The Concordia womens hockey team is on a roll, thanks to a perfect
trip to the nations capital last weekend. Wins over Carleton (4-1)
and Ottawa (6-3) have given the Stingers an excellent chance of finishing
in first place at seasons end. Concordia is currently in second
spot, one point behind McGill and a point ahead of third-place Ottawa.
Things are coming around for us now, said Stingers head coach
Les Lawton. A win (Jan. 24) against Rivers [Trois-Rivières]
and well be in top spot ahead of Ottawa and McGill.
Anouk Grignon-LAnglais, a third-year journalism student, led the
way last weekend with three goals and two assists in the two games. Number
one goaltender Jessica Anderson was the winner in the Ottawa game, while
Lori Posluns picked up the victory against Carelton.
The Stingers also captured a much-needed victory by defeating the McGill
Martlets 4-2 recently at the Ed Meagher Arena.
McGill, Concordia and Ottawa are all ranked in the Canadian interuniversity
sports top 10 list.
After the Jan. 24 match, the Stingers have four games remaining in the
schedule, including a game at McGill on Jan. 30 and a home game against
Ottawa on Feb. 10.
Lady hoopsters win
It was a good news, bad news situation when Concordias intercollegiate
basketball teams hosted McGill last Sunday afternoon at Concordia Gym.
The women improved to 2-4 with an impressive 87-57 win over the Martlets,
while the men lost their sixth game in a row, 92-86 to the Redmen.
The McGill men, the fifth-ranked team in Canada, improved its record to
6-0 with the win.
Gavin Musgrave led the Stingers with 20 points. Rastco Popovic and James
Aubourg scored 18 apiece.
In womens action, Kristina Steinfort had 18 points and eight rebounds
to pace Concordia. Point-guard Marie-Pier Veilleux scored 15 points.
