2009 National Women's Under-18 Championship

Saskatchewan  4 -  British Columbia  2



SURREY, B.C. – British Columbia had a better game Saturday morning in Surrey but still couldn’t beat Saskatchewan, with Bailey Habscheid (Wymark, Sask.) scoring the first and last goals of the game to secure the 4-2 win and seventh place in the standings.

Habscheid’s initial marker came about midway through the first on a power-play, with assists going to fellow forwards Jessica Campbell (Melville, Sask.) and Shelby Nisbet (Dinsmore, Sask.).

Saskatchewan held on to its 1-0 lead going into the second, but B.C. came back in the second with defenceman Anna Kozniuk (North Vancouver, B.C.) and forward Alex Yallouz (North Vancouver, B.C.) giving their team a boost in the game and a much-needed boost in the tournament after a tough 13-0 loss Friday night to Manitoba.

But British Columbia’s 2-1 lead would be short-lived, with Saskatchewan’s Jenna Smith (Swift Current, Sask.) and Ellen Lind (Saskatoon, Sask.) scoring two quick ones and Habscheid securing her second of the night and the 4-2 win for her team.

Saskatchewan heads back to the prairies in seventh, while British Columbia lands in last place and will have to set its rights on the 2011 National Women’s Under-18 Championship.
