Great Britain falls to Slovakia with 7-1 defeat in the Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship

Slovakia claimed a commanding 7-1 victory over Great Britain in the Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Latvia. The match, played in Division 1 Group B, saw Slovakia take an early lead with two quick goals in Riga. However, Katie Marsden managed to bring GB back within striking distance with a well-placed shot into the bottom corner, ending the first period at 2-1.

Despite Marsden’s efforts, Slovakia maintained control and scored four more goals in the second period. In the final minute, Ema Galisova added another goal to seal their impressive win. Galisova was named Slovakia’s leading scorer for her outstanding performance.

Marsden was recognized as GB’s player of the game for her determined effort on the ice. Slovakia’s goaltender, Andrea Risianova, received praise for her exceptional saves during the final period that helped secure the victory for her team. With this loss, Great Britain now sits five points behind Slovakia and has one win, one defeat, and one overtime loss from their three matches so far.

However, despite this setback, GB remains focused on achieving their goal of earning promotion to Division 1 Group A. They will face Slovenia next on Friday April 5th before concluding their group stage against hosts Latvia on Saturday April 6th. The top team in the group will be promoted to Division 1 Group A and add even more pressure for Great Britain as they fight for a place in the next round of competition.
