Meghan Agosta, Courtney Birchard, Laura Fortino, Caroline Ouellette and Marie-Philip Poulin all added
markers to the scoreboard in Friday’s semifinal against Finland, helping earn Canada a berth in the gold
medal game at worlds in Burlington.
Sixteen different players contributed to the scoreboard, forward Natalie Spooner had a hat trick, and
rookie Lauriane Rougeau notched her first international goal in Canada’s 14-1 win over Russia at women’s
worlds Tuesday in Burlington.
Laura Fortino scored in the first, Caroline Ouellette added another in the second, and Gillian Apps topped
it off in the third to help Canada edge Finland 3-2, for the red and white’s first win at the women’s world
championship in Burlington, Vt.
Five goals in the first six minutes sealed Canada’s fate Saturday night against the U.S., but a tough loss
is a lesson learned for the red and white, who look to turn things around quickly in Burlington, starting
with Game 2 on Sunday against Finland.
