Mount He­bert’s Shan­non Ma­cAulay has her sec­ond gold medal with Team Canada from the Na­tions Cup.

Canada’s Na­tional Women’s De­vel­op­ment Team de­feated Fin­land 4-3 in over­time Thurs­day in Ger­many to re­tain their ti­tle. It is their 11th gold medal in 14 years.

Jamie Lee Rat­tray net­ted the game-win­ner 48 sec­onds into over­time as part of her three-point (two goals, as­sist) night.

“It was amaz­ing,” said Rat­tray. “Fin­land played un­be­liev­able tonight and I thought we did a pretty good job of weath­er­ing a lot of storms be­cause we took a lot of penal­ties and did a good job on the penalty kill.”

The game was score­less af­ter the first pe­riod while Canada took a 3-2 lead to the third. Canada fin­ished the tour­na­ment 3-0 af­ter de­feat­ing Swe­den and Rus­sia in the pre­lim­i­nary round.

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