The University of Calgary Dinos women's hockey season is off on the right foot, despite dropping both of their opening weekend games versus the Grant MacEwan College Bisons.
After losing a close 3-2 road decision versus the Bisons Fri., Oct. 13, the Dinos returned to Calgary and played them again Sat., Oct. 14 in the home opener. The game was close until a power play goal midway through the third ultimately turned the tide in favour of the Bisons. The Bisons would add one more, winning the game 4-2.
"I thought it was a very good game, both teams played hard," commented Dinos head coach Dean Holden. "We're still all learning a lot about each other."
Forward Chelsea Morrill led the way offensively for the Dinos on Saturday, tearing into her opponents and scoring both of her team's goals.
"Both my forward partners helped me out on both goals," said Morrill. "They gave me a lot of time and space."
"This is the most skilled team that I've been on," said team captain and third-year veteran Elizabeth Nerland. "We're coming together."
