STACEY SCORES OT WINNER, BLACK BEATS WHITE AT DEVELOPMENT CAMP
CALGARY, Alta. – Laura Stacey (Kleinburg, Ont./Dartmouth University, ECAC) scored the game-winner 44 seconds into overtime to lead Black to a 5-4 victory over White on Thursday night at Canada’s National Women’s Development Team selection camp.
It’s the second intrasquad win in as many tries for Black at camp; it beat White 2-1 in Tuesday’s opener.
Sarah Lefort (Ormstown, Que./Boston University, HE) added a goal and an assist in regulation time for Black, which got points from 11 different players and won despite losing an early two-goal lead.
Emily Clark (Saskatoon, Sask./Okanagan Hockey Academy, JWHL), Christine Bestland (Brunkild, Man./Mercyhurst University, CHA) and Louise Warren (Orangeville, Ont./Boston University, HE) had the other goals for Black.
Kelly Terry (Whitby, Ont./University of Minnesota, WCHA), Nicole Kosta (Mississauga, Ont./Quinnipiac University, ECAC), Shannon MacAulay (Mount Herbert, P.E.I./Clarkson University, ECAC) and Gabrielle Davidson (Pointe-Claire, Que./McGill University, CIS) scored for White in a losing cause.
Terry, MacAulay and Kosta each finished with a goal and an assist for White, while Erin Ambrose (Keswick, Ont./Clarkson University, ECAC) added three helpers.
Black jumped out to the early lead when Clark and Lefort scored 36 seconds apart for a quick 2-0 lead before the eight-minute mark of the first period, but Terry, Kosta and MacAulay all scored before the end of the opening frame, capping off a wild 20 minutes and sending White to the intermission with a 3-2 lead.
Bestland tied the game for Black on an early second-period power play, the lone goal of the period.
Warren gave Black its first lead since early in the first period when she jammed home a loose puck in the White crease at 7:28 of the third period, but Doyle answered with a blast from the point on a White power play just 1:35 later, evening it up once again.
Stacey ended the festivities early in the extra frame, taking a pass from Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, Ont./Clarkson University, ECAC) and beating White goaltender Chloé Desjardins (Saint-Prosper, Que./Northeastern University, HE) for the winner.
Desjardins finished with 19 saves, while her Black counterpart, Jaimie Leonoff (Montreal, Que./Yale University, ECAC) made 14 stops to record the win.
Black will look to complete the intrasquad sweep on Saturday afternoon (2 p.m. MT) in the camp finale.
From the camp, 13 players will be selected to combine with the 27 players centralized with Canada’s National Women’s Team for a three-game series next week.
