Women’s hockey team prepares to tame Cougars
The Trojans have advanced to their first provincial championship in four years after defeating their institute of technology brethren (or rather, sisters) from NAIT three games to one over the past two weekends.
It’s the furthest level many of the players have reached in a Trojans’ uniform, as well as head coach Terry Larson.
“Everyone is really excited, and there were tears from some of the girls after it was done,” he said.
“The girls were really up for the game tonight. They were nice and loose. Even in between periods, we never got tense.”
The team scored 15 goals in the three victories, more goals than they often scored during regular season play.
“We had three lines working really well again tonight. That’s going to be very beneficial, heading into this series against Mount Royal right away,” said Larson. “And we’re finding a way to score.
The Trojans haven’t defeated the Cougars since October of 2009, but the team will tackle this challenge starting this weekend in a best-of-five series.
