Vaujany, FRA (April 13, 2018) — The 2017-18 CWHL season may be over, but Les Canadiennes’ fans can continue to cheer on their players at the IIHF Worlds.
French national team players Marion Allemoz and Lore Baudrit are representing Team France at the IIHF Women’s World Championship Division 1 A in Vaujany, a village located in the southeastern France.
From April 8 to the 14, six countries, including Norway, France, Austria, Slovakia, Denmark and Hungary, will battle to determine which top two teams will be promoted to the Top Division at the World Championships, and which two teams will be relegated to Division B.
With six points in three games, France sits third in a three-way tie for first place with Denmark and Hungary. They have triumphed in two games, including a come-from-behind victory on Wednesday against Austria. Down by two goals, France won the game 3-2.
Les Canadiennes’ rookie Lore Baudrit is also making her mark, recording two points (1G, 1A) in three games.
Prior to the game against Austria, Team France captain Marion Allemoz was honoured for her 200th appearance with the international team. Fellow teammate Audrey Lager Lacombe was also honoured for her 100th appearance.
“I played my first game with Team France in July 2005,” Allemoz said in a post-game interview on the Fédération française de hockey sur glace website. “It has been a dream of mine to represent Team France. To win with five seconds remaining in the game in my home country, in front of family, and to have teammate Audrey Lager Lacombe celebrate her 100th game with the national team…I couldn’t have asked for more!”
Team France has two games left against Hungary today and concludes the tournament on April 14 against Slovakia.
Les Canadiennes wish Marion and Lore the best of luck at the tournament!
