It was an evening of despair and frustration for the Dinos women's hockey team as all valiant efforts to score were beaten by NAIT netminder Lauryn Dzioba and they lost their first game of the new year 2-1 to the Ooks at the Olympic Oval on Friday.

The Dinos followed this loss with a commanding 8-1 victory over the Ooks in Edmonton on Saturday night.

The failure for the Dinos on Friday was their power play, which went 0-2 in the first and 0-8 in the game.

Although the Dinos were downed 83-79, the game represents the tenacity and drive of both teams as the "real" season approaches.
