Canadian ice hockey players won a gold medal in the final against the United States on Thursday morning. Canada was very strong with a 3-2 score for the US team, which became Olympic champions four years ago.
In the first period, the Canadians led 2-0, after goals from Sarah Norris after about 8 minutes, and Mary Philip Pauline after 15 minutes. In the second half, Pauline made the score 3-0. Seven minutes later, in the 37th minute, Hilary Knight scored the first American goal. The American goal in the last minute of the third game for Amanda Kessel was not enough to prevent defeat.
With their victory, Canadian ice hockey players reclaim Olympic gold. Since women’s ice hockey became part of the 1998 Winter Olympics, Canada has won all but two of the gold medals. Only in Japan’s Nagano in 1998 and at the Pyeongchang Games in South Korea in 2018 did Canada win the silver. Gold went to the United States in those years.
