Two nails in the coffin

By Lindsay Gerstmar and Andrea Poupart

After a weekend off from competition, our Dinos women’s hockey team felt well rested and prepared for a weekend fight against their Calgary rivals, the Mount Royal College Cougars, Nov. 18-19.

However, much like previous games this season, the Dinos were unable to put forth their best effort in their first of two games, convincingly losing 4-0. Some positives did come out of this game however. The Dinos broke out of their own end consistently and successfully, something we have not seen much of so far this season.

Saturday night, our ladies put the past behind them and came out firing on all cylinders. Krista Larsen managed to fire her first goal of the season past the Cougar netminder late in the third period. Natalie Gerstmar had a strong showing between the pipes in both games, facing over 75 shots. Unfortunately, the team’s strong effort on Saturday was not enough. They fell 3-1 against the Cougars.

Come cheer on your Dinos as they face the NAIT Ooks Sat., Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Olympic Oval.
