WATERLOO, Ont. (January 13, 2013) - The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks women's hockey team's depth was on display once again on Sunday night as they got goals from five different players to defeat the Ryerson Rams 5-2 at the Waterloo Recreation Complex.

Fourth year forward Paula Lagamba of Toronto, keyed the Hawks attack as she scored the game-winning goal while also chipping in with an assist. For Lagamba, the two points gives her four for the weekend, nearly doubling her offensive output leading into the Christmas break.

"Right now, I'm playing better than I was before the break," commented Lagamba on her play. "I'm playing with a little more confidence and I'm hoping that's going to carry on to the next stretch of games to close out the season."

Four other Hawks also found the scoresheet on multiple occasions on Sunday as Jessie Hurrell of Palgrave, Ont., and Andrea Shapero of Toronto, also had a goal and an assist while Emily Kekewich of Kingston, Ont., and Tammy Freiburger of Wingham, Ont., each had two assists.

Erika Thunder got the start in goal for the Hawks and made 20 saves to earn her 10th win over the season.

In a matchup between the first place and last place teams in the league, the start was predictable in this one as Laurier jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening 20 minutes thanks in large part to a 21-5 edge in shots.

Ryerson turned their play around in the second period and got on the board with a powerplay marker from Janella Brodett of Edmonton, three minutes into the period. 

Midway through the frame, with the Hawks still struggling to regain their form from the first period, head coach RICK OSBORNE called a timeout that seemed to spark his team. Off the ensuing faceoff, Laura Brooker of Fergust, Ont., picked up the puck in the high slot and fired one past Ryerson goaltender Dana Carson of London, Ont., to restore Laurier's three goal cushion. For Brooker, the goal is the 13th of the season for her, good for the team lead, and also gives her 49 goals for her career.

The two teams would also trade goals in the third as Monique Cornett of Potsdam, N.Y., and Shapero found the back of the net for the Rams and Hawks respectively.

With the victory, the Hawks improve their record to 16-1-2 on the season while the Rams fall to 2-15-1.

Laurier will now head on the road for five of their last six contests, beginning next weekend with a pair of crucial games against the Windsor Lancers on Friday night and the Western Mustangs on Sunday afternoon.
