CALGARY, ALBERTA – Canada’s World Championship Under-18 Team advanced to the gold medal game at the 2003 World Under-18 Hockey Championship with a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory over the defending World Under-18 champions, Team USA in semi-final action in Yaroslavl, Russia on Sunday.

Team USA opened the scoring in the second period on a T.J. Hensick goal at the 11:56 mark, beating Canadian goaltender Ryan Munce. With only one second remaining in the period, Blackie, Alberta’s Jeremy Colliton tied the game at one, converting a Jeff Carter pass.

Defence prevailed in the third, as neither team could solve the netminders.

In the first overtime period, Alexandre Bolduc’s (Montreal, QC) first goal of the tournament gave Canada the 2-1 win and a spot in Tuesday’s gold medal match-up. Daniel Carcillo of King City, ON, set-up Bolduc’s overtime winner.

Munce stopped 33 shots en route to the victory between the pipes.
Canada will face Slovakia in the gold-medal game after a 2-1 shootout victory over Russia earlier in the day.
