What the United States Women’s National Team has done in the past three weeks is nothing short of remarkable.
It’s only fitting they’d close out the 2017 Women’s World Championship against blood rival Canada by defeating them 3-2 in overtime for the US’s first gold on home soil.
In front of a standing room only crowd in Plymouth, Michigan the US got off to a somewhat sluggish start.
Just over a minute into the first period, the United States experienced only their second deficit of the tournament when Jennifer Wakefield and Meghan Agosta get in on the rush.
Wakefield sends a pass to Agosta who snipes it to give the Canadians a 1-0 lead.
