Jones settled in with SAIT

A Nelson hockey player scored her first goal with the SAIT Trojans on Saturday.

Nelson’s Michelle Jones scored her first Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference goal on Saturday night, but her SAIT Trojans couldn’t top cross-Calgary rival Mount Royal University Cougars.

Jones, who played for the Kootenay Midget Wildcats is in her first season at the Calgary technical school where she is taking hospitality management.

Jones scored SAIT’s first goal of the game Saturday night, but a third period collapse saw the Trojans lose 5-3 to the Cougars.

Salmo’s Lindsey Audia is also on the Trojans roster, playing in her second season with SAIT. Audia and Jones were teammates with the Wildcats.

The Trojans opened the season on Friday with a 1-0 win over the same Cougars.

SAIT’s next game is this Thursday against the Red Deer College Queens.
