HEINOLA, Finland  - Princeton freshman netminder Kimberly Newell won the gold and head coach Jeff Kampersal won silver as the pair faced off in the gold medal game of the 2013 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship this past weekend.

Newell made 39 saves in the win for the gold medal. She was a thorn in Kampersal's side as she turned away 19 shots, as the US outshot Canada 20-1 in the period. The US took a 1-0 lead in the first period. The second period was scoreless with the team's shot total nearly even. Canada tied the game with an extra attacker goal with 13 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime. Canada then scored 58 seconds into overtime for the win.

"We didn't get a very good start, they kind of took it to us in the first period and we had great goaltending by Kimberly Newell," Canadian coach Jim Fetter said. "We just talked to the girls about sticking to the plan and use our conditioning, and I think that's the one thing is, we were in pretty good shape and we were able to keep rolling lines and putting all kinds of pressure on them."

"I thought we had 22 leaders and 22 followers on our team," said Kampersal, head coach of Team USA. "They came together really quickly. They're incredible kids and players and they gave their heart and soul in this game. I'm proud of our team and I can't speak highly enough about the character of these girls."

The U.S. finished the tournament with a 4-1 record and outscored its opponents 36-2. Kampersal's squad is the first team in tournament history to not allow a goal during preliminary play. Canadian went 5-0 and outscored its opponents 24-4.

In six years of the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship, Team USA has captured three gold medals (2008, 2009 and 2011) and three silver medals (2010, 2012 and 2013). Hockey Canada has won the gold three times (2010, 2012, 2013) and the silver three times (2008, 2009, 2011).
