WFCQ 2016 Americas: Final Day – 14.02.2016
Comparing to the games played during the last two days in the WFCQ 2016 Americas the game of the last day had totally different speed. Both USA and Canada had already secured their spots in the WFC Final Round in December, but this game would decide, which of the teams would win the Americas qualification.
USA started fast and they were able to create several goal scoring situations during the first minutes of the game. It was not easy for Canada to try to stop the powerful Americans. But Canada held, even though the Americas had a power play. Canada had very hard time to find a way to be able to start to play their own game.
Seven minutes before the end, USA came back to the game by scoring their third and just a bit more than minute from that at 54.30 the Americans scored the fourth. At 55.53 Spencer Ridgewell took a ball from US defender, made his way to the goal and surprised the American goalie by removing the ball to the upper corner. Important goal for team Canada. One minute later Cameron Buck scored the sixth for Canada and that was the straw wich broke the camel´s back even though USA played the last minutes without the goalie and scored one more.
The 6-5 victory secured that Canada was number one in the WCQ 2016 Americas.
USA: Alexander McVey
