The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Shan­non Ma­cAulay is part of a Cana­dian hockey team play­ing for gold Thurs­day in Ger­many.

Mount He­bert’s Shan­non Ma­cAulay and her Team Canada team­mates will play for gold Thurs­day at the Na­tions Cup in Ger­many.

Canada’s na­tional de­vel­op­ment team de­feated Rus­sia 4-2 on Tues­day to fin­ish first in their three-team pool with a 1-0-1-0 (W-L-OTW-OTWL) record.

They will play Fin­land at 2 p.m. At­lantic in the fi­nal.

“I thought the team played great. I think we came out and showed a lot of char­ac­ter, just like yes­ter­day’s game we stuck with our sys­tems and struc­ture and we bat­tled hard and came out with a good win,” Ma­cAulay said. “(On Thurs­day) I think we just have to keep go­ing the way we have been. I think now it shows we’ve come to­gether as a team and we just need to do what­ever it takes to get the win in the fi­nal.”

Jamie Lee Rat­tray had two goals and an as­sist to lead the way for Canada . Melodie Daoust added a goal and an as­sist while Kate­lyn Gosling had the other Cana­dian goal. Cas­san­dra Poudrier, Brigette Lac­quette, Kelly Terry and Karly Hef­fer­nan had as­sists.

Elaine Chuli was the win­ning goalie.

The game was score­less af­ter the first while Canada took a 31 lead to the third pe­riod.

Ma­cAulay, 21, is in her fourth year at Clark­son Univer­sity in Pots­dam, N.Y., and is the Golden Knights cap­tain.
