After a couple of close calls in previous tournaments, the Laurier Golden Hawks women’s hockey team looks to finally win on home ice.
On Feb. 3, the team will host an extramural tournament at Laurier Brantford, in hopes of finally going all the way to the championship. The tournament will be played at the Wayne Gretzky Centre in downtown Brantford.
This tournament comes after two previous tournaments throughout the school year, which saw them come close to winning both times.
The first tournament, which was hosted by Fanshawe College in London, saw the girls go all the way to the finals against the host team. Unfortunately, things didn’t go their way as the game resulted in a loss, but the team still came out of the tournament with the “Fair Play Award”.
The second tournament, which was hosted by Humber College in Toronto, was successful at the start for the Golden Hawks, as they were undefeated for most of the tournament. However, their first loss was their only loss, as they fell in the semi finals in the tournament.
Heading into the tournament, the Golden Hawks’ leading scorers are Samantha Keen, Shannen Head, Melissa Briden and Katrina Moczerad.
