Goaltender Shannon Szabados picks up first win in men's pro league

COLUMBUS, Ga. - Goaltender Shannon Szabados has earned her first win in the Southern Professional Hockey League.

She made 34 saves for the Columbus Cottonmouths in a 5-4 overtime win over the Fayetteville FireAntz on Friday.

It was also the first win of the season for Columbus (1-8).

Szabados backstopped the Canadian women's hockey team to Olympic gold in both 2010 and 2014.

The 28-year-old from Edmonton signed with Columbus late last season and went 0-2 in her starts.

Szabados re-signed with the Cottonmouths in the off-season and was 0-2 prior to Friday's win.
