The former CIS all-Canadian stopped 58 of 61 shots sent her way over the two games, including stopping all 11 shots in the third period against Queen’s that saw the Mustangs on the penalty kill for the majority of the frame.

Takahashi, a Kinesiology student from London, won the bronze medal at the Brazil Cup in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday, defeating Chile’s Andres Quispe in the bronze medal match. Takahashi competed at the event in the 57 kg weight class as a member of the Canadian national team.
