Martlet Hockey

On Saturday, the no.1 CIS ranked McGill Martlets thoroughly dominated the Concordia Stingers en route to a 5-1 victory, extending their winning streak against their cross-town rivals to 54 straight victories. Fourth-year industrial relations major Katia Clement-Heydra was instrumental in McGill’s first four goals. Clement-Heydra set up Gabrielle Davidson and Chelsea Saunders for the opening two goals respectively, before adding one of her own and then assisting Leslie Oles on the fourth.

Sunday saw no halt in the Martlets’ excellence, as the team breezed past the Ottawa Gee Gees with a score of 5-2. Davidson scored twice, breaking the former RSEQ scoring record of 24 goals in only 17 games. McGill out-shot the Gee Gees 45-22 and goaltender Andrea Weckmen recorded a 20-save game as the Martlets extended their RSEQ winning streak to 43 games. Now McGill awaits the season results of Ottawa, Concordia, and Carleton to see who they will encounter in the first round of the conference playoffs.
