CALGARY, AB - Canada's National Women's Under 22 Team defeated the USA 3-1 in Calgary, AB in the first of a three-game series the two teams will play this week in Alberta.

USA opened the scoring at Calgary's Father Bauer Arena with the only goal of the first as Jessica Tabb beat Tania Pinelli, of Hamilton, ON, from the slot at 2:46. Canada pressed but were unable to beat Melissa Glasser, in the USA net, and trailed 1-0 after 20 minutes despite outshooting their opponents 12-7.

Canada evened the score at 10:44 of the middle period, as Lori Shupak, of Sherwood Park, AB fired a rebound past USA goaltender Jackie MacMillan who had replaced Glasser only moments earlier in the USA net.

Canada scored twice in the final period to take a 3-1 lead. Cherie Piper, of Scarborough, ON, stole the puck from a pair of US defencemen and beat MacMillan at 3:52 while Canada was shorthanded. Dana Pretty, of Richmond, BC, scored from the point at 6:16 to give Canada a two-goal lead.

Pinelli held strong afterwards, making several key saves during a late USA powerplay to give Canada the 3-1 victory.

Canada and USA meet again on Friday, August 25th at 7pm at the Father Bauer Arena in Calgary, Alberta. The teams face off one final time in Medicine Hat, on Sunday, August 27th, 2000 at 6 pm.
