The ACC Cougars celebrate a first-period goal in their opening game of provincials Friday at Kinsmen Arena.

The Assiniboine Community College Cougars women’s hockey team started the provincial Senior B women’s hockey championship on the right foot Friday night.

The Cougars scored three unanswered goals at Kinsmen Arena as they opened the tournament with a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Aces.

"It was a great start for us," said Lauren Williams, who scored the first goal for the Cougars. "We really needed to get this win out of the way and get our feet moving

"Just our relentlessness on our forecheck (was key). We got in there and pressured them hard and coughed up the puck a couple times and lucky for us they ended up in the back of the net."

Williams and Ellyn Polk scored in the second period, while Brittney Phillips added the insurance marker in the third for ACC, which will close out its round-robin schedule today against the Brandon Bandits at 9 a.m. Kayla Chomokovski scored in the opening frame for the Aces, who will face the Bandits at 12:30 p.m.

In Friday’s other Senior B game, Jill Fast scored the lone goal for the Winnipeg Devils as they edged the Minnedosa Wild 1-0. Nicole Klassen earned the shutout for the Devils, who will close out the round robin against the Rage II today at 1 p.m. Minnedosa plays the Rage II at 9:30 a.m.

The top two teams from each three-team pool advance to Sunday’s semifinals. The final is set for Sunday at 2:30 p.m., at Kinsmen Arena. Williams hopes Friday’s game starts the ball rolling for the Cougars on their way to a provincial title.

"You always want to start with a win for the weekend and hopefully we can just get better from here and keep moving up and get three more wins and come out with a championship," she said.

The Senior A game between the Herd and Blazing Stars was in progress at press time. The Senior A round robin continues today and tomorrow, with the final slated for Sunday at 2 p.m., at Optimist Arena.
