The Czech team has not yet lost at the tournament, having dealt successively with Hungary, Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Finland in the quarter-finals in the basic group.

In the historic semi-final, in which the Czechs made it for the first time in history, the group around captain Alena Mills ran into the Americans, who, together with the Canadians, have so far been the only two teams to dominate the championship.

And that the American women do not want to allow a sensation, it was clear from the opening minutes. The favorites outplayed their rivals and took the lead in the eighth minute when Taylor Heise scored with a precise shot from the space between the circles.

Immediately after, Mlýnková and Mrázová could have equalized, but their chance did not end with a goal. On the other side, a moment later, the ready Hayley Scamurra succeeded and it was already 0:2.

Less than a minute later, Amanda Kesselová drove alone on the Czech goalkeeper Klára Peslarová, and the Americans already led by three goals. In the 15th minute, Hilary Knight got through on the power play and things did not look good at all with the Czech chances. Knight and Alex Carpenter added more goals in the last two minutes of the first period – 0:6.

Czech reduction

The Czech Republic went into the second period with a new goalkeeper, when Peslarová was replaced by Blanka Škodová. But even she did not keep a clean sheet for long, when Kesselová surpassed her with her second goal seven minutes into the game.

In the middle of the match, the Czechs managed to reduce the puck when Klára Hymlárová literally pushed the puck behind the goal line, but immediately afterwards Kesselová restored her team’s seven-goal lead and completed the hat trick.

In the last part, Caroline Harvey increased it to 1:9, and Heise completed the unpopular number 1 in the Czech net.

The Czechs thus lost to the USA 1:10 in the fight to advance to the finals and will play for bronze on Sunday. Their opponents will be the loser of the second semi-final between Canada and Switzerland.
