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

In the Division 1 Group B of the Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Latvia, Great Britain suffered a tough 7-1 loss to top seeds Slovakia. The game was dominated by Slovakia from the start, with two quick goals in Riga. However, Katie Marsden managed to give GB hope with a well-placed shot into the bottom corner, bringing the score to 2-1 at the end of the opening period.

Despite Marsden’s efforts, Slovakia continued to dominate the game by scoring four more goals in the middle period, followed by another goal in the final minute, bringing the final score to 7-1. Ema Galisova stood out as the leading scorer for Slovakia, contributing two goals to their impressive win.

Marsden was acknowledged as GB’s player of the game for her determined performance, while Slovakia’s goaltender, Andrea Risianova, received the award for her exceptional saves in the final period that helped secure the victory for her team. With this loss, Britain now sits five points behind Slovakia and has one win and one overtime loss in their three matches so far.

However, GB is not giving up on its dream of qualifying for Division 1 Group A yet. They are gearing up to face Slovenia next on Friday April 5th and hosts Latvia on Saturday April 6th. The top team in this group will earn promotion to Division 1 Group A adding more pressure for Great Britain as they fight for a spot in the next round.

The Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship continues with many exciting games ahead of us. It will be interesting to see how GB performs against Slovenia and Latvia next week and if they can turn things around before it’s too late.
