The streaking AAA Midget Calgary Buffaloes took a break from their demanding season schedule to battle the Women’s National Hockey Team Thursday night at Father David Bauer Arena. It was the second time the two teams have met this year, as the women defeated the Buffs 4-3 in overtime back in October. Last night the Buffaloes got their revenge by returning the favour and beating the women by that same 4-3 count. The Buffs jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and held on the rest of the way. But before the first period ended the women had scored twice to get back into the game, including a goal from women’s hockey legend Hayley Wickenheiser. 

The two teams exchanged second period goals and went scoreless in the third. Buffs’ captain Brett Pinder led the way offensively scoring once and adding a helper.  Goaltender Richie Hubbell got the nod between the pipes, making 21 saves.

Buffs’ head coach James Poole says his team showed great poise jumping out to the early lead, and did well holding on, despite letting the women’s team back into the game. On the women’s side, head coach Melody Davidson feels that her team is on the right track, and games like this are helping them prepare for the Olympics.

The women’s team will now shift their focus to a game with Red Deer on Tuesday night. As for the Buffs, they will head up north for to games in Lloydminster and Edmonton.

    Is it possible to get a copy of the video of the Buff’s win over the women’s national team? My son is in the video and has a few seconds of “fame” in it.

    Thank you
