2008-09 National Women's Under-18 Team

Canada 16 - Switzerland 1 (Final)


FÜSSEN, GERMANY – After a 10-hour trip from Toronto to Munich to Füssen, Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team hit the ice for its first game on Monday and lit up the scoreboard.

Casandra Langan (Chatham, ON/London, PWHL) scored four times and Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, ON/Ottawa, PWHL) added a hat trick of her own as Canada thumped the Swiss 16-1. The Canadians outshot Switzerland 80-7 overall.

Sixteen of Canada’s 18 skaters recorded at least a point, led by four each from Langan and Laurie Kingsbury (Valleyfield, QC/Sélects, Midget AA), who had a goal and three assists. Marie-Philip Poulin (Beauceville, QC/Dawson College, Collégial AA), Jessica Wong (Baddeck, NS/Stoney Creek, PWHL) and Brianne Jenner (Oakville, ON/Mississauga, CWHL) also added two goals apiece.

Wong opened the scoring just past the five-minute mark of the opening period before Langan took over, scoring three times in 9:20 to complete her natural hat trick before the horn had sounded to end the opening 20 minutes.

Sophie Anthamatten replaced Sarah Kung in the Swiss goal to start the second period but it made no difference, as the Canadians peppered Anthamatten with 32 shots in her first 20 minutes of work.

Langan scored her fourth consecutive goal early in the middle frame to make it 5-0, and Jenner, who scored twice in the period, Wong, Jessica Campbell (Melville, SK/Pursuit of Excellence) and Rattray also scored to help Canada hit double digits before the second intermission.

Sarah Forster scored the lone goal for the Swiss just past the midway point of the second period, the only puck to beat Roxanne Douville (Beloeil, QC/Edouard-Montpetit, Collégial AA), who needed to make just six saves to record the victory.

With the game well in hand, Rattray scored twice in the third period to complete her hat trick, joined on the scoresheet in the final 20 minutes by Poulin, who scored both of her goals in the third, Kingsbury and Breann Frykas (East St. Paul, MB/Detroit Little Caesars, Midget AAA).

Canada looks to go 2-0 in preliminary round play on Tuesday when it faces Finland (8:30 a.m. EST).
