The United States remained undefeated in resounding fashion at the women's hockey world championships Saturday, defeating Switzerland 8-0 in Espoo, Finland.
Former Gophers player Dani Cameranesi scored two goals and had an assist, and former Gophers player Amanda Kessel scored two goals. U.S. goalkeeper Maddie Rooney, from Andover, got the shutout in her first appearance of the tournament, but she faced only six shots.
The U.S., winner of four consecutive world titles, remains undefeated through three games and atop Group A. It will wrap up pool play Tuesday against Russia. Quarterfinals begin Thursday.
"We stuck to our game plan, put a lot of pressure on the Swiss back end and we were rewarded with a win tonight," U.S. coach Bob Corkum said. "We're going to enjoy some time off tomorrow and be ready to take on Russia on Tuesday."
