Queens hockey edge NAIT

The RDC Queens ran their record to 6-1-0-1 on the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s hockey season with an impressive 4-2 win Saturday over the NAIT Ooks.

With the win, the Queens sit second in the ACAC standings.

NAIT opened the scoring in the second, but Avery Lajeunnesse responded late in the frame with the Queens shorthanded.

In the third, rookie Brooklyn Rowley notched her third goal of the year to put the Queens ahead.

NAIT tied the game just 2:28 later, but Camryn Wallan buried the game-winner with 7:05 to go in the game. Karlee Fetch picked up the victory, turning aside 19 shots. Victora Johnston, Ashley Sutherland and Janessa Fournier had assists for RDC.

Wallan, a third-year forward from Beaverlodge was player of the game for RDC, while Cass Lyttle won the honour for NAIT.

The Queens will take on the Olds College Broncos in Olds on Nov. 14 and host the Broncos on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m.
