In the smallest qualifier group for the upcoming WFC in Bratislava, it was only USA and Canada who played each other twice.

Despite playing on home soil (Markham), the Canadians didn’t manage to qualify for December’s world championships. In the first game USA won 5-9. Christine Lindberg impressed with her 3 goals and 3 assists, which she was rewarded for with the MVP price.

The 2nd game ended in a draw, 6-6. Marie Häggström scored, just as in the previous game, a hat-trick for her USA. In Canada it was Kathryn Kennedy who was chosen as the MVP after scoring 3+1. However a draw was not enough for the Canadians to go through the qualifier, and it will be USA who’s going to represent North America in the WFC.
