The women hockeysaurs split their games Jan. 23-24 but still managed to move into fourth postion in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. The weekend wasn’t looking bright after losing 3-2 to the Red Deer College Queens who reside in the somewhat comfortable third position, but turned for the better the next evening. Saturday night featured Dino Tara Hammer putting the puck in the net three times to lead the team to a 5-2 victory over the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ookpiks. This win means the Dinos hold the final playoff spot.
