WATERLOO – The #3 nationally ranked Golden Hawk women’s hockey team maintained their position at the top of the OUA with a 3-0 victory over the Guelph Gryphons.

Third year netminder Morgan Wielgosz of Dorchester stopped all 18 shots on net for her sixth career shutout and the first of the 2006-07 campaign. Wielgosz made some key shots in the second period when the Hawks were on the penalty kill.

Head Coach RICK OSBORNE was happy with the win but aware of the strong Guelph team which the Hawks will face once again in January. "The speed, tempo and pace are items we are trying to dictate in the style of our game," said Osborne. "Guelph matched us in the first and we were able to make some key plays to get the goals later on."

The score wasn’t indicative of the game as Guelph had some great opportunities including six power-plays to Laurier’s two.

Second year forward Andrea Ironside opened scoring the purple-and-gold seven-minutes into the second as she tricked Guelph goalie Aleisha Lusk and put it around her for her second goal of the season. Daniela Di Felice picked up the second when she deflected a shot on net by Lauren Meschino. The final goal of the game was only minutes later when Fiona Aiston tipped in a shot on the power-play from Kate Psota.

The win over the Gryphons is the Hawks fourth consecutive dating back to a tie on December 1st 2005. The University of Guelph Gryphons last beat the Hawks 3-1 in February of 2005.

The team next plays on Friday when they host the Windsor Lancers at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex. Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m.
