The Assiniboine Community College Cougars have reached the final four at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division 2 women’s national championship tournament in Marlborough, Mass.

They finished first in Pool C with a 3-0 record after cruising to a 7-0 win over the Adrian College (Mich.) Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon.

It was another impressive performance by the two-time defending national champions, who have found the net 22 times in three games and have yet to give up a goal.

“That’s likely not going to last, but it’s been a total team effort from the girls so far,” Cougars head coach Tony Bertone said.
