All work, no glory for women’s hockey
The women’s hockey team ran into the Mount Royal Cougars last weekend. Despite earning a point for playing their home game to overtime the Cougars took both games of the series.
The team find themselves now at 3-3-2 and winless in their past five games, but coach Terry Larson said he’s not worried.
“We’re playing well against them,” Larson said. “We just need to keep doing that. The girls are working so hard. It’s going to come.”
The team only has eight goals in their past five games, but Larson said a lot of players have stepped up recently.
“We had so many scoring chances. We just could not put the puck in the net,” Larson said. “We played 100 per cent better than (Friday) night and (Friday) night we didn’t play (terribly). We were pretty decent, actually.
“(Saturday), a lot of our better players stepped up. We controlled the puck. We weren’t fighting the puck. Everything seemed a lot better. We’ve just got to start popping some goals. We seem to be in a goal slump right now.”
Their next challenge comes against the Red Deer College Queens (1-7-0). The teams play at SAIT Nov. 20 at 6 p.m.
