The Dinos women’s hockey team picked up their first win of the season Sat., Oct. 28. The weekend series started off poorly with the Dinos dropping a 6-1 decision Fri., Oct. 27 to the Trojans at the SAIT Campus Centre. It was time for revenge when the series shifted to the Olympic Oval on Saturday. The Dinos shut out the Trojans 3-0.
“We played very well as a team,” said Dinos head coach Dean Holden. “We’re starting to understand the system. Our passing was outstanding on Saturday and we had exceptional goaltending.”
Vanessa Frederick earned the shutout for the Dinos, stopping all 21 shots she faced. The Dinos picked up two powerplay goals, including their first goal on a two-man advantage at 5:45 in the first. Chelsea Morrill rocketed a cross-ice feed from Ali Webb into the net.
The Trojans failed to score on eight powerplay opportunities.
The Dinos play a home-and-home series with the Mount Royal Cougars Nov. 3–4. The series moves to the Olympic Oval on Saturday. The game starts at 7 p.m. and entrance is free with a student ID.
