RATTRAY SCORES IN OT, CANADA WINS NATIONS CUP

JASON LA ROSE

FÜSSEN, Germany – Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, Ont./Brampton, CWHL) scored the golden goal, netting her second of the game 48 seconds into overtime to give Canada’s National Women’s Development Team a 4-3 win over Finland in the gold medal game Thursday at the 2016 Nations Cup.

It’s the 11th time Canada has won gold at the tournament since first taking part in 2003.

Rebecca Kohler (St. Thomas, Ont./University of North Dakota, WCHA) and Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont./Boston University, HE) had the other goals for the Canadians, while Amanda Leveille (Kingston, Ont./University of Minnesota, WCHA) made 22 saves to record the win.

Canada had the advantage early, outshooting Finland 8-5 in the first period, but it took until the 5:55 mark of the second for Kohler to open the scoring on an unassisted effort.

Rattray’s first goal doubled the Canadian lead just 1:28 after Kohler’s goal, but Jenni Hiirikoski made good on a Finnish power play to get the Europeans back within one midway through the middle frame.

Bach was quick to answer for Canada, restoring the two-goal lead at 16:20 before Mira Jalosuo beat Leveille with less than a second to go in the period, sending the Finns to dressing room down just one.

Anna Kilponen pulled Finland even 3:12 into the third period, and Leveille and Finnish counterpart Meiri Raisanen held the offences in check from there, leading to Rattray’s overtime heroics.

Rattray finished as Canada’s leading scorer, scoring five goals and adding two assists in three games.
