On Tuesday, Brian Jenner (15th, 32nd), Jamie Lee Rattray (35th) and Marie-Philippaulin (38th via penalty) scored in a duel between two top contenders for the gold medal. Dani Camarnassi (30′) and Alex Carpenter (32′) scored for the United States.

By winning the prestige duel, the Canadian finished first in preliminary round Group A and thus secured the best starting position for the quarter-finals on Friday and Saturday. The women of Germany did not qualify for the Winter Games.

Temporarily only one referee

In the middle section, the game was temporarily controlled by only one chief referee as Canada’s Sienna Lifers received a bat in the face and the wound required stitches in the dressing room. The Lifars returned at the end of the second period, now supporting their compatriot Elizabeth Mantha.
