As rivalries go, it doesn’t get any better than Canada versus USA in women’s hockey. That became apparent with another edition last night, as Canada edged the USA 2-1 in an Olympic Games round robin game.

Former Chatham hockey player Meghan Agosta was integral in Canada’s win, scoring the opening goal in the second period. Agosta potted a power play marker, with assists from Natalie Spooner and Brianne Jenner.

Agosta was also a physical force in the game, taking a body checking and roughing penalty in her 4th Olympic games.

Agosta also helped Canada open the Pyeongchang Olympics with a pair of wins over the Olympic Athletes from Russia, collecting an assist in the 5-0 victory, and scoring a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win over Finland.

Canada’s 3-0 round robin guarantees they’ll be playing for a medal, as they’ve advanced directly to the semi-finals, which take place February 18 and 19.
