EDMONTON - Two goals in the first 16 minutes of play were the difference in a 2-0 decision in favour of the University of Calgary Dinos over the University of Alberta Pandas, Saturday afternoon at Foote Field in Edmonton.
Just after the opening minute ticked by, third-year midfielder Serena Lockhart got wide open at the side of the net, right after a penalty corner, for a short-range shot through the five-hole of Alberta netminder Tory Spencer.
In the 16th minute, fourth-year forward Kaitlyn Longworth was the recipient of a cross-crease pass that she put away for an easy tap-in goal, her second tally of the season.
The now 0-3 Pandas will try again for their first victory of the
season tomorrow in a rematch against the visiting 1-2 Dinos at 1:00
p.m. Mountain Time at Foote Field.

Toronto 3 Waterloo 2 Final
OTTAWA - Alexandra Evanshyn led the Varsity Blues field hockey team to a 3-2 victory over the Waterloo Warriors on Saturday, September 25 in Ottawa.
Down 2-1 with 25 minutes remaining, the Blues came from behind to pull out their fourth victory of the season.
Kaelan Watson of Richmond, B.C., opened the scoring when she blasted a shot on a penalty corner early in the game. A couple of Toronto errors would lead to two goals as the Warriors built a 2-1 lead at the half.
A first-year forward, Evanshyn (Burlington, Ont.) evened the score when she received a pass in the circle, dribbled through a defender and charged the goalie to slip it into the empty net. Evanshyn then made a great pass to second-year standout Natalie Provenzano of Richmond Hill, Ont., who put one past the Waterloo goaltender to complete the comeback win.
The Varsity Blues finish off their trip in Ottawa tomorrow with a game against the host Carleton Ravens at 10:30 a.m.
