Curl & Webster Net Goals in Shootout; Team USA Plays for Gold Tomorrow (Jan. 13) at 11:30 a.m. ET

DMITROV, Russia – Britta Curl (Bismarck, N.D.) and Makenna Webster (St. Louis, Mo.) scored in the shootout and Lindsay Reed (New Vernon, N.J.) stopped the final four shots she faced in the shootout as the U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team overcame a two-goal deficit in the final period to defeat Canada, 4-3, here today in the semifinals of the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation Under-18 Women’s World Championship.

“We had great play from our leaders,” said Joel Johnson, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team. “Our older players, returners and captains stepped up when we needed them the most and rallied the group. It’s a real honor to have the opportunity to play for gold tomorrow.”

The victory gives Team USA its 11th consecutive berth in the event’s gold-medal game, which takes place tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. ET. The U.S. will take on the winner of tonight’s semifinal matchup between Sweden and Russia.
