Ice hockey players in the United States settled with Finland in the semi-finals of the Olympic tournament: 4-1. Although the result indicated that the United States would reach the final easily, the opposite was true.
Finland made it easy for the reigning Olympic champion. In the first period it was already difficult and both countries did not give up. Finnish goalkeeper Ani Kisala in particular kept her country’s lead going and teammate Michiel Karvenen missed a huge opportunity in the last minute of the first half.
Bronze, bronze, bronze again?
The Finns didn’t give up, but after Kayla Barnes’ 1-0 win and two missed chances, Hilary Knight gave the United States a 2-0 lead. After 3-0, through beautiful advice from Hayley Scamora, the damage was done.
In the final stage of the match, Finland took Kissala off the ice and Susan Tabani did something against the Finns. The last chord was by Abby Roque: 4-1.
Finland has won bronze in thirteen of the twenty World Cups and three of the six Olympic Games behind Canada (which won the other semi-finals on Monday) and the United States. The country can now also prepare to battle for the bronze medal.
