CALGARY, AB - Canada's National Women's Under 22 Team won a second consecutive game, claiming a 4-1 victory over the USA National Women's Under 22 Team on Friday night in Calgary, Alberta.

After a scoreless first period, Cherie Piper, of Scarborough, ON opened the second period with her second goal in as many games at 0:59, sent in alone on Jackie MacMillan by defender Colleen Sostorics, of Kennedy, SK.

Piper and Sostorics combined again at 7:49, as Sostorics sent the puck in front of the net, where it bounced in off Piper. Canada made it 3-0 at 8:57, as defender Kim Malcher's shot from the point deflected past Melissa Glaser, who had replaced MacMillan after Canada's second goal.

USA closed the gap moments later, when Kimberley Insalaco beat Tania Pinelli, of Hamilton,ON, from in close at 11:12.

Canada killed off three consecutive USA powerplays in the third period to maintain the advantage, and closed out the scoring on an empty-net goal by Gina Kingsbury, of Rouyn-Noranda, QC, to make the final 4-1.

Canada and USA conclude the three-game series in Medicine Hat, on Sunday, August 27th, 2000 at 6 pm.
