Red Deer, AB – RDC Queens forward Camryn Wallan was one of the difference makers Friday evening against the visiting SAIT Trojans. The third-year Bachelor of Education Elementary student scored on the power play and the game-winning goal, helping her team finalize a 4-3 decision.

Before the end of the middle frame, the Trojans started to chip away at the lead. Within a four minute span, Davina McLeod and Aislynn Nachtegaele found room behind Queens goalkeeper Madison Fox, bringing their squad within one. 

Karlee Fetch took over in the Queens' net for the final 20 minutes. 

At 14:54 of the third, Tashel Scantlebury evened the contest 3-3, but the home team persisted. Camryn Wallan scored her second of the contest with 3:39 remaining, and that tally held up as the game-winner. Neisha Germann recorded the lone assist.
