SUNDSVALL, Sweden – Canada’s National Women’s Team claimed its sixth silver medal at the 4 Nations Cup, falling 3-2 in overtime to the United States on Sunday afternoon.

Natalie Spooner (Scarborough, Ont../Toronto, CWHL) opened up scoring for Canada just over a minute into the second, while Meghan Agosta (Ruthven, Ont.) added Canada’s final goal at 14:15 in the second frame. Emerance Maschmeyer (Bruderheim,Alta./Harvard University, ECAC) turned away 30-of-33 of the Americans’ shots on net.

“We brought a lot of young players to this tournament and we got a really good look at where they are at in their development and where we’re at as a program,” said head coach Laura Schuler. “Most importantly we really grew as a team, we challenged the team with a lot of different tasks and they really stepped up to the occasion and did what we were asking them to do. I was really happy with our play and I thought today that we created a lot of scoring chances and unfortunately we just didn’t capitalize enough.”

The Canadians have claimed six silver medals (1997, 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2015) and have appeared in each of the 20 gold-medal games at the tournament, winning 14 gold medals.

Canada’s National Women’s Team finished in second place during the preliminary round, defeating Finland 3-1 on Wednesday, falling to the United States 3-0 on Thursday, and besting Sweden 3-1 on Saturday.

In Sunday morning’s bronze medal game, Finland beat Sweden 3-2 in overtime.

Canada comes together next at the upcoming 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship in Kamloops, B.C. March 28-April 4, 2016.
