LETHAL POWERPLAY LEADS QUEBEC TO VICTORY
Penalties were the downfall of British Columbia on Wednesday morning, as Quebec connected three times on
the powerplay on their way to a 6-2 win in the opening game of the 2007 National Women’s Under-18
Championship in Kitchener.
Audrey Bélanger-Cournoyer scored four goals for Quebec (1-0) – two coming with the man advantage – and
picked up her team’s Player of the Game honour. Marie-Philip Poulin picked up four assists in the win, while
Lauriane Rougeau and Ariane Barker added two helpers apiece.
Leslie Oles and Mélodie Daoust also scored for Quebec, who finished 3-for-8 with the man advantage. They
will next face Ontario Blue on Thursday night (7:00 p.m. ET).
Kaleigh Fratkin and Alisa Baumgartner scored for British Columbia (0-1), who were outshot 46-20 in the
loss. Goaltender Rosanne Wallace, who made 40 saves, was named Player of the Game for B.C., who face Team
Atlantic on Thursday morning (10:00 a.m. ET)
