RDC Queens hockey force deciding Game 3

Knock off NAIT 4-3

Queens 4 Ooks 3 (Series tied 1-1)

With their backs against the wall, the RDC Queens hung on for a victory.

After losing the opening game of the best of three Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s hockey semifinal to the NAIT Ooks, RDC bounced back in a big way Saturday.

They had to kill off two penalties in the final 3:09 of the game, including a six-on-three for the Ooks in the final minute and a half. NAIT scored with the goalie out and 1:15 to play to cut the deficit to a goal and with the Queens still shorthanded, Madison Fox shut the door and RDC closed the victory out.

The 4-3 victory forced a Game 3 Sunday, with the winner moving on to face MacEwan University Griffins in the ACAC Final.

In the win, Avery Lajeunnesse buried on the power play to open the scoring.

Cass Lyttle tied the game at 11:01 of the second, but 11:28 later, Mary Hirsch helped RDC regain the lead. With 38 seconds left in the second, Delany Martin evened the score at two.

Madison Sansom buried for RDC early in the third and Ashley Sutherland extended the advantage to two with 3:49 left in the contest.

Game 3 is Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.
