Queen’s women prep for first-place showdown with win at Brock

February 1, 2014

Queen’s Golden Gaels gave up two goals Friday night but they didn’t take long getting either one of them back, as they defeated the Brock Badgers 3-2 in an Ontario University Athletics women’s hockey game in St. Catharines.

After Shawna Griffin opened scoring for the No. 5-ranked Gaels in the game’s third minute, Brock tied the score with a power-play goal at 15:02. It took just 33 seconds for Queen’s to answer that one and the period ended with the Gaels leading 2-1.

After Brittney Cabral tied the game midway through the second period with her first goal of the year, it took Morgan McHaffie just four minutes to restore the one-goal lead that Queen’s would nurse to the end of the game.

Brock, 8-13-1, outshot Queen’s 9-5 in a scoreless third period.

Rookie Nadia Larocca scored the other goal for Queen’s, her fifth of the year but her second in three games.

Caitlin Lahonen made 22 saves for the goaltending win.

The win allowed Queen’s, 15-2-4, to stay within two points of league-leading Guelph, which was idle Friday. The Gaels can erase that deficit when they visit the No. 3-ranked Gryphons, 18-3-0, Saturday afternoon.
