Saskatchewan Huskies take Bronze Medal

In game number 8 of the CIS Women's Hockey Championships hosted by St. Thomas University, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies scored five powerplay goals en-route to a 6 to 3 win over the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks.

U of Sask. defencewoman Julia Flinton scored a hat trick to pace the Huskies to their first CIS medal in school history.  The score was tied after the first period at 1's, U of Sask held a 3 to 2 advantage after two, and pulled away in the third with three goals including an empty net tally.

Goaltender Amanda Smith of WLU faced 27 shots, while the Huskies' Cassidy Hendricks stopped 39 of 42 Golden Hawks shots. BOX SCORE

Congratulations to the University of Saskatchewan.

Tonight's Gold Medal match up between the University of Montreal Carabins and the McGill University Marlets stands to be a dandy tilt.  These two teams HATE each other and that word probably doesn't do this rivalry justice.  It will be the ninth meeting of season this evening, both teams with 4 wins each.  Number Nine will be for a National Championship.

Come one, come all to the Grant-Harvey Centre tonight at 6:30 PM ADT for what should be a classic.
