WATERLOO, Ont. - A first period goal by Kaley Powers (Kingston, Ont.) lifted the no. 2 ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks to a 1-0 victory over the visiting University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

"This game was typical of the Laurier-Toronto rivalry of the past," said head coach RICK OSBORNE following the content.  "The second period was a real battle."

The Hawks have now extended their winning-streak to 17 games for a 17-0-0 record while the Blues fall to 8-7-2 on the season.

Powers scored the only goal in the contest at 6:33 in the first period with the assist going to defencemen Fiona Lester (Peterborough, Ont.).

Both sides failed to capitalize on their man-advantage opportunities as both went 0-5 on the power play. Going into this matchup the Hawks had the best penalty kill in the league, while the Blues had the worst.  Neither team had a full two-minute power play as an infraction was called during each one.

Liz Knox (Stouffville, Ont.) picked up her league leading eighth shutout of the season by stopping all 21 shots on net. The Blues netminder Kendyl Valenta (Brampton, Ont.) turned aside 37 of 38 in the loss.

Laurier will now host the University of Waterloo Warriors at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex on Saturday, January 16 at 7:30 p.m.
