REGINA - Kyra Greig scored in the second period and Alicia Anderson made 27 saves as the visiting Lethbridge Pronghorns topped the University of Regina women's hockey team 1-0 at The Co-operators Centre on Friday night.

The deciding goal was a powerplay marker just over three minutes into the second period, as Greig slapped a one timer past the pad of Morgan Baker. Jodi Gentile and Katelyn Breitkreuz picked up assists on Greig's second goal of the season.

Anderson took care of the rest for the Pronghorns, with a spectacular performance in goal to pick up her league-leading fifth shutout of the season. Baker made 15 saves between the pipes for the Cougars, ten of which came in the first period.

The Cougars had a powerplay chance late in the second and two more early in the third, but the Pronghorn kill was solid as the home team finished the night 0-for-5 with the advantage. Jaycee Magwood had five shots on goal, while Emma Waldenberger registered four. Jordan Kulbida and Ireland South chipped in with three apiece, but Anderson stole the show.

Lethbridge improves to 5-10-0-2 with Friday's win, while Regina dips to 6-7-1-3.

The two teams will battle again on Saturday afternoon, with puck drop scheduled for 3 p.m. at The Co-operators Centre.
