Brianna Decker (5th minute), Kendall Coyne Schofield (25th) and Grace Zumwinkle (39th) scored for the defending champions. The Americans’ other 55 attempts led to defending Swiss goalkeeper Andrea Brandly, who is committed to Ohio State University.
Swiss women are not strong enough to rely on the aggressor. Head coach Colin Muller’s team brought only 10 completions on Brandlis’ goal in front of Alex Cavallini.
In the second Group A game, Canada beat Finland 5:3 despite being down 2–0 after the first period. All five teams from the strong Preliminary Round Group A pre-qualified for the quarter-finals. There are also three teams from Group B.
