It’s a gold medal for the United States women’s hockey team, after their dramatic 3-2 win over Canada in a shootout early this morning in PyeongChang, South Korea. The team is captained by Danvers native Meghan Duggan, who went to the University of Wisconsin and now has a gold medal to go with her two silver medals, won in Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014. Kali Flanagan from Burlington is also a member of the U.S. team.
Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the game winning goal in the shootout and 20-year-old goalie Maddie Rooney made the subsequent save to seal the victory! Jocelyn’s twin sister Monique Lamoureux-Morando scored in the third period to tie the game at 2-2 and setting the stage for his identical twin to win it. Monique is married to Malden native Anthony Morando, who used to train me at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning in Woburn. Anthony was a football standout at Malden Catholic and then at Springfield College!
We talked to Anthony “LIVE” from PyeongChang this morning!
