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

Great Britain faced a difficult 7-1 loss to top seeds Slovakia in the Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship Division 1 Group B in Latvia. The game began with Slovakia taking control early on, scoring 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 first 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 Slovakia’s leading scorer, contributing two goals to their impressive win.

Marsden was recognized 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 victory for her team. With this loss, Britain now sits five points behind Slovakia and has one win, one defeat and one overtime loss in their three matches so far.

Great Britain is now gearing up to face Slovenia next on Friday April 5th and then hosts Latvia on Saturday April 6th. The top team in Group B will be promoted to Division 1 Group A and it puts even more pressure on Great Britain as they fight for a spot in the next round.
