QUEEN'S TAKES WIN IN OT, WHILE LAURIER CONTINUES TO DOMINATE

Queen’s 4, Waterloo 3 OT
Victoria Kaufman (Whitby, Ontario) scored two goals for the No.6 Queen’s Golden Gaels (13-6-1-2) including the overtime winner, to give Queen’s the victory over the Waterloo Warriors (7-8-3-2) 4-3 this past weekend. Queen’s jumped out to an early two goal first period lead, until Krystal Benesch (Waterloo, Ontario), and Melissa Quinn (Waterloo, Ontario) tied it up for the Warriors heading into the break. The second period remained scoreless as the two teams remained deadlock in a 2-2 tie until Queen’s Chantelle Johnson (Hamilton, Ontario) scored a power play goal at the half way mark to put the Golden Gaels up by one. The Warriors continued to get their chances until a Queen’s roughing penalty gave them a powerplay with less than three minutes to play and they made no mistake as Michelle Curtis (Kitchener, Ontario) capitalized on the play. With the win, Queen’s moves into second spot in the league one point ahead of the No.8 Toronto Varsity Blues (12-5-3-1).

Laurier 3, Western 1 (With files from Laurier Sports Information)
The No.2 Laurier Golden Hawks women’s hockey team (18-2-2-0) defeated the Western Mustangs (9-10-1-1-) at Thompson Arena on Sunday 3-1. Lauren Meschino (Toronto, Ontario) opened the scoring for the Golden Hawks . The defenseman-turned-forward picked up her fifth goal of the season beating Western backstop Danielle Le Ber (London, Ontario). Andrea Ironside (Collingwood, Ontario), netted what would be the game winner less then 15 seconds later. Western picked up their lone goal of the match later in the first period as Trisha Quirt (Toronto, Ontario) beat Laurier goaltender Liz Knox (Stouffville, Ontario). Golden Hawk and OUA leading scorer Andrea Bevan (Collingwood, Ontario) netted the insurance marker as the only power play goal of the game. Knox faced 28 shots in the win, while her counterpart only saw 25. The win solidifies the Golden Hawks firm grasp of the OUA lead, while Western currently sits tied for fourth place with one game in hand over the Guelph Gryphons.
