Downie-Landry scores winner as hockey Martlets neutralize Stingers


MONTREAL -- Jade Downie-Landry of St. Jean sur Richelieu, Que.,  scored the game-winner as No.4 McGill edged fifth-ranked Concordia 3-2 in RSEQ women's hockey at the Ed Meagher Arena, Saturday afternoon.
 
McGill improved their head-to-head record against the Stingers to 84-43-3 in 130 meetings since 1997, when women's hockey was formally sanctioned with a national championship.
 
Both teams had 35 shots on net, with Concordia dominating the third period with a 17-8 margin.
 
Emilia Cotter, a senior defenceman from Toronto, Ont., opened the scoring at 5:11 of the first period. It was the first goal by a McGill rearguard this season, as forwards have accounted for 27 of the team's 28 goals.

Concordia forward Marie-Pascale Bernier knotted the score at the nine-minute mark. Just 125 seconds later, Laura Jardin, a 5-foot-6 engineering freshman from Calgary, Alta., put the Martlets up 2-1 at 11:05.

Downie-Landry made it 3-1 at 3:47 of the second period.  The 5-foot-9 psychology junior now leads the league in scoring with a 4-9-13 record in 10 games.

Concordia's Sophie Gagnon narrowed the gap to 3-2 at 2:26 of the final stanza.

Junior goaltenderTricia Deguire of Sherbrooke, Que., saved 33 shots for the victory between the pipes, improving to 8-2 on the season. The 5-foot-10 netminder continues to lead the league with a .961 save percentage in addition to leading in wins (8), goals-against average (1.09) and shutouts (4).
 
Stingers netminder Alice Philbert kicked aside 32 shots faced in a losing cause as her record fell to 5-5.
 
McGill was 0-for-2 on the power play and killed off all three penalties taken. They enter the exam break with a sluggish 12.3 per cent success rate on the PP (8/65) but a stellar 89.4 rate on the PK (51/57).

The Martlets wrap up the semester with an 8-2-0 record and sit tied with first-place Montreal (8-2-0). McGill now has a three-week break before playing their annual exhibition match against the Lac St. Louis Tigers, a boys midget espoir team, on Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 2 p.m. at McConnell Arena. They resume league play on Jan. 12 against the Stingers at the Ed Meagher Arena.
