The reigning ACAC leading scorer netted a hat-trick in leading the Griffins to a 3-0 win over cross-town rival NAIT on Saturday night. As a result, MacEwan remained undefeated in their new home at Edmonton’s Downtown Community Arena and became the first club to knock off NAIT this season. Pochapsky deflected in a Dominique Scheurer shot to open the scoring in the first period. Then she hustled onto a loose puck to create a breakaway and beat NAIT goalie Karlee Fetch low blocker side for her second tally in the third period. An empty-netter with 44 seconds left completed the hat-trick.
