Third in a row for Canadian girls

Just as in 2012 and 2013 Canada captured the gold medals of the World Women’s U18 Championship after a final victory over USA. Czech Republic won the bronze medals after beating Russia.

 
 
 
 

The Canadian U18 girls won the World Championship for the third consecutive time. USA was beaten 5-1 in Budapest, Hungary. Sarah Potomak and Éve-Audrey Picard both scored twice and Samantha Cogan got one goal.

Canada was undefeated throughout the tournament beating Japan, Finland and Czech Republic in the stage and then Russia in the semi final. Russia was however surprisingly close to eliminate the favorite. On a goal by Lauren Wildfang Canada won the game 1-0 in overtime after Russian goalie Valeria Tarakanova had made 69 saves.

Russia also lost 1-0 in the bronze medal game. The Czech girls surprisingly won the bronze medals on a goal by Aneta Tejralova late in the second period.

Finland finished fifth after beating the neighbor Sweden 3-2 in a shootout game.

The host Hungary were relegated after losing both relegation round games against Japan.
