SACKVILLE, N.B. – Mount Allison Hockey Mounties’ goalie Kate O’Brien is this week’s Joey’s Pizza Athlete of the Week.

O’Brien and her hockey teammates took Moncton to three games in the inaugural Subway AUS women’s hockey best-of-three championship series before losing 2-0 on Saturday night. 

O’Brien, a third-year goalie from Greenwood, played all three games of the final series and was very strong in goal to backstop the Mounties.

O’Brien also was instrumental in series wins for the Mounties over St. Thomas (quarterfinals) and St. F.X. (semifinals).

In the finals, O’Brien and the Mounties lost game one by a score of 2-1 in Moncton. 

The Mounties actually scored as time expired, but the goal was judged to have gone in just after the buzzer. 

In Game 2, the Mounties fell down 2-0 early but then delighted the hometown crowd by roaring back to win 3-2 in overtime. 

During the game, O’Brien made many key saves to preserve the win for the Mounties. 

On Saturday, O’Brien was once again very steady in the Mounties net as the Mounties eventually fell 2-0.
