HARBIN, China – McGill teammates Vanessa Davidson of Kirkland, Que., and Carly Hill of Dorval, Que., combined for three goals as Canada blanked Finland 5-0 before 2,100 at the Harbin Ice Hockey Gym at world university winter games in China, Thursday.

Canada snapped a scoreless draw with five markers in the final period, including two by Davidson and one by Hill, who was credited with the game-winner at the 48-second mark.

Less than six minutes later, St.FX’s Brayden Ferguson of Toronto, and Moncton’s Marieve Provost of Laval, Que., scored 82 seconds apart to put Canada ahead 3-0. Davidson then struck twice at 9:52 and 10:45 to ice the contest.

In a physical affair that featured 55 minutes in penalties, Canada outshot the Finns 42-17, with Manitoba’s Stacey Corfield picking up the win.

The Canadian women’s record is now 2-0 as they head into an off-day. Their next game is scheduled to take place Saturday against Slovakia.
