Queen's wins longest college hockey tilt

GUELPH, Ontario -- Morgan McHaffie ended the longest game in college hockey history early Thursday, scoring in the sixth overtime to give Queen's a 2-1 victory over Guelph in a Canadian Interuniversity Sport women's playoff game.

McHaffie's goal 7:14 into the sixth extra period ended the game at 167 minutes, 14 seconds, including 107:14 of extra time. That's the longest game on record in CIS or NCAA hockey -- women's or men's.

The victory gave the Gaels a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three Ontario University Athletics final.

After battling for 60 minutes in regulation, Queen's and Guelph played a 10-minute overtime period, then four 20-minute extra frames before McHaffie ended it.

Guelph was 5 seconds away from victory in regulation after Tori Woods opened the scoring in the third period, but Becky Conroy tied the game in the dying seconds.

Queen's is 4-0 in the 2011 playoffs, all 2-1 victories that went to at least the second overtime.
