CIS women's hockey Friday roundup
|MONCTON – Mariève Provost scored two

Kathy Desjardins made 23 saves for the Aigles Bleues. "Our second and third lines played well tonight," coach Denis Ross said. "The brief ceremony honouring Provost was hard on her and the first line took a while to get going. Our first goal gave us the energy needed to take control and take charge. We missed a few opportunities to score. We will have the same line-up for the game Saturday against Mount Allison."
The Aigles have taken over first place in the standings with a 7-2-1 record for 15 points. They host Mount Allison University Mounties Saturday at 7 pm. The Mounties lost 3-1 to Saint Thomas Friday.
In brief... the university presented a framed memento before the game to scoring sensation Mariève Provost who became the all time AUS scoring leader last week....

|WINNIPEG - In a dominating performance, the CIS
sixth-ranked Manitoba Bisons women's hockey team defeated the
unranked University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds 4-0 to
increase their Canada West conference winning streak to fifteen
Key contributions came early, as Bisons leading scorer Nellie Minshull recorded her seventh goal of the year at 8:30 to put Manitoba up 1-0 in the first period. The Bisons women tempered an early storm from the Thunderbirds as the UBC women came out of the gate flying, putting early shots on net, all turned aside by Tara Lacquette, recording her third shutout of the season. Key mistakes made early in the second period by UBC, including a player falling in the centre of the ice, losing the puck, and giving up the goal to Bison Addie Miles as they went down 3-0.
After a strong effort early, UBC had a hard time holding possession as Manitoba dominated the puck for most of the second and third periods. The Thunderbirds settled for dump-ins and quick shots, which Lacquette had no problem turning aside. Regardless, UBC played a relatively clean game, as the Bisons outnumbered them in penalties 5-4.
In the third period, Manitoba closed out the game with solid defense. UBC came out rejuvenated with more full-ice action as the puck went back and forth. However, lack of good shots for the Thunderbirds meant that they were unable to get back in the game with a four goal deficit going into the last period. Manitoba would outnumber the shots on goal for the game 26-17.
After the win, Bisons head coach Jon Rempel was pleased with his team's performance overall, but did find a few key points that can be improved on before Saturday's rematch between these two teams. "The third period, I feel like we sat back and got a little complacent," he said, "We really have to play the same way all the time."
With the win, the Bisons improve their record on the season to 7-3-1 and the Thunderbirds fall back to 4-6-1. Manitoba now jumps to a tie for first in the Canada West standings with Alberta and calgary.
The Bisons women will play the UBC Thunderbirds in a Saturday rematch, the game starting at 7 p.m. CT at the Max Bell Centre.
