Canada’s Jocelyne Larocque apologises for removing silver medal on podium

February 25 11:52 2018

The United States vowed not to let the gold slip away in Thursday’s final. Following Lamoureux-Davidson’s epic goal, U.S.A’s Maddie Rooney stoned Meghan Agosta on the ensuing shot to secure the gold.

The team’s gold medal is a first for them since 1998. Lamoureux-Davidson’s victor in the 6th round is being called the greatest goal in US women’s hockey history.

Because of how the tournaments are set up, a team must win a bronze medal by defeating a team in the bronze-medal match. “So it means a lot, and to be here with this group of girls and to be with them all year has really been an honor”.

After the emotional loss, Larocque was asked why she couldn’t wear the medal.

HU: This victory was especially sweet after a 20-year gold medal drought and after all the battles the team has won off the ice.

Even U.S. coach Robb Stauber sympathized.

“We wanted to make them throw some hard shots, some shots to win the game, some shots to stay in the game and I think we did that”. It was a thrilling final, it was unreal.

Monique, whose married name is Lamoureux-Morando, was the Canadians’ first big headache when she tied the game at 2-2 on a breakaway off a feed from Kelly Pannek with a little over six minutes remaining. Agosta and Melodie Daoust scored in the shootout.

Calgary’s Kevin Koe lost 7-5 to Switzerland’s Peter de Cruz in the bronze-medal game Friday.

“Just hard”, she said.

“Every year, the silver medal winning team has tears in their eyes”, Mleczko said. It’s what we expected: “back and forth hockey”.

Canada won gold at the previous four Olympics, including victories over United States of America in the 2002, 2010 and 2014 finals.

The Canadians had won Olympic gold in 2010 and 2014.

This will be the fifth time that American athletes fight for primacy in this Olympic discipline.

There will be no team curling medal for Canada at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

In the other match, Sweden took an early two-point lead in the first end against Switzerland and made it a five-point gap after the fourth when skip Niklas Edin’s last-stone take-out left four in the house.
