On Saturday at Prince George, the host University of Northern B.C. Timberwolves were playing their first-ever home game in Canada West, and the Vikes manhandled them 10-0.
"With the score the way it was, we were able to work on some things,'' UVic coach Tracy David said. "UNBC battled for the entire 90 minutes, and they never gave up. I think everyone knows that UNBC will be in tough this year, and it will take some years for them to develop.''
Lindsay Hoetzel also scored twice for the Vikes, who now have a record of two wins and a tie.
The other goals were added by Jackie Harrison, Sarah Douglas, Jana Yates, Cassie Dennis and Janelle Smith. Steph Parker and Tanya Jones shared the shutout.
