ND's Lamoureux twins help lead USA Women's Hockey team to gold

By  | 

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - For the first time since 1998 the U.S. A. Women's Hockey team has beaten Canada for the gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

And, a pair of North Dakotan's played a big part in the final moments of the game.

In the third period grand forks native Monique Lamoureux-Morando broke away to shoot a game tying goal.

After that, the game went to a scoreless overtime, then to a shootout. And we have reaction from Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson on what it's like to score that game winning goal.

Take a listen.

"I was just so happy I could help in any way possible, I've pictured and visualized moments like that thousands of times and just to get the nod and the coach threw me out there, there was no doubt it was gonna go our way," said Jocelyne Lamoureux, Team USA Hockey.

Jocelyne and her sister, Monique were members of the past two U.S. Women's Olympic Teams that took home silver medals in 2010 and 2014.

They lost both of those games to Canada, but last night the sisters and all of Team U.S.A. finally got their redemption.
