RED CAPS U22 CAMP WITH SHUTOUT WIN OVER WHITE

CALGARY, Alta. – Canada Red won on the first day of the National Women’s Under-22 Team selection camp – it was only fitting it won on the last day too.

A first-period goal off the stick of Catherine White (Brampton, Ont./Cornell University, ECAC) stood up as the game-winner as Red topped Canada White 2-0 in the final game of camp on Friday afternoon at Father David Bauer Olympic Arena. Dominique Thibault (L’Orignal, Ont./University of Connecticut, Hockey East) had the game’s other goal, scoring into an empty net in the final minute.

The win for Red meant all three teams at camp split their four games – Red beat Sweden and White, White beat Sweden and Red, and Sweden beat Red and White during the six days of game action.

The defensive struggle mirrored Tuesday’s meeting between the two teams, when White scored a 2-1 shootout win. The two teams combined for 61 shots in that game, with a total of 53 directed at goaltenders Christina Kessler (Mississauga, Ont./Harvard University, ECAC) and Laura Hosier (Sharon, Ont./Brampton, CWHL) in Friday’s match-up.

Hosier was perfect, turning aside all 25 shots she faced, while Kessler made 27 saves. Overall, Kessler allowed just the one goal in 119 minutes of action at camp, while Hosier allowed three in her two games.

Red struck for the game’s opening goal just past the midway point of the opening frame, as White gathered in the rebound of a Karell Emard (Richalieu, Que./St. Lawrence University, ECAC) shot and poked it past a sprawling Kessler. That goal would stand up for the remaining 49 minutes thanks to a strong Red defence and shutout goaltending from Hosier.

Thibault wrapped up the scoring with 36 seconds to go, sliding the puck into the empty net.

The roster for Canada’s National Women’s Under-22 Team will be announced on Saturday morning, with the team facing off with Canada’s National Women’s Team in a three-game series next Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, all at Father David Bauer Olympic Arena.
