WATERLOO – Liz Knox (Stouffville, Ont.) deflected 23 shots over three periods to lead the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks over the University of Waterloo Warriors 5-0 in front of 211 fans at Columbia Ice Fields.

"This was a typical battle of Waterloo type of game as both teams competed hard for every inch of ice" commented coach RICK OSBORNE.

Laurier opened the scoring midway through the first period with Kate Psota (Burlington, Ont.) scoring the eventual game winning goal at 10:34 with the assist going to Lauren Barch (Burlington, Ont.). The Hawks continued to pepper Waterloo goalie Erica Bridgewater with shots, tallying 32 on net throughout the game.

The Hawks strong defensive backend led by team captain Andrea Bevan (Collingwood, Ont.) kept the Warriors to the perimeter to prevent scoring chances.

With the Warriors on their heels, the lady Hawks continued to apply pressure in the offensive zone with goals coming from rookie Abby Rainsberry (Petrolia, Ont.), Heather Fortuna (Kitchener, Ont.), Candace Kellough (Bolton, Ont.) and Andrea Ironside.

Laurier continued its strong penalty kill forcing the Warriors to go scoreless in eight opportunities. On the flip side the purple and gold scored one goal in seven opportunities.
