A three-goal outburst in the third period was the difference as the Guelph Gryphons’ women's hockey team was able to push their win streak to five games with a 4-2 victory over the Ryerson Rams.

Trailing 1-0, the Rams would jump on the Gryphons early in the third and tie the game on a power play goal. But Guelph would take control from there, scoring three times in the span of 6:21.

Rookie goalie Aurore Beaulieu was given just her third start of the season and turned away 25 shots, including 15 saves in a busy third period.

The 4th-ranked Gryphons improve to 13-2-1 on the season and sit atop the OUA standings. The Rams fall to 5-7-3.

The Gryphons will now face UOIT in a home-and-home series. Guelph’s next game will be this Saturday in Oshawa, before returning home the following Saturday (January 21st) to host the Ridgebacks.
