Three goals in the second lead the Cochrane Chaos to a comeback win against the south division-leading Calgary Titans in Alberta Junior Female Hockey League (AJFHL) action last night.

The Chaos fell behind 3-1 after one but rallied with three goals in the second to win 4-3. Audrey Buston scored the winner with a one-timer on a 2-1.

“I think once we started to use our speed we started to outchance them 10-1,” says head coach Derek Loomer. “We came out a little flat in the first period but once we started to settle down we pretty much took over the game.”

The Chaos effectively used their speed and size to control much of the game and aggressive in-your-face penalty kills erased many opportunities for the Titans in the second and third period.

“Players are hoping you’re going to sit back and they’ll have all the time in the world to do what they want and get in position,” says Loomer. “If you put the pressure on them they tend to mess it up.”

After a few bad bounces in the first, goalie Jenna Weseen shut down the Titans with several key saves in the second and third.

Also scoring for the Chaos were Kari Pedder, Faith Gette and Callie Cummins.

Shots on goal were 32-30 in favour of the Chaos

The Chaos are on a three-game winning streak and have been climbing up the standings since returning from their second and final northern swing to the Edmonton area. The race for first is heating up with the Chaos chipping away at the early lead by the Titans, whom they’ve dominated in their last two meetings. The Central Alberta Amazons are hot on the track of the Chaos.

Tonight, Sat. Dec. 1, are home against the Lethbridge Eagles. The puck drops at 7 p.m. at the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre.
