Stingers are golden in RSEQ women's hockey championship

The Concordia Stingers defeated the Montréal Carabins 4-1 to win the third-and-deciding game in the RSEQ women's hockey championship series before a large, boisterous crowd at the Ed Meagher Arena on Sunday afternoon.

It is the second consecutive conference title for head coach Julie Chu and the Stingers. It is the 20th banner in the history of the Concordia program.

The Stingers were in control early in the game, getting goals from Alexandra Boulanger and Caroline Moquin Joubert to take a 2-0 lead into the locker room after the first 20 minutes. They also outshot the Carabins 14-6.

Concordia had to kill off two early five-on-three power plays in the second period, but then settled down to play a solid final 15 minutes. The teams were evenly matched until Montréal’s Joannie Garland snuck one past Stinger goaltender Alice Philbert with 2:40 left to play, making the score 2-1.

Midway through the final frame, Rosalie Bégin-Cyr beat Carabins goalie Aube Racine to give Concordia a big boost. Moquin Joubert scored her second of the game into the empty net to lock up the Stingers' win.

Final shots on goal were 28-24 for Concordia.

Both the Stingers and the Carabins will have berths in the eight-team U Sports national championship hosted by Université de Montréal March 16-19. As Quebec champions Concordia will go into the tournament seeded in one of the top four spots. Montréal will be assigned one of the bottom four spots.
