Stingers can’t beat Cougars in close game

by The Concordian February 28, 2001
CALGARY- Despite their best effort, the Concordia Stingers just couldn’t get past the University of Regina Cougars on Saturday, losing a close one 3-2.
The loss eliminated the Stingers from gold medal contention at the Canadian Interuniversity Athletics Union’s women’s hockey national championships. It marks the second year in a row that the Stingers fall short of the gold medal game.
The Stingers failed to convert on their five power play oppotunities and that was the difference in this game. Concordia goaltender Lisa Herritt stoped 21 of 24 shots she faced during the game. Catherine De Abreu scored one of the Stingers goals while Caroline Ouellette scored the other goal shorthanded. Ouellette was named the player of the game for Concordia.
The game was tied at two at the beginning of the third when Regina netted the eventual game winner. At 11:28 of the third, Erin Tady poked a loose puck from the side of the goal during a Cougars power play. Tady also assisted on the Cougars other two goals.
Even with Ouellette’s usual great play, Concordia just couldn’t get the tying goal.
The Stingers, QSSF women’s hockey champions this season, pulled out all the stops in the last two minutes of the game when they were down by one goal. They enjoyed a power play for the last 1:19 of the game and had an extra attacker with Herritt on the bench. Even with the two extra men, they just couldn’t put the puck past Cougars goaltender Laura Paradis.
The Stingers next game was for the bronze medal against McGill on Sunday.
