WOW! What an amazing game for Team USA's women's hockey team.
They fought hard against rival Canada but pulled off the win!
After playing regulation time, it all came down to Overtime and a shootout.
Team USA Hockey's recap reports:
Throughout the 20-minute 4-on-4 overtime, the two teams traded high-quality scoring chances and while the U.S. outshot Canada, 9-7, neither team could find the back of the net.
In the initial five-player shootout, Marvin and Amanda Kessel (Madison, Wis.) scored in the first and fourth rounds while Rooney turned aside three Canadian shooters to force a sixth round. After Lamoureux-Davidson connected on her attempt, Rooney turned aside the final Canadian shootout attempt to seal the gold medal.
That winning shootout goal was SICK!!! (see GIF below)
We are so proud of you, ladies!
