US defeats neighbors in women's hockey, curling — Woe Canada

Members of the joint women's hockey team of two Koreas form a circle after their match with Sweden at Kwandong Hockey Centre located in Gangneung around 240 kilometers east of Seoul on Feb. 20 2018

Team USA ended a two-decade wait for a gold medal in ice hockey, after a thrilling 3-2 shootout win against Canada in the women's final.

In order to win it, you have to lose the gold. "This is something you will never forget and will use for motivation going forward".

Team Canada isn't used to losing in women's Olympic hockey.

Both teams were unable to find the back of the net in overtime, so the game went to a shootout.

That set the stage for Rooney, the Olympic debutante who made 29 saves over 80 minutes of regulation and overtime, whose save of Agosta's shot sealed a long-awaited victory for the United States over their northern neighbors. This would be an opportunity for the United States to bring forth their best and to beat the defending champions. The round-robin game was dominated by the Americans.

It turns out the twins have been practicing the manoeuvre for four years with skills coach Peter Elander. The first Olympics women's hockey game U.S. took home the gold beating out Canada. "This team was very special". She kept it off while shaking hands with U.S. players after the game. "It's part of your fabric", said Hillary Knight about the defeat four years ago.

In a reversal of 2014, the Americans tied the game in the third period. The goalies stood strong, however. The Americans triumphed only once in the inaugural tournament in 1998. Mid-day accepts no responsibility or liability for its dependability, trustworthiness, reliability and data of the text. Monique Lamoureux-Morando scored with six minutes to go, setting up another wild finish between these two teams. "Just the stimulus of the environment got to me", she said.

But it's the Olympics.

There are only two outcomes if you play in this game: joy, or devastation. Following Lamoureux-Davidson's epic goal, U.S.A's Maddie Rooney stoned Meghan Agosta on the ensuing shot to secure the gold. Finally, in 2010 they were beaten by Canada 2-0.

The U.S. team playing for the country's first ever curling gold medal is comprised of skip John Shuster, a Chisholm, Minn., native now living in Superior, Wis., Tyler George and John Landsteiner of Duluth, Matt Hamilton of McFarland, Wis., and alternate Joe Polo of Duluth.
