Queens hockey knock off SAIT Trojans

The RDC Queens displayed some much-needed resiliency on the road.

After allowing the opening goal to the SAIT Trojans, the Queens scored twice in the second period to power their way to a 2-1 win in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s hockey action.

Camryn Wallan buried at 7:01 of the second for the Queens to tie the game and first-year defenceman Tessa Ross scored her first ACAC goal with one second left in the frame. It was also the game-winning goal.

After a 27-save shutout Friday, Queens goalie Karlee Fetch had another strong night Saturday with 32 saves in the victory. Ashley Sutherland and Neisha Germann had assists for RDC.

The Trojans went just 1-for-7 on the power play in the loss and goalie Kaylin Schellenberg stopped 23 shots.

With the win, the Queens moved to 14-4-2 on the year. They have four games left in the ACAC campaign.

The RDC Kings dropped a 3-2 decision Saturday at home to the Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder.

The Thunder and Kings traded goals in the first, with Mathieu Lapointe scoring for RDC.

Scott Allan put the Thunder ahead early in the third, but Ryley Smith scored for the home side on the power play 79 seconds later.

Late in the game, Brandon Wallis notched the game-winner for the Thunder. Tanner McCorriston stopped 26 shots for the win, while Arik Weersink allowed three goals on 16 shots for RDC.

With six games left in the ACAC season, the Kings sit second with a 15-5-2 record and one point ahead of the MacEwan University Griffins.

The Kings will host a pair of games against the Portage College Voyageurs next weekend.
