TORONTO - The Laurier Golden Hawks scored three goals in under 10 minutes of play in the first period and never looked back to defeat the Ryerson Rams, 7-2, on Saturday afternoon at the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens.
Starting goaltender, Brianna Tremblay, started the game but after letting in two goals on three shots, was pulled in favour of Dana Carson.
After a quick goal on Carson before she got settled, Devon Skeets, with her second of the evening on the power play, pushed the lead to 4-0.
The Rams got on the board before the end of the period, when a Mackenzie Manning shot deflected off a Laurier defender and found the back of the net.
Tremblay was back in goal to start the second period and it seemed to give the Rams a spark. A Melissa Wronzberg shot from the point on the power play was deflected by first-year forward Michelle Evagelou and went into the net to close the lead to 4-2.
The Golden Hawks were dominant in the third period, scoring three times and taking advantage of the Rams turnovers.
Overall, the Golden Hawks outshot Ryerson, 24-22.
The Rams are back in action tomorrow afternoon as they head to Waterloo to take on the 0-1-2 Warriors.
