Moncton Player Breaks AUS Record; Eyes CIS Points Total
Marieve Provost made history over the weekend, and moved one step closer to setting a new CIS record, while her #10 Moncton Aigles Bleus lost both of their games. Despite falling to the #3 St. FX X-Women by a 6-3 final, Provost was able to score and move her career goals total to 106, a new Atlantic University Sport record.
Though she will miss four games while in Turkey for the Winter Universiade, Provost has a total of six games she is expected to play in before the season is out to pick up six points and pass Tarin Adolski of Alberta for the most career points by a female hockey player. Adolski had 91 goals and 122 assists for 213 points over her five year career.
In the other game for Moncton over the weekend, Provost was able to pick up just a lone assist in another losing effort, this time to the St. Mary's Huskies. The Huskies scored four unanswered to come back and beat Moncton by a 6-5 final.
Elsewhere Around the Top 10
The #1 McGill Martlets continued on their great season as they returned to regular season action last week, knocking off Ottawa by a 5-1 tally before shutting out the Concordia Stingers 3-0, to give Charline Labonte her fourth shutout of the season.
The break did nothing to hamper the #2 Laurier Golden Hawks who scored 13 goals and allowed just 2 in their two games over the weekend. Laurier downed the UOIT Ridgebacks by a 5-1 total, before a two-goal performance by Laura Brooker helped lift the Hawks over the Queen's Golden Gaels in an 8-1 blowout. Liz Knox allowed the only goal of that game with just three seconds left in the game as her and Labonte continue to battle for the CIS record of career shutouts.
After knocking off Moncton in their first game, the #3 St. FX X-Women earned a close victory over St. Thomas in their second game of the weekend. Marilynn Hay scored twice for the X-Women to help push them past the Tommies by a final of 5-4.
The #5 Alberta Pandas had a solid weekend, picking up two victories on the road against the UBC Thunderbirds. The Pandas took the first game by a final of 3-0, while doubling their goals for the second game in a 6-1 thrashing which saw Jennifer Jubb score twice.
The #6 Brock Badgers fell to an unranked Toronto Varsity Blues team over the weekend, as Toronto notched back-to-back markers in the third to win 4-3, despite a three point performance by Kelly Walker. In their other game, Brock was able to knock off the York Lions by a 3-1 score.
The #7 Calgary Dinos only got one of their two games in against the Lethbridge Hurricanes, in a 4-1 winning effort that again saw Hayley Wickenheiser score. The other game scheduled between the two teams was postponed due to weather and will be rescheduled later this season.
Toronto's luck was not enough to lift them past the #8 Guelph Gryphons, though, as Tamara Bell scored twice for Guelph in a 5-1 victory. Guelph then went on to dump the York Lions by a 5-0 score in their second game of the weekend.
Courtney Spoors was the hero for the #9 Windsor Lancers this weekend as her third-period power-play marker ended up being just enough to propel the Lancers over the Western Mustangs in a 5-4 game.
