The fourth-seeded UCC Lancers girl’s hockey team is finding the competition tough, and your seed in pool play means little.

The Lancers had a win in their morning game on Tuesday, defeating 15th seed Malvern 3-2, but fell in the afternoon to ninth seed Oakville 6-4.

In their first game against Malvern, the Lancers had a pair of goals from Natalie Bray and a single from Abby Stonehouse.

The Lancers led 2-1 after one, and 3-2 after the second, with no scoring in the third period. Amber Parent was the winning goaltender.

In the second game of pool play, Oakville proved to be a little more than the Lancers could handle.

Bray led the Lancers notching a hat trick, while Lucie Maine scored a single marker.

The teams played to a 3-3 tie after the first period, with Oakville scoring a pair of unanswered goals in the second to start the third up 5-3. Oakville added another in the final frame before the Lancers scored on a powerplay with less than a minute left in the game.

Parent had to take the loss between the pipes.

The Lancers need a win in their final pool play game against Banting Memorial on Wednesday in Lakeshore.
