Bantam AA Queens Tie Two to Two Again!
QUEBEC CITY, QC — The Bantam AA Queens tied both of their first games 2-2 at the Quebec City "Tournoi De Hockey Feminin De Quebec” and looked for their first win on Saturday against Étoiles Laurentides-Lanaudiére. Queens jump out to an early 1-0 lead with Avery Olenik banging home a Rhae Thomas rebound. Less then a minute later, Riah Compardo snapped in pass off of the faceoff from Katy Lacosse to add to the lead. The Queens would generate a number of great scoring opportunities throughout the rest of the period but couldn’t capitalize. Halfway through the second, Étoiles would get to within one and two minutes later, they would tie the game at 2-2. There would be no scoring the rest of the way as the Queens, for the third straight game, finished with a 2-2 tie. Presley Brohm stopped 16 shots while the Queens had 24 shots on Étoiles.
With a win being their only path to the semifinals, the Queens needed a win against Durham West Lightning. The game went scoreless through the first. Durham would take a 1-0 lead in the second, which was the only goal of the period. In the third, the Queens pushed for the equalizer but couldn’t find the back of the net, losing 1-0.
