NAIT Wins Third Straight ACAC Title

The NAIT Ooks become the second team in conference history to win three straight titles. A decade has passed since the Mount Royal Cougars accomplished the feat. It's also the third championship in the team's history.

On Thursday, March 5th at Edmonton, Karli Reeve netted the winner with 40 seconds gone in the third as the NAIT Ooks edged the Red Deer Queens 2-1.

 

On Saturday, March 7th at Red Deer, powerplay goals by Casey Nicholson and Jena Holden gave the Queens a lead they never relinquished as they shaded the Ooks 3-2.

On Thursday, March 12th at the NAIT Arena in Edmonton, Haley Vandepoele netted the winner with 8:48 elapsed in the second overtime as NAIT nipped Red Deer 2-1.

On Saturday, March 14th at the Red Deer Arena in Red Deer, Sherri Bowles notched the go ahead goal with 6:59 gone in the third as the Ooks downed the Queens 2-1.

The two teams met six times previously in the post season with Red Deer winning the first two series and NAIT taking the last four series including last season's semi final match up.

In eight regular season meetings, each team won four games. The Ooks won two in regulation, one in overtime, and one in a shootout. The Queens won one in regulation and three in a shootout.

The Ooks entered the playoffs after posting the most wins in the team's history (18) en route to their highest winning percentage ever (.813).
