Goalie Raygan Kirk stopped 10 shots in Canada's 5-1 win over Russia to wrap up the 2019 IIHF U18 Women's World Championship preliminary round with a record of 2-1, securing a spot in the semifinals.

Canada grabbed a hold of the game late in the first period as they scored three goals in just 1:26 and never looked back.

Kirk was solid when called upon and collected her first international win. She was proud of the way the team responded after falling to the American's earlier in the tournament. “We definitely bounced back and stuck to what we know and what we do" the Ste. Anne native said via Hockey Canada release. "We passed the puck really well which helped get some points on the scoreboard. I think we just have to continue playing like we can and not let one loss determine who we are, and keep fighting. We still have two more big games.”

Canada has to wait for the winner of Switzerland-Russia to find out their semifinal opponent.
