06.07.2010 | Lukas Peroutka

Team France scored three goals in second half to brush aside Team Finland´s solid resistance. Finns held their opponents for whole first half, but paid a heavy price for their penalties. Sandrine Rangeon was a star for France, scoring two power play goals.

Team Finland could not equal their opponent in a number of players, but they certainly did equal the determination, passing ability and skating in the first half. France had some difficulty in creating goalscoring chances, but in the 4th minute of the game, Rangeon´s shot from the right crease on a power play was good enough to beat the Finnish goalie.

Finns managed to equalize after ten minutes thanks to Emmi Jokipelto, who netted a close range rebound after some good work in a goal crease. Rest of the first half was very even without major chances and the score stayed equal.

France´s Sophie Jupillat scored the winning goal just one minute into the second half with a nice shot under the crossbar. Team Finland had their best chance for an equalizer in 26th minute during a double power play, but Lind´s slapshot from the center was saved by Binet in Franch goal. Finns paid for their indiscipline late in the game after Sandrine Rangeon converted another power play and Drici then put a stamp on a final result with an empty net goal. “We played pretty well, the game was close, but the win was too far,” said Finnish captain Anna Lind.
