WHITE GETS FIRST INTRASQUAD WIN IN CAMP FINALE
CALGARY, Alta. – Kristyn Capizzano (Oakville, Ont./Boston College, HE) and Rhyen McGill (Whitby, Ont./Clarkson University, ECAC) scored the go-ahead and eventual game-winning goals just 63 seconds apart in the second period as White beat Red 5-2 in the intrasquad finale Saturday at Canada’s National Women’s Development Team selection camp.
The win evens the intrasquad series for White, which dropped a one-goal decisions to Red on Monday; it also earned exhibition wins over Sweden and the CIS all-stars during the week.
Red goaltender Stephanie Neatby (Toronto, Ont./Princeton University, ECAC) stole the show early, reaching behind her to sweep the puck off the line midway through the first period, and her team rewarded her with a goal shortly after.
Hanna Bunton (Belleville, Ont./Cornell University, ECAC) cut to the net before dropping a pass onto the stick of Sarah Potomak (Aldergrove, B.C./University of Minnesota, WCHA), whose shot squeezed through White netminder Shea Tiley (Shallow Lake, Ont,/Clarkson University, ECAC) for a 1-0 lead at 11:25.
White waited until the midway mark of the second period to pull even; Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont./Boston University, HE) did the work, dancing through the slot and letting go a shot before Lindsey Agnew (Oakville, Ont./University of Minnesota, WCHA) put in the rebound.
Capizzano gave White its first lead on the power play at 14:31, tipping a Savannah Newton (Middle Sackville, N.S./Boston University, HE) point shot past Erica Howe (Orleans, Ont./Brampton, CWHL), and McGill knocked in a loose puck at the side of the net at 15:37 for a 3-1 White advantage through 40 minutes.
Emily Clark (Saskatoon, Sask./University of Wisconsin, WCHA) extended the lead six minutes into the third period, beating Howe from the slot, and Bach redirected in a pass from Rebecca Leslie (Ottawa, Ont./Boston University, HE) at 13:31 for the final White marker.
Eden Murray (Medicine Hat, Alta./Yale University, ECAC) got one back for Red with just 18 seconds left to provide the final margin of victory for White.
Both teams picked up the offence as the game went on, combining for 16 shots in the first period, 21 in the seconds and 28 in the third; White finished with a 33-32 advantage overall.
With the camp schedule complete, 22 players will be named to Canada’s National Women’s Development Team on Sunday ahead of a three-game series against the United States in Calgary.
