SASKATOON — Shae-Lynn Dodds added to her team-leading goal total Saturday, but the Winnipeg Wesmen couldn't pull out a win on the road.
Dodds scored in the 80th minute — her team-leading fifth goal of the season — but the Saskatchewan Huskies scored three times in the first half on their way to a 6-1 Canada West conference victory.
The loss sent the Wesmen to a record of 1-6-0, while the Huskies improved to 4-2-1.
Dodds has now scored in three straight games and in four of Winnipeg's last five games. She is now tied for second in the Canada West for goals.
Head coach Amy Anderson said her team didn't respond to the challenge of playing on the road at a critical time of the season when the Wesmen are trying to stay in contention for a playoff spot.
"We played poorly today," Anderson said. "On a positive, we gave minutes to players that needed experience. As a team we are not happy with our performance and we will need to be better."
Freshman keeper Taryn Raabe made a career-high 12 saves facing 36 Saskatchewan shots and 18 on goal. Raabe is second in Canada West in saves this season with 57.
Payton Izsak (13th and 44th) and Jenelle Zapski (48th and 81st) had two goals apiece for the Huskies. Taneil Gay and Hannah Gannitsos-Clark had the other goals for the Huskies, coming in the 25th and 47th minutes, respectively.
Jadyn Steinhauer made three saves in the win.
The Wesmen now move to Regina for a clash with the Cougars Sunday afternoon.
