Force rebound with OT win over powerful Pride

MONTREAL — It didn’t take long for the Montreal Force to get rid of a bitter taste.

Following a 5-0 drubbing to the Boston Pride on Saturday afternoon, the Montreal Force rebounded Sunday with a 2-1 overtime victory at the Premier Tech Centre in Premier Hockey Federation action.

Taylor Baker opened the scoring for Montreal at 10:18 of the second period. Loren Gabel tied it 12 seconds into the third period, setting the stage for Jade Downie-Landry’s power-play winner at 4:02 of overtime. The Force snapped the Pride’s five-game winning streak.

With the exciting win, the Force moved to within two points of fourth-place Connecticut in the professional women’s hockey league. The Force returns to action Friday against the Connecticut Whale.


The Force’s Anne-Sophie Bettez, Catherine Daoust, Jade Downie Landry will be part of the Canadian team at the league’s all-star game weekend in Toronto, while Taylor Baker will join the international team.
