Ooks win 3-1, sweep weekend series with Griffins

EDMONTON, Alta. - The NAIT Ooks women's hockey team defeated the MacEwan Griffins for a second straight night on Saturday night, as they defeated the Griffins 3-1.

After Jayme Doyle scored on rookie goaltender Ashley Smith in the first period, the NAIT Ooks would be the only team to find the scoresheet as Brittney Savard, and Julia Wing found the back of the net in the second period. Just like most matchups between these two teams, the game was a battle, which was pretty evenly matched. 

The game remained 2-1 late into the final period, resulting in the Griffins electing to pull their goalie to get an extra attacker in hopes of tying the game. That plan did not goes as planned as Ooks' Jordan MacMillan grabbed the puck in her end and raced the entire length of the ice, evading several Griffin defenders to score on the open net giving NAIT a 3-1 victory.
