Canada Beats Usa In Olympic Warmup

2013-10-13-team-canada-wins

Even after being on the losing end of the 2011 Gold Cup final, Howard was never willing to concede that there was a gap between Mexico and the U.S. national team. So perhaps it shouldnt come as a surprise that Howard made a point to remind people who finished at the top of the Hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying. Were proud (of topping the Hexagonal) because, depending on who you asked, we were a million miles away from Mexico, and we never believed that, Howard said. When you talk about the semifinal round and the Hex, doing it over a long period of time shows that were once again the best team in CONCACAF. Thats not lip service, thats what the standings tell us, so were proud of that. Over the last two years all weve been hearing about is how dominant Mexicos been, and look, thats what happens at the top, theres going to be that ebb and flow. In 2011, after Mexico handed the USA a 4-2 loss in the Gold Cup final, it looked as though Mexico was set up for a run of dominating form. The gold medal in the 2012 Olympics only boosted El Tris credentials, and with the USA not even qualifying for that tournament, it gave the feeling that Mexico was leaving the Americans in the dust. Things started to really change from the start of 2013, when Mexicos own struggles began. El Tri failed to win any of its first five qualifiers, while the USA shook off a Hex-opening loss to Honduras to eventually take over the group. For us, it wasnt a shaky start, Howard said. It was a tough loss on a hot day in Honduras, and it was only one game. After that match we still had nine to go and we hadnt played a home game yet. It was all part of the process. The U.S.

Ives Galarcep: Two years after Mexican reign supposedly began, it is the USA wearing CONCACAF’s crown

The USA’s game was disjointed but the Americans’ speed still led to a couple of quality chances that Szabados (15 saves) rejected. Ouellette sent Canada into a 1-0 lead at 4:16 of the second, converting Jayna Hefford’s cross-slot power play pass. Only 1:21 later, Bailey Bram knocked in Canada’s second goal during a goal-mouth scrum.

Until a late power play, the U.S. put one shot on goal during an earlier player-advantage. The extent of Canadian domination was reflected not only in the two goals but the 12-2 shot advantage in the second period and 17-6 through 40 minutes. Then came the third with Tara Watchorn putting Canada into a 3-0 lead at 4:54. The United States finally broke through during a two-player advantage. Brianna Decker swatted the puck out of the air right in front of Szabados at 11:05. Gigi Marvin brought the pro-USA crowd to full throttle at 14:39 by cutting the lead to 3-2. The U.S. kept up the attack, but the Canadians secured their second consecutive win against the Americans at Gutterson, following up their 5-4 overtime victory in the championship game of the 2012 IIHF women’s world championships.
