WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Canada scored two goals late in regulation to force overtime and then defeated the United States, 3-2, to win the gold medal in women’s hockey at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

It was the fourth straight time Canada has won Olympic gold. The U.S. has settled for the silver medal in three of the last four Olympics, including the last two.

Marie-Philip Poulin scored the game-winner for Canada on a power play goal 8:10 into overtime. Meghan Duggan and Alex Carpenter scored for the United States. Brianne Jenner and Poulin had the other goals for Team Canada. 

Josephine Pucci of Pearl River, N.Y., was a member of Team USA.

Team USA seemed to have the game in hand before Canada rallied late in the third period. Jenner scored with 3:26 remaining to trim Canada’s deficit to one goal. Poulin scored with 55 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

Team Canada defeated the U.S., 3-2, in a preliminary round game earlier at Sochi.
