In dramatic fashion, the game went into a shootout, where Maggie Steffens’ goal on the final penalty shot coupled with a Canada miss secured the victory and brought an end to a shootout that saw each team have 20 attempts.
“I told the girls this is the greatest game I’ve ever been a part of, maybe the most courageous, most mentally tough group of girls during one game that I’ve ever seen,” said Adam Krikorian, head coach of the USA team.
In the same tournament, the USA Men’s National Team punched their ticket to the Olympic Games after beating Canada, as well, 7-3. This win not only secured a spot in the Games, but it also represents Team USA’s fifth straight Pan American Games title.
