Three players scored goals, eight players registered points and Team Canada White remained perfect at the National Women’s Under-19 Program Evaluation Camp with a 3-0 win over Japan on Friday afternoon.

Kathleen McDonald (Kamloops, BC), Kelsey O’Donnell (Souris, PE) and Jennifer Wakefield (Pickering, ON) scored for Canada White, who outshot the Japanese 26-8 in the win.

McDonald got the Canadians on the board early, her shot from the side of the net finding its way past Japanese goaltender Nana Fujimoto for a 1-0 lead not even four minutes into the game. O’Donnell and Lauriane Rougeau (Beaconsfield, QC) picked up the assists on McDonald’s powerplay marker.

Japan did a good job holding Canada White to just seven shots in the period, blocking a number of shots, both from the point and around the net.

The 16-year-old Fujimoto and her defense were the story of the middle frame, as the Japanese goaltender turned aside every shot she faced and the blueliners blocked a number more. Canada White outshot the visitors from the Far East 12-4 in the period but could not add to their one-goal lead.

O’Donnell finally got another puck past Fujimoto just 37 seconds into the third period, taking a pass from Vicki Bendus (Wasaga Beach, ON) and beating the Japanese netminder. Bendus picked up her third point in two games, while Chelsea Karpenko (Winnipeg, MB) picked up the other helper.

Wakefield was finally rewarded for her game’s worth of hard work, stepping around Fujimoto and sliding the puck into the open goal to round out the scoring with just over four minutes to go.

Goaltender Kayley Herman (Weyburn, SK) needed to make just eight saves – none over the final 20 minutes – to pick up the shutout in the Canada White goal.

Japan wraps up the round robin on Saturday night when they take on Canada Red at 7:30 p.m., while Canada White meets Canada Black in the final round robin game for both at 3:30 p.m. Both games will go at Father David Bauer Arena.
