On Saturday night, the Voyageurs women's hockey team earned their seventh win of the season as they shut out the Laurier Golden Hawks 1-0.
The first period was scoreless, despite the Golden Hawks controlling the play. Shanna Dolighan stopped all 5 shots she faced in the first frame, while the Voyageurs were able to get 13 on net in the other end.
The scoreless tie continued through the second with nothing more then two minutes of penalty kill for the Voyageurs. Dolighan again made saves on all three shots she faced while sending 10 shots on Laurier's Cohen Myers.
Late in the third period, Natalie Lamarche finally found the back of the net as Marie-Pierre Pelissou and Nicole Vigilanti would manage the assist at 18:56. The end of the third period resulted in 22 minutes of penalties both assessed to Laurentian and Laurier following a scrum.
Dolighan's 15 save shutout was her first shutout of the season and the Voyageurs are now on to Western this Sunday.
