A rash of penalties prevented Ryerson’s hockey team from upsetting Canada’s no. 2-ranked team.
Against the Universite du Quebec a Trois Riveres Patriotes, at St. Michael’s Arena, Saturday, Nov. 18, the Rams trailed 1-0 with 10 minutes to play.
But with Ryerson defenders tired from having to kill more than 10 power plays throughout the game, the Patriotes scored three late goals, putting the game out of reach. Goaltender Steve Bewley made 64 saves in the 4-0 loss.
The loss lowered the Rams’ regular-season record to 1-8 and improved UQTR’s record to 10-0.
The previous night Ryerson lost 5-2 to the Concordia University Stingers. Mo Alvarez and Ryan Love scored the Rams’ goals.
This weekend Ryerson heads east for games at McGill University on Friday and the University of Ottawa on Saturday.
