Anni Keisala blocked 33 shots in the match.
Dominant Canada, the world champion in women’s hockey, did not give Finland any mercy in the third meeting of the countries this week. Canada won the match played in Turku on Sunday afternoon with 5-1 goals and decorated its series of 4-2 victories on Thursday and 8-0 on Saturday.
In the week’s previous encounters and already in the World Cup at the end of the summer, the other rounds were Finland’s problem, but this time the game collapsed in the opening round. The second installment, on the other hand, presented the best skills of the Lions Day.
Finland ‘s great underpower game got a stain in the opening round when Sarah Fillier took Canada to the lead after just over two minutes of play. Canada became overwhelmed as a result of the wrong exchange in Finland. After the middle of the batch, Fillier started Ella Sheltonin a full hit and it only took a few more minutes for Victoria Bach to score 3-0.
In the second installment, Canada froze, but Finland only managed to narrow the installment with its third superiority. Susanna Tapani directs the ball behind the goal.
In the final round, Canada won its lead with a couple of extra hits and the Female Lions did not take advantage of their superiority. Anni Keisala blocked a total of 33 shots with the Finnish goal. Canada Ann-Renee Desbiens survived 21 fights. Keisala excelled in the World Championships, but was the second goalkeeper of the Games Meeri Räisänen was on duty on Thursday and Eveliina Mäkinen on saturday.
The meeting for both countries was the last before the Beijing Olympics in February. During the December national break, Finland will camp on the domestic backdrop and seek toughness against the boys’ teams by playing.
