WATERLOO, Ont. - The no. 2 nationally ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 4-1 win over the visiting Western Mustangs.

“As a team we played well and got the goals we needed for the win,” said team captain Andrea Ironside (Collingwood, Ont.) who assisted on the game winning goal. “We’re continuing to push ourselves to improve our scoring opportunities.”

Kristen Kilgallen (Guelph, Ont.) got the start for the Hawks giving netminder Liz Knox (Stouffville, Ont.) a night off. The first year goalie stopped 13 of 14 shots on net for her second win.

Laurier went to work early with Kate Psota (Burlington, Ont.) scoring just under four minutes in off a deflection.  Laurier carried most of the play in the first period, out-shooting the visitors 11-3.

Katherine Shirriff (Carrying Place, Ont.) started the second period with a power player marker and her sixth goal of the season. The goal would end up being the game winner. Laura Bartolini (Mississauga, Ont.) made it 3-0 off a nice pass into the slot from Heather Fortuna (Kitchener, Ont.).

The Mustangs got on the board just 21 seconds into the third period off a nice shot form Chantal Morais that got over the glove hand of Kilgallen. Devon Skeats (Whitby, Ont.) scored the Hawks fourth goal with less than three minutes remaining to put the win away.

Of the nine penalties called in the game, five were against Laurier and four against the Mustangs. Western also wasn’t able to capitalize on a 5-3 advantage early in the third period while Laurier’s Abby Rainsberry (Petrolia, Ont.) and Devon Skeats were sitting in the box for slashing and holding calls respectively.

“Discipline is going to be the key for us against Queen’s,” said head coach RICK OSBORNE. “We want to stay out of the box and hopefully get our power play going.”

The Hawks will conclude the first half of the season on the road with a game against the no. 7 ranked Queen’s Gaels on Friday, December 4th at 7:30 p.m.  They will then head back to Oshawa to take on the UOIT Ridgebacks on Saturday, December 5th at 7:30 p.m.
