OTTAWA — Leslie Oles scored the game-winner with her ninth goal of the season and added an assist as the No.2-ranked McGill University women’s hockey team rallied for the third straight outing and doubled Carleton 4-2 at the CU Icehouse, Saturday afternoon.
The Martlets, who erased a 2-1 deficit with three unanswered goals in the final period, have now outscored RSEQ opponents by a 21-6 margin in the third stanza.
It marked McGill’s 17th consecutive victory over Carleton in regular-season matchups, dating back to a 4-3 overtime shootout loss on Jan. 22, 2012. The Martlets improved to 80-1-1 lifetime against Carleton, since the Ravens joined the Quebec conference in 1999.
McGill, which outshot Carleton 52-12, has yet to be outshot in their 11 regular season contests. The result put the Martlets into a first-place tie with the No.1-ranked Montreal Carabins. Both have identical 9-2-0 records and McGill has prevailed in two of four meetings with their cross-town rivals, including a preseason contest at the Queen’s tourney.
