A few minutes later, the Americans found themselves 5v3 and took advantage of that. Amanda Kessel completed a perfect tic-tac-toe operation. She took advantage of quick passes from Alex Carpenter and Johnsey Dunn.

It was Victoria Bach who had the opportunity to join Pauline and Brian Jenner in the first trio.

Five clashes remained between the two teams before the Olympics. The two teams will meet in the US Midwest in December, then in Alberta for two finals in early January.
