Big First Period Leads Canada Red to Win
July 27, 2007

Four goals – on 14 shots – in the first period was all Team Canada Red needed, as they topped Team Canada Black 4-1 at the National Women’s Under-19 Program Evaluation Camp on Friday night in Calgary.

Cassea Schols (Edmonton, AB) got Canada Red off on the right foot, her point shot finding its way past Canada Black goaltender Alexandra Garcia (Pointe Claire, QC) for a 1-0 lead just past the seven-minute mark of the opening period.

Canada Black got into penalty trouble near the midway point of the period, at one point finding themselves with four players in the penalty box.

The two-man advantage would prove to be a weapon for Canada Red, as Brittaney Maschmeyer (Bruderheim, AB) would score from the slot at 12:51, followed by a Bailey Bram (Ste-Anne, MB) goal just 66 seconds later to give her team a 3-0 lead. Both goals came with Canada Black two players short.

Maschmeyer rounded out the Canada Black’s nightmare period with just 1.2 seconds to go, snapping a shot past Garcia for her second of the period, giving Canada Red a 4-0 lead heading into the intermission.

As good as the Canada Red offence was in the opening 20 minutes, goaltender Hillary Pattenden (Surrey, BC) was just as good, making a number of spectacular saves to keep Canada Black off the scoresheet. Canada Black actually held an early shots on goal advantage at 7-2 before Schols’ opening goal.

Brianne Jenner (St. Catharines, ON) finally got her team on the board just short of the 12-minute mark of the second period, stripping the puck from a Canada Red defenseman and shoveling her own rebound past Pattenden, cutting the Canada Red lead to three at 4-1.

Despite peppering Pattenden with 15 shots in the final period, Canada Black could not find a way to push another puck past the Canada Red netminder. Pattenden turned aside 32 shots in total in picking up the victory.

Garcia rebounded from her first-period performance to stop all 17 shots she faced the rest of the way, albeit in a losing cause.

The win moves Canada Red to 1-1, while dropping Canada Black to the same mark. Both teams wrap up the round robin on Saturday – Canada Black takes on Canada White at 3:30 p.m., while Canada Red faces Japan at 7:30 p.m., both at Father David Bauer Arena.
