The Rundown - Week 9

Just because a team found itself in first-place last weekend doesn't mean it will even be in the top-three this weekend. However, sometimes things work out in weird ways when upsets happen. What I'm trying to say is that there was flux in the standings across the CIS this week, but things seemed to have settled in an all-too-familiar way once the action had subsided. Let's take a look what happened on this week's Rundown!

Canada West Results

CALGARY at UBC: Calgary's Sasha Vafina opened the scoring 11:23 into the opening frame for the 1-0 lead. UBC had a solid second period in tallying three times in 3:14! The Thunderbirds got goals from Haneet Parhar at 2:23, Mathea Fischer on the power-play at 4:31, and Kathleen Cahoon at 5:37 to take a 3-1 lead. Iya Gavrilova would get one back in the third period, but Calgary only managed 14 shots in this game as UBC won 3-2. Danielle Dubé picked up the win while Sarah Murray was on the losing end.

CALGARY at UBC: UBC's Logan Boyd kicked off this game with a power-play goal at 10:34 for the 1-0 lead. Delaney Frey would tie the game up at 17:25 for the Dinos. Melissa Goodwin would score while shorthanded at 8:10 of the second period, and UBC went back up by a goal. Iya Gavrilova would respond with a shot that beat Samantha Langford at 14:22, but UBC would take the lead into the intermission as Rebecca Unrau beat Sarah Murray at 17:57 for the 3-2 lead. Calgary would rally in the third period, though, as Kelsie Lang tied this game up once more at 8:31, and the regulation horn would sound with the game deadlocked at 3-3.

The four-on-four overtime period solved nothing, so it was off to the second overtime period where we'd find a winner. It took 32 seconds of three-on-three, but Sasha Vafina would end this as she beat the UBC defence and went high on Langford for the 4-3 double-overtime win! Sarah Murray earned the win in 21-save performance while Langford takes the loss.

SASKATCHEWAN at MOUNT ROYAL: Three goals in three periods, and we'd find a winner. Mount Royal opened the scoring in the first period off Kate Hufnagel's goal at 12:55. Sarah Weninger would double the Cougars' lead at 14:44 of the second period. Saskatchewan's Brooklyn Haubrich would get one back at 10:19 of the third period, but that would be the final goal scored in this contest as Mount Royal downs Saskatchewan by a 2-1 score. Emma Pincott stopped 23 of 24 shots for the win while Cassidy Hendricks took the loss.

SASKATCHEWAN at MOUNT ROYAL: The Huskies were looking to turn the tables on the Cougars, and they opened the scoring in the second period. Marley Ervine scored a power-play just 19 seconds into the frame as Saskatchewan jumped out to the 1-0 lead. They would double the lead when Kaitlin Willoughby scored with 29 seconds left in the second period, and Mount Royal had a bit of a hill to climb. They would get one back on a power-play of their own when Kate Hufnagel potted a goal at 14:43, but that's how the game would end as the Huskies won 2-1. Cassidy Hendricks stopped 26 of 27 shots she faced in the win while Jess Ross fell short in the Saskatchewan net.

REGINA at MANITOBA: It took until the second period, but the scoring would start with Bailey Braden beating Rachel Dyck to put Regina up 1-0 at 13:27. Manitoba would answer back 1:06 later when Courtlyn Oswald took a feed from Venla Hovi in the slot and ripped a wrist shot high over Toni Ross' glove for the 1-1 equalizer. The third period would see one goal scored as Jaycee Magwood would deflect a Bailey Braden shot from a sharp angle over Dyck's shoulder for the 2-1 lead, and the Huskies would protect that lead to the final horn for the win. Ross stops 24 of 25 shots sent her way while Rachel Dyck came up short on this night.

REGINA at MANITOBA: The second half of the two-game set was a one-goal affair. Literally. On the power-play, Manitoba's Alana Serhan set a screen in front of Toni Ross, and Caitlyn Fyten was able to skate in off the point and send a rocket of a wrist shot high on the blocker side at 14:24 of the third period for the only goal of the game. Rachel Dyck made 34 saves in the 1-0 shutout win while Toni Ross made 29 saves in the loss.

ALBERTA at LETHBRIDGE: Lethbridge finally broke the scoreless streak last week, but Alberta decided to start a new one foe the Pronghorns. Goals by Ashley Morin at 2:08 and on the power-play at 15:24 of the first period set the tone, and Janelle Froehler's marker at 11:42 of the third period was all that was needed for the 3-0 shutout by the Pandas. Lindsey Post was perfect on all 23 shots she faced while Alicia Anderson took the loss.

ALBERTA at LETHBRIDGE: Alberta kicked this game off with another first-period goal as Autumn MacDougall beat Alicia Anderson on the power-play at 7:42 for the 1-0 lead. The shutout streak, though, would end at 87:14 this time as Kirsten Reeves beat Lindsey Post at 7:14 of the second period, and we were knotted up at 1-1. It appeared that these two teams were headed for overtime as the deadlock continued late into the third period, but Lethbridge's Lauren Fredrich would find the back of the net with 3:03 to play, and the Pronghorns earned themselves the 2-1 win over the top team in Canada West! Alicia Anderson picked up the win while Lindsey Post took the loss.

Ontario Results

WATERLOO at GUELPH: The Gryphons opened the game with a pair of goals in the first period as Mallory Young beat Stephanie Sluys at 6:02 and Averi Nooren followed suit at 11:20. Waterloo would get one back 13 seconds into the third period when Paula Lagamba found room behind Valerie Lamenta to make it 2-1 for Guelph, but the Gryphons would restore the two-goal lead off the stick of Jessica Pinkerton at 16:06. Waterloo wuld make things interesting as Stephanie Digness scored with 1:30 remaining, but Lamenta would shut things down the rest of the way to help Guelph to the 3-2 win. Lamenta picks up the win while Sluys was on the losing end in this one.

QUEEN'S at WESTERN: It was all Queen's in this one. Courtenay Jacklin scored at 13:37 of the second period, and they would get a second goal from Jacklin on the power-play at 19:09 of the middle frame. That would be all that Caitlyn Lahonen needed as she stopped all 29 shots she faced as Queen's downed Western 2-0. Kelly Campbell took the loss in this game.

UOIT at YORK: The Ridgebacks opened the scoring at 4:26 when Mariah Wilson beat Megan Lee, but York would answer back with 22 seconds to play in the opening frame when Kristen Barbara scored on Tori Campbell. And then we wouldn't see another goal almost an hour. UOIT and York played through regulation time and two overtime periods until they hit the shootout tied at 1-1.

If you like free hockey, this shootout wasn't done quick either. It took ten rounds, a York goal by Jenna Gray, and a Megan Lee stop on Victoria MacKenzie for the York Lions to win by a 2-1 score in the shootout. Megan Lee made 35 saves on 36 shots plus eight more in the shootout for the win while Tori Campbell stopped 36 of 37 shots plus seven more in the shootout in the loss.

LAURENTIAN at RYERSON: The Voyageurs got a pair of first-period goals from Julie Hebert to go up 2-0. Hebert scored at 5:58 and then added a power-play goal at 8:12 to get the Voyageurs off on the right foot. Ryerson's Alex Rodriguez would get one back on the power-play at 9:06 of the second period, but that would be all the Rams could muster on this night as Laurentian skates to the 2-1 victory. Laura Deller stopped 23 shots in the win while Ally Sarna records the loss.

NIPISSING at TORONTO: Toronto's Kassandra Roache opened the scoring on the power-play at 5:28 of the second period when she beat Jacqueline Rochefort to put the Varsity Blues up 1-0. Taylor Day would double the lead at 5:20 of the third period while on the power-play, but that seemed to spark the Lakers. Nipissing's Carly Marchment beat Valencia Yordanov 1:27 later, and Kaley Tienhaara would tie the game on a power-play at 14:45 for the 2-2 tie.

This game would go to overtime, and it was in the second overtime period where a winner was crowned. Taylor Murphy's unassisted tally at 2:30 of the fifth period gave Nipissing the 3-2 win over the Varsity Blues! Rochefort picked up the win while Yordanov suffers the loss.

BROCK at WINDSOR: It was almost all Windsor in this one. Erinn Noseworthy opened the scoring for the Lancers on the power-play just 5:32 into the game, but Brock responded with a goal from Christina Ieradi at 11:39. From there, Windsor took over. Krystin Lawrence and Shawna Lesperance scored 21 seconds apart at 4:38 and 4:59, respectively, of the second period, Lawrence would add another at 3:32 of the third period with the man-advantage, and Jillian Rops would add an empty-netter at 17:12 to pace the Lancers to the 5-1 win. Ingrid Sandven picked up the win in a 20-save performance while Jensen Murphy took the loss.

QUEEN'S at WINDSOR: They scored five the night before, but only needed one on Saturday. Shawna Lesperance scored at 4:13 of the first period while Ingrid Sandven shut the door on the Queen's Gaels as the Lancers won 1-0. Sandven stopped all 27 shots she faced while Caitlyn Lahonen stopped 25 of 26 shots in a losing effort.

GUELPH at WESTERN: Western's Anthea Lasis opened the scoring on the power-play as she beat Valerie Lamenta for the 1-0 lead. Guelph's Averi Nooren would score on a power-play just 2:33 into the third period to tie the game, but Lasis would strike again on the power-play at 9:58 to put the Mustangs up 2-1. We weren't done there, folks. The Gryphons tied the game with 26 seconds to play when Christine Grant found the back of the net, so it was off to extra time!

Both overtime periods would solve nothing, so it was off to the breakaway challenge for a victor. Western's Katelyn Gosling and Stacey Scott both beat Lamenta while Kelly Campbell shut the door on Gryphons as Western takes this one by a 3-2 score! Campbell picks up the shootout win while Lamenta suffers the loss.

NIPISSING at RYERSON: Just one team put ink on the scoresheet. Zosia Davis scored on the power-play at 5:50 of the opening frame while teammate Kayla Carter scored on a power-play of her own at 6:57 of the third period to lead the Nipissing Lakers to the 2-0 victory. Jacqueline Rochefort stopped 40 shots in the shutout victory while Ally Sarna was on the losing end.

LAURENTIAN at TORONTO: Taylor Day had a pair of goals for Toronto in the second period at 2:17 and 17:34 to put the Varsity Blues up 2-0. Laurentian's Julie Hebert scored a power-play goal just six seconds into the third period to make it 2-1, but Sonja Weidenfelder put Toronto back up by a pair of goals at 7:58. Valencia Yordanov would take care of the rest as the Varsity Blues skated to the 3-1 victory. Yordanov records the win while Laura Deller was assessed the loss.

YORK at LAURIER: The Golden Hawks came to play. Robyn Degagne scored on the power-play at 11:39 in the first period. Erika Kiviaho added another goal for Laurier at 17:51 of the second period. Jessica Prevette made it 3-0 at 3:31 of the third period. It became 4-0 when Haley Baxter found the back of the net on the power-play at 13:01. York's Erin Locke would break the shutout at 16:01 on a power-play, but Madison MacCulloch's empty-net goal sealed the 5-1 win for Laurier. Lauren Webber stopped 26 of 27 shots in the victory while Megan Lee took the loss in this one.

Quebec Results

CONCORDIA at MONTREAL: The Carabins were all over the Stingers in this one. Maude Laramee opened the scoring at 16:34 and Emmanuelle Passard made it 2-0 for Montreal with seven seconds to play in the first period. Lore Baudrit would add a third goal at 15:33 of the second period, and Ariane Barker woudl round out the scoring at 17:17 of the third period for the 4-0 Montreal victory. Marie-Pier Chabot stopped all 16 shots she faced in the shutout win while Katherine Purchase was on the losing end in this one.

CARLETON at OTTAWA: The GeeGees were the only team on the scoresheet in this one. Goals by Carling Chown at 8:43 of the first period, Carol-Ann Upshall on the power-play at 11:08 of the second period, and an empty net goal by Roxanne Rioux at 18:36 of the third period paced Ottawa to the 3-0 victory. Sarah-Maude Labrecque, who wears #25 as a goaltender, was perfect on the 28 shots she faced for the shutout and win while Katelyn Steele took the loss.

CONCORDIA at CARLETON: Ann-Julie Deschenes would get the Stingers off on the right foot as she scored on Katelyn Steele just 1:24 into the game. Carleton would tie the game up at 13:00 when Hannah Dinovitzer beat Briar Bache, but the Stingers would regain the lead before the end of the period when Tracy-Ann Lavigne scored at 17:56 on the power-play for the 2-1 Concordia lead.

From there, the Ravens took over. Mackenzie Coney tied the game 1:33 into the second period, and she would add a second goal at 5:21 of the third period to put Carleton up 3-2. An empty-net goal by Shannon Pearson with 1:31 to play put the game out of reach as Carleton skated to the 4-2 victory! Steele earned the 40-save win while Bache took the loss despite only seeing 15 shots.

OTTAWA at MCGILL: This game was all about the power-play. Marimee Godbout-Parent put Ottawa on the board while on the power-play at 16:55, but McGill's Brittney Fouracres would tie the game up with ten seconds to play in the period while on the power-play. Kelsie Moffatt would put McGill up 2-1 on a power-play at 9:29 of the second period, but Ottawa would tie the game 3:50 later when Laura Turcotte scored at even-strength! The third period would see the winning goal scored on - you guessed it! - the power-play as Melodie Daoust found the bakc of the net at 10:14 for McGill as the Martlets skated to the 3-2 victory! Taylor Hough picked up the win in this penalty-filled affair while Maude Levesque-Ryan took the loss.

Maritime Results

MONCTON at ST. THOMAS: Two of the top teams in the AUS clashed on Friday night. Emily Oleksuk put the Tommies on the board at 5:26 when she beat Emilie Bouchard, but the Aigles Bleues took over from there. Kaitlyn Gallaway scored at 8:18, Amelie Dion scored at 9:29, and Kaitlyn Gallaway added a third goal at 11:14 as Moncton blitzed Taylor Cook for three goals in 2:56 to take a 3-1 lead.

Dion would make it 4-1 with her second goal of the night on the power-play at 5:45 of the second period. The Tommies would chip one goal off the total when Kelty Apperson scored on the power-play at 9:12 of the third period, but that goal would round out the scoring as Moncton wins 4-2. Emilie Bouchard picked up her fifth win of the season while Taylor Cook took the loss.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER at UPEI: The game was a little yin and yang. Rachel Colle beat Pascale Daigle at 11:06 as UPEI took the 1-0 lead. Samantha Sweet would make it 2-0 at 11:23 of the second period, and Andie Boeckman made it a 3-0 game just 34 seconds after Sweet's goal.

The third period was all StFX. Emily Power scored at 8:00, Jenna MacDonald added another goal 1:30 later, and Sarah Bujold would beat Marie-Soliel Deschenes with 1:30 to play to send this game to overtime! With momentum on their side, the X-Women would find the winner in the extra period as Daley Oddy dented the twine at 7:57 for the 4-3 overtime win! Daigle picked up the win while Deschenes was on the losing end in this one.

DALHOUSIE at UPEI: UPEI was looking to rebound after the overtime loss the day before, but they have to score goals in order to win. Dalhousie's Laura Brooks beat Marie-Soliel Deschenes at 6:28 on the power-play for the only goal of the night, and the Tigers would escape with the 1-0 win. Jessica Severeyns made just 12 saves in the shutout win while Deschenes stopped 24 of 25 shots in a losing effort.

MOUNT ALLISON at SAINT MARY'S: There were a lot of goals scored, and mostly by one team. Here we go. Hayley Halilihan at 7:49 and Breanna Lanceleve at 19:51 of the first period put the Huskies up 2-0. Caitlyn Schell at 3:36, Rebecca Johnson at 7:20, and Beatrice Harrietha at 8:13 of the second period ended Keri Martin's night as the Huskies were up 5-0, but we weren't done. Sarah Douglas added another goal for the Huskies before Kelsey MacDougall snapped Rebecca Clark's shutout at 17:54 to make it a 6-1 lead for Saint Mary's. Heather Richards made it 6-2 at 11:21, but Haylee Tretiak would score on the power-play for the Huskies at 13:36 as Saint Mary's wins this game by a 7-2 score. Clark picked up the win while Martin was assessed the loss. Lindsay Wray stopped 19 of 21 shots in relief.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER at DALHOUSIE: These two teams both recorded wins one day earlier, so who would take two wins into the December break? Kara Power put the X-Women out in front with a shorthanded tally at 4:03 of the second period, and Taylor Dale doubled that lead 6:05 when she beat Jessica Severeyns. Dalhousie would cut the lead in half when Tara Morning beat Pascale Daigle on the power-play at 13:07, but we were far from done with the scoring in the middle frame.

Daley Oddy added a third StFX goal at 15:31, and Schyler Campbell added a power-play goal with 18 seconds to play to put the X-Women out in front by a 4-1 score. Lisa MacLean would pull the Tigers within two with her goal at 13:46, but Kara Power would ice this game with her empty-netter at 19:49 to give StFX the 5-2 win. Daigle earned the win while Severeyns was on the losing end.

It's going to be a quiet edition of The Rundown next week with one lone game on the docket, so we're going to have a little fun next week. I'm going to post my CIS Top Ten because I'm not sure who is voting and/or watching these games, but I have some serious issues with the current Top Ten list. How the fourth-place team in Canada West is ranked while no other team is has me shaking my head.

In any case, like we did on the bye week, I'll highlight a couple of players who are having impressive seasons, open up the discussion on the Top Ten, and we'll look at that final AUS game before the December break!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
