PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – For the first time ever, Quebec has won the women’s hockey gold medal at the Canada Winter Games, edging Ontario 2-1 in overtime in Saturday night’s gold medal game at the CN Centre.

It’s the seventh medal in as many tries at the Canada Winter Games for Quebec, which finished with the silver medal in 1991 and 2003, and won bronze in 1995, 1999, 2007 and 2011. Ontario earned its second straight silver medal after winning four consecutive gold in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2007.

On Saturday, Audrey Belzile scored the game-winning goal on the power play at 9:18 of overtime, batting in the rebound of an Alyson Matteau shot to clinch the gold medal.

After a scoreless opening 40 minutes, Victoria Eymard got the scoring started for Quebec just 1:40 into the third period, banking a shot off Ontario goaltender Julia Vandyk, but Kristin O’Neill tied it with 3:20 remaining, beating Quebec netminder Maude Trévisan from the slot.

Trévisan finished with 41 saves in the Quebec goal, while Vandyk made 22 stops for Ontario.

Earlier Saturday, Alberta won the bronze medal with a 5-3 victory over Saskatchewan. Alexandra Poznikoff and Malia Schneider had two goals each, and Sarah Lecavalier added one for Alberta, which won its fourth medal ever; it took gold in 1991 and 2011, and earned bronze in 1999.

The women’s hockey tournament at the 2015 Canada Winter Games brought together the top players from across Canada’s provinces and territories born in 1997 or later.
