Hockey: Martlets fly just a little higher than a Herron

Enough was enough for Rebecca Martindale and McGill.

The Martlets made it 85 wins in a row with a 2-1 overtime win over Montreal at the CIS women's hockey championship, meaning they have a day to rest up for Saint Mary's on Sunday. Martindale, the Kingston native, got the decider 3:17 into overtime, redirecting a pass from Jordanna Peroff. It was fitting it was Martindale, since she had almost ended it a couple minutes when she beaned Carabins 'tender Catherine Herron with a point-blank shot off the top of the mask.

It kind of was a so-close-yet-so-far reaction with Montreal extending their city rival to overtime. The Carabins were outshot 41-10 and had only four shots on goal in the final 40-plus minutes. Granted, people this is a first-year program playing catch-up to a juggernaut, so taking it to OT is no easy task. Montreal almost managed to get Kim Deschenes sprung for a breakaway in the overtime, but Cathy Chartrand intercepted the pass. A couple minutes later, Chartrand started the play for the winning goal.
