Ma­cAulay scores in ex­hi­bi­tion win

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Mount He­bert’s Shan­non Ma­cAulay scored in Canada’s 8-0 vic­tory over Hun­gary Thurs­day in Aus­tria.

It was a pre-tour­na­ment game for Canada’s na­tional women’s de­vel­op­ment team as it pre­pares to de­fend its ti­tle at the Na­tions Cup from Jan. 4 to 7 in Füssen, Ger­many. Ma­cAulay is one of seven re­turnees from last year’s goldmedal win­ning squad.

Vic­to­ria Bach led Canada Thurs­day with two goals and two as­sists, while Mélodie Daoust picked up two goals and an as­sist. Cas­san­dra Poudrier, Hanna Bun­ton and Kelly Terry also scored while Amanda Leveille picked up the shutout.

“It was awesome com­ing out with that win,” said Ma­cAulay, the only player from At­lantic Canada on the squad.

“It was a good bat­tle and Hun­gary gave us a great run but we bat­tled hard and it was good to see our team come to­gether.”

Canada plays the Czech Repub­lic in Aus­tria to­day at 8:30 a.m.

Ma­cAulay, 21, is a five-foot11, 176-pound for­ward. She is in her fourth year at Clark­son Univer­sity in Pots­dam, N.Y., and is the Golden Knights cap­tain.
