In game one of the CIS Women's Hockey Championships, the McGill Martlets faced off against the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks at the Grant Harvey Centre.

McGill opened the scoring and we're able to get out to a 3-0 lead before the Golden Hawks put their first tally on the board midway through the third period. The Martlets were able to put the final insurance goal in though shortly afterwards, making it a 4-1 game. 

The Martlets started Taylor Hough in goal who was solid under pressure stopping 20 of 21 shots. The Golden Hawks started Amanda Smith who stopped 20 of 24 shots. The players of the game were Devon Skeats from Laurier and Gabrielle Davidson for McGill. 

Laurier will now play Universite De Moncton on Friday afternoon at 2pm to see if they can play their way into the semi-finals. 

Tonight the number four ranked Saskatchewan Huskies will face off against the number one ranked Carabins de l'Université de Montréal at 7pm, come early to catch the opening ceremonies to the tournament.
