Queens top SAIT on the road

The RDC Queens picked three unanswered goals against the SAIT Trojans Saturday night and rolled to a 4-1 victory in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference Women’s Hockey play.

The much-needed win for RDC came after Catherine Longchamps opened the scoring in the first and fifth-year captain Julia Murrell notched two markers in the second, including the game-winner.

Landry Derdall added a power-play goal for the Queens in the third.

Tracie Kikuchi made 18 saves to earn the win in the RDC net.

The Queens will have next week off and play their final two regular season games against the NAIT Ooks. They’ll host the Ooks on Feb. 15 at the NextSource Centre in Sylvan Lake, then wrap up on Feb. 17 in Edmonton.

The Queens are currently two points behind the Grant MacEwan Griffins for second in the ACAC standings but if the GMU wins one of their remaining four games, they’ll lock up second place.
