No chance against Canada – Swiss women play for bronze medal at Hockey World Cup
Switzerland is playing for third place at the Women’s World Cup in Calgary. Colin Muller’s team lost in the semi-final 0:4 against Canada.
In a 5–0 loss in the group game against Canada, the Swiss suffered almost until the middle of the second period. This time they were already 0-2 after less than seven minutes, an early decision against the clearly favorite ten-time world champions, who won their final title nine years earlier. The Superior Canadian scored the other goal after 26 minutes and just before the end.
First goalkeeper Andrea Brandly fought against a tremendous force. The Zurich native, who played for Ohio State University in the United States, made 61 successful parade appearances. For their part, Swiss women only shot ten times over the course of 60 minutes, as in the Canadian case.
The Swiss met Finland on Tuesday evening in the third-place game. The Northerners, against whom the Swiss team had lost 6–0 in the previous group game, lost 0–3 to defending champions USA in the second semi-final. (ZAP/SDA)
