UBC ENDS COUGARS' SEASON

REGINA, Sask. – The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds scored a 7-1 victory over the Regina Cougars on Sunday afternoon in the third and deciding game of a Canada West semifinal series at The Co-operators Centre.
 
The win completes a series comeback for UBC, which trailed 1-0 after losing 2-1 to the Cougars on Friday night. The Thunderbirds pulled out a triple-overtime victory on Saturday night before completing the comeback with Sunday's victory.

UBC will head to Calgary next weekend for the Canada West final and also earns an automatic berth to the 2013 CIS Championship in Toronto with the series victory.
 
UBC was 1-for-9 on the power play, while the Cougars were held scoreless on their three opportunities. UBC ended up outshooting the U of R by a 42-25 margin in the win.

That triple OT loss will take while to get over. That was a tough pill to swallow.

Very exciting crowd all weekend. It was loud in the gorgeous Co-operators Centre; the Cougars are starting to do a great job growing the Hockey program (both men and women); the entertainment and announcers are pretty good - I look forward to the future.

Great atmosphere Friday night at the Cooperators Centre. Almost forgot how fun playoff hockey is. Great season for the women. Will be great to see the men take another step next season and bring mens playoff hockey to Regina!
