Jenna Smith of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, who attends the University of Calgary, registered two goals and one assist, while Brittney Fouracres of Airdrie, Alberta (an hour north of Calgary), who attends the University of McGill, had three assists. Both of Smith's goals were even strength. They came at 4:32 and 11:11 of the third period and helped put Canada up 9-0 and 11-0 respectively at the time.

Canada completely dominated Great Britain, as they out shot their opposition 94-1.

The biggest surprise on Friday however came in the game between the United States and Japan, where the Japanese got 20 saves from Hazuki Maeda in a 2-0 victory over the Americans. What was even more impressive is the fact that team Japan outshot the United States 32-20.
