BUDAPEST, Hungary - Captain Lauren Wildfang scored twice as Canada wrapped up a perfect preliminary round at the IIHF U18 Women's World Championship with a 5-0 win over the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

Victoria Bach opened the scoring midway through the second period. Wildfang scored her first international goal a short time later to put Canada up 2-0.

The Canadians put the game away with two quick goals in the third. Stephanie Lalancette made it a three-goal game before Sarah Potomak added another goal on the power play.

Wildfang capped the scoring as Canada finished first in Pool A at 3-0.

Goaltender Kassidy Sauve made 23 saves for her first international shutout.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
