In the Women’s Ice Hockey World Championship in Latvia, Great Britain suffered a heavy 7-1 loss to top seed Slovakia in Division 1 Group B. The game started with Slovakia taking control early as they scored two quick goals in Riga. However, Katie Marsden was able to give GB hope with a well-placed shot into the bottom corner to make it 2-1 at the end of the opening period.

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

Marsden was named Great Britain’s player of the year for her determined performance, while Slovakia goalkeeper Andrea Risianova was awarded for some outstanding defending in the final period that helped her side secure victory. With this defeat, Britain are now five points behind Slovakia, with one win, one loss and one extra-time loss in their three matches so far.

Despite this setback, GB prepare to face Slovenia on Friday 5 April, followed by the final against hosts Latvia the following day. The top team in the group will earn promotion to Division 1 Group A, adding even more pressure for Great Britain as they battle for a place in the next round.
