Queen Bees v Kingston Diamonds
By Samantha Bonathan
QB bags another 2 points.
This is the third time we took to the ice against the Diamonds for the 2015-16 season. Queen Bees iced three lines to Diamonds two lines.
Nothing major happened in the game until #23 Adams picked up a penalty for Body Checking at 14.23. The Diamonds tried to use this to their advantage but Queen Bees kept them to zero. In the last minute #11 picked the puck up to place it into the net scoring an unassisted goal at 19.23.
In the second period at 22.05 #11 Cornford made a pass #63 Ashton who broke out and scored Diamonds first goal at 22.05. Our youngest player #40 Beresford picked up a 2+10 at 30.02 for Checking, Queen Bees dominated this two minutes even though we were short handed. At 36.31 #11 shot the puck off the blue line and one of the Diamonds Defence tried to stop it with their stick but deflected it through #20 Wallaces five hole, bagging the Queen Bees another goal to put us back in the lead.
On fresh ice and only 1 goal in it the third period was underway. 45 minutes into the game #27 Overton picked up a 2 minute for hooking and this was the Diamonds chance to get it back, they piled their players on the goal but with strong defence from #2 Lamb and #7 Highgate along with #35 Bonathan, the Diamonds couldn't get the goal they needed. Queen Bees were soon back to full strength and #8 Lossnitzer played the puck to #11 Newman who got her hatrick in the game.
#10 Scoon for the Diamonds made a hit on #11 Newman 48.52 which took Newman out for the rest of the game and Scoon sat for 2 minutes.
End score Queen Bees win 3-1
