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

Slovakia’s dominance in the Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship game against Great Britain in Division 1 Group B was evident from the start. In just two minutes, they had scored two quick goals in Riga, leaving GB struggling to keep up. 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. 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 victory for her team. With this loss, Britain now sits five points behind Slovakia and is gearing up for their next match against Slovenia on Friday April 5th. The final game will be played against hosts Latvia on Saturday April 6th. The top team in the group will earn promotion to Division 1 Group A and put even more pressure on Great Britain as they fight for a spot in the next round.
