The Dinos women's hockey team had a chance to finish the semester off strong Dec. 1-2. They had two shots at dethroning the Red Deer College Queens.
With the home ice advantage, the Queens were able to steal a win from the Dinos on Thursday. The hard fought game ended in a 4-2 Dinos loss. On the upside, with a total of 13 goals in 12 games, it was exciting to see some scoring from the team.
After a strong effort on Thursday, the Dinos had a chance to carry some momentum into their home game on Friday. Unfortunately, this was not the case and the team suffered a huge 6-0 loss.
With the season now more than half over, it is impossible for the winless Dinos to finish their season with an even record. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the team. Because all teams make playoffs this year, hopefully the Dinos will be able to get their game together. This will require a change in their game plan as things do not seem to be working for the team right now.
The Dinos return to the ice Jan. 13-14 in an away-home series against the Grant MacEwan College Griffins. They play at 7 p.m. in the Olympic Oval Sat., Jan. 14.
