Horns rally over Di­nos in dou­ble OT


A lit­tle come­back hockey earned the Uni­ver­sity of Leth­bridge Pronghorns women’s hockey team a home ice Fri­day night.

The Horns de­feated the Cal­gary Di­nos 4-3 in dou­ble over­time in Canada West play at Ni­cholas Sheran Arena to im­prove to 6-11-1-1.

Trail­ing 2-0 after the second pe­riod, the Horns struck for three goals in the third pe­riod — in­clud­ing two in the fi­nal 1:33 — be­fore lead­ing scorer Tricia Van Vaeren­bergh com­pleted the come­back in dou­ble over­time.

On the men’s side, the Pronghorns were held goal­less and win­less, fall­ing 5-0 to the Di­nos in Cal­gary after a 2-0 loss Thurs­day night at the En­max Cen­tre.

In the women’s game, Kate­lyn Bre­itkreuz scored 1:38 into the third pe­riod to pull the Horns within one be­fore the Di­nos went back up by two a lit­tle un­der five min­utes later.

But in the fi­nal 1:33 Jodi Gen­tile and Jordan Do­ram scored 22 sec­onds apart to force over­time.

After the first over­time failed to pro­duce a win­ner, Van Vaeren­bergh net­ted the win­ner in the second ex­tra frame.

Bre­itkreuz and Do­ram each had an as­sist for a two-point night, while goal­tender Ali­cia An­der­son made 40 saves in the win.

The win keeps the Pronghorns in sev­enth place in the Canada West, five points back of the Mount Royal Uni­ver­sity Cougars.

The teams are in Cal­gary tonight to close out the week­end at 6 p.m.

In the men’s game Fri­day in Cal­gary, the Di­nos scored once in the first and twice in the second and third on their way to the win as the Pronghorns fall to 7-11-2-0.

The Di­nos out­shot the Pronghorns 3916 as Pronghorns goal­tender Gar­ret Hugh­son made 34 saves.

The Pronghorns re­main in the six­t­hand-fi­nal play­off spot in the Canada West, eight points up on the Man­i­toba Bisons and five back of the UBC Thun­der­birds.
