December 1, 2012, Calgary, AB (ISN) – Danny Stone scored twice Friday to lead the University of Saskatchewan Huskies to a 5-2 road win over the Mount Royal University Cougars in Canada West women’s hockey.
Cami Wooster, Cara Wooster and Sara Greschner also scored for the Huskies (5-6-4).
Saskatchewan moved into a share of sixth place with the Cougars; both are one point up on the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, who lost 3-1 to the University of Calgary Dinos on Friday.
Tanika Dawson and Emily Harrison replied for the Cougars, who fall to 6-7-2. The Cougars and Huskies both have 14 points heading into another clash Saturday at Flames Community Arenas at 7 p.m.
The top six teams will make the playoffs when the regular season wraps up in early February.
The Cougars have dropped three straight games and continue to have trouble on their home ice. They are now 1-5-1 in their white uniforms.
“We got away from our game plan and for whatever reason didn’t execute the way we are supposed to,” Cougars head coach Scott Rivett said. “The kids understand that and recognize that and I’m sure we’ll get a better effort and more consistent execution (on Saturday.).”
The Huskies scored on two of their six shots in the first period. Cami Wooster made a couple nice moves in the neutral zone and beat Kendall Kilgour with a wrist shot off the right post from the high slot at 12:03.
Stone blasted a shot past Kilgour on a power play from the top of the right faceoff circle at 15:37.
Greschner put a wrist shot past Kilgour with 1:04 remaining in the period.
Kilgour was replaced by Jess Ross for the third period. Cara Wooster roofed a shot under the crossbar at 5:20, Harrison converted a rebound for the Cougars at 6:50, Stone found the top corner at 9:40 and Dawson finished the scoring on the power play with 8:51 remaining.
Cassidy Hendricks made 19 saves in the Huskies goal.
