn Wynnyk made 10 saves on 12 shots the rest of the way.

The Queens face NAIT in a best-of-three league semifinal with Grant MacEwan receiving a bye.

GMU finished first thanks to a 4-3 win over NAIT Saturday.

The semifinal dates will be announced Monday, although it’s expected the second game will go Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at the Arena.
