After an eight-year absence from the post-season the Ontario Tech women’s hockey squad were hoping to savour their playoff return a little longer than one game.

The Queen’s Gaels had other ideas, however doubling up the Ridgebacks at the Campus Ice Centre in Oshawa to advance in the McCaw Cup playoffs.

Queen’s will play the University of Toronto this Saturday.

Ontario Tech alumna Sarah Worthington (09-14), who sits third all-time in points with 83 and had three points in the last playoff game in 2014 against Laurier, dropped the ceremonial first puck.

First year forward Lauren Beaulieu opened the scoring with a power play marker 12:21 into the second

But Queen’s responded with four straight goals to put the game out of reach. Mackenzie Krasowski scored late in the third to make the final score 4-2. Zoe McGee made 33 stops in the loss, while Makenzy Arsenault made 27 in the victory.

The Ridgebacks finished the season with a 5-11-3 record overall and a 5-5-1 conference record.
