BENDIGO teenager Emily Davis-Tope is making every shot count with the Australian under-18 women's ice hockey team.
The 15-year-old was part of the national team to win gold in the division one group B qualification group at the IHF World Women's Under-18 Championships in San Sebastian, Spain.
Davis-Tope, who represents Melbourne Ice in the Australian Women's Ice Hockey League, was named alternate captain of the 20-player squad.
The Australians clinched gold with a 10-0 win over Romania on Monday morning (Australian time), with Davis-Tope among the goal scorers.
It followed a 3-1 win over Spain on Australia Day and a convincing 5-0 win over Mexico on January 28.
Davis-Tope registered an assist and one goal in both earlier round games.
As the tournament winners, Australia now move into division one pool B.
The promotion caps a rapid rise for the Australian team under coach Tamra Jones, with this year being only the second year the national team has been allowed to play at the world championships.
Her involvement with the under-18 team is just the tip of the iceberg as far as national representative duties go for Davis-Tope.
She will soon head to Japan to train with the national women's team ahead of the women's world championships in Korea on April 2-8.
Davis-Tope will be the youngest player on the squad, with Australia starting the division IIA championships ranked 25th in the world.
