(WINDSOR, ON) – The Lancers women’s hockey club were edged 2-1 in overtime at Varsity Arena in Toronto as the Blues eliminated Windsor from the post season. Following on the heels of a 3-2 loss in Windsor just two nights earlier, the Lancers will now bid farewell to graduating seniors Adalena Tridico, Candice Chevalier, Candace Kourounis, Kayla Dodson, Jenny MacKnight, and Bree Polci and set their sights on next year.
After a scoreless 1st period, Toronto’s Stacey Oue notched a power-play marker at 17:44 of the 2nd, with Taylor Shepherd in the box for slashing. Half way through the 3rd, Larissa Borowiec and captain Kayla Dodson set up Candace Kourounis for an even strength goal, and then hung on to send the game into extra time.
The teams played just 4 minutes of overtime until Taylor Day scored the winner to send the Varsity Blues through to the next round.
Marissa Kozovski stopped 18 of 20 shots she faced, in the losing effort for Windsor.
