Freshmen Light Up Scoreboard At Championships

Aug 22, 2013

Three incoming freshmen combined to score 11 goals in two wins at the World Junior Championships on Thursday in Volos, Greece.

Roser Tarrago had a team-high six goals, including four in the first period, as Spain rolled past New Zealand 17-5. Meanwhile, Hungary’s Dora Antal scored three times and Anna Illes added two goals in a 24-4 victory over Ukraine.

Hungary’s victory sets up a quarterfinal showdown against the United States on Friday, meaning Antal and Illes will go head-to-head with Cal teammate Tiera Schroeder, a junior on the American team. The United States didn’t play Thursday.

Spain, meanwhile, advances to another quarterfinal matchup against Australia on Friday.
