KAMLOOPS, British Columbia – Alex Carpenter (North Reading, Mass.) scored 12:30 into overtime and Alex Rigsby (Delafield, Wis.) recorded a 32-save shutout to lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to a 1-0 victory here against Canada at the 2016 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Championship. 

"It was another great rivalry game between these two teams and I'm so proud of our players and how hard we competed from start to finish," said Ken Klee, head coach of the 2016 U.S. Women’s National Team. "We gave it everything we had against a very strong opponent in what was a terrific showcase for women's hockey."

The U.S. won all five of its games in the tournament and has now captured the gold medal in six of the last seven IIHF Women's World Championships.

Team USA was forced to kill off two 4-on-3 power plays in the overtime session, including one that encompassed the first 1:52 of the extra session and another that lasted two full minutes and ended just :19 short of the midway point of the 20-minute sudden victory overtime period. Rigsby made seven of her 32 saves in overtime. The U.S. got its own chance on the power play at 10:21 of the extra stanza. While unable to convert, it was just :09 after the penalty expired that Carpenter got her stick on a loose puck in the crease and put home the golden goal. The play started after Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson (Grand Forks, N.D.) redirected a shot from Megan Bozek (Buffalo Grove, Ill.) that trickled past Canadian netminder Emerance Maschmeyer.

The U.S. finished the tournament having not allowed a goal in more than 11 periods ... The U.S. outscored its opponents 23-2 in its five games at the world championship

Alex Rigsby was named the U.S. Player of the Game.

Alex Rigsby, Hilary Knight and Monique Lamoureuxwere named Team USA’s top three players of the tournament.

Hilary Knight was named the top forward of the tournament by the Directorate.
