McGill Martlets, CIS Women's Hockey Champs!

Game winning goal scorer, Brittney Fouracres
Congrats go out to the CIS National Women's Hockey Champs, the McGill Martlets. Both teams, McGill and Montreal played extremely well in the gold medal game.

Both teams scored in the first period, McGill narrowly edged the Carabins in shots on goal 7-6. In the second period McGill was the only team to score, taking a 2-1 lead, McGill had lots more pressure on the Carabins goaltender, Elodie Rousseau-Sirois, with shots on goal 11-4.

The third period is when the scoring opened up though, first with McGill taking a 3-1 lead midway through the period. Not to be outdone though, Montreal started their comeback. The Carabins scored under a minute later to make it a 3-2 game. With 3:13 remaining on the time clock Montreal was able to get the tying goal, making it whole new hockey game. This was the first period in which Montreal lead the shots on goal 11-7.

The first sudden death overtime decided nothing. The four on four overtime was fast and exciting though with lots of close chances. McGill doubled the Carabins shots on goal 6-3 in the 10 minute frame. The second overtime was incredibly short, Montreal took a penalty late in the first overtime giving the Martlets a 4-3 opportunity at the beginning of the second overtime. It only took 0:37 to score the season ending goal. D-lady Brittney Fouracres had the final shot on goal for the season and it was worth all the marbles.
