Zumwinkle lifts U.S. over Canada for gold at under-18 women’s world championship

Zumwinkle lifts US over Canada at U18 worlds

ZLIN, Czech Republic — Grace Zumwinkle scored the winner with 2:32 left to play as the United States slipped past Canada 3-1 on Saturday in the final of the under-18 women’s world hockey championship.

Zumwinkle also assisted on Emily Oden’s empty-net goal and Delaney Drake had a power-play goal in the second period for the Americans.

Daryl Watts had tied it 1-1 for Canada at the 12:43 mark of the third period on a power-play goal.

“The biggest thing was that we didn’t capitalize on some of the chances that we had,” said Canada’s head coach Troy Ryan. “We had some quality chances in the first period and just weren’t able to bury them. I found that in the second period we had a little difficulty generating our offensive opportunities. In the third period we obviously worked hard at the end of a power play to tie it up but (they came back).”

The United States has won six gold medals at the event, while Canada has won four. No other country has won the women’s under-18 world championship.
