Redmen and Martlet hockey teams continue to dominate the competition

Both of McGill’s hockey teams’ incredible seasons continued this past weekend. The Martlets kept their undefeated season alive with two wins. They dominated the University of Montreal in a 4-0 win as Charline Labonté posted her third consecutive shutout. The Martlets jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first period and never looked back.

The next night, Ann-Sophie Bettez scored two shootout goals as the top ranked Martlets squeaked out a 2-1 shootout win over Carleton. Despite out-shooting Carleton 27-17, the Martlets needed a third period goal from Carly Hill to tie the game and force extra time. Overtime ended scoreless and Bettez and Labonté carried McGill to victory in the shootout.

Labonté now has a 7-0-0 record with an impressive 0.70 GAA, 0.955 SV percentage and four shutouts. The wins extended McGill’s QUHL winning streak to a dominant 90 consecutive games.

The Redmen had only one game scheduled this weekend. McGill returned home, to McConnell Arena, after they suffered their first loss of the season against Brock last weekend. Captain Evan Vossen scored 1:27 into overtime to give the Redmen a hard fought 5-4 victory against the University of Guelph Gryphons.

Hubert Genest scored his second goal of the game 2:32 into the third period to give McGill a lead 4-2. However, they were unable to hold off the Gryphon who scored two consecutive goals to force OT. Depsite the collapse, the Redmen kept their composure as Vossen scored the game winner, his ninth of the year.

It was an extremely even game in which McGill was outshot 27-26. The Redmen had their opportunities to put the game out of reach in regulation as they had nine powerplays, however, they were only able to score twice with the man advantage.

McGill sniper Francis Verreault-Paul scored his 21st goal of the season. He is having a year for the record books.

The third ranked Redmen look to build on their momentum when they play UQTR on December 1 while the Martlets will try to extend their conference winning streak when they face off agianst Concordia on December 4.
