- The Swiss women’s ice hockey team lost 4-0 in the World Cup semi-finals in Calgary.
- Goalie Andrea Brändli shows a solid performance and guarantees the best result in the World Cup for Switzerland against Canada.
- In the match for third place, coach Colin Muller’s team now faces Finland.
In the end, it was a 4-0 loss and elimination in the World Cup semi-finals – but the Swiss women’s team could still be satisfied with their performance. With 8 duels (and 8 defeats) in the World Championships with the Canadian national team, the Swiss conceded only a handful of goals.
Goalie Andrea Brändli played a key role in the low score against the four-time Olympic champion. The 24-year-old saved no less than 62 shots. In the 3-0 win through Melody Doust, she also had a lot of bad luck with a weird swerve that flew in an arc high over her head towards goal.

The initial decision was made by Canada, who were not completely convinced for the entire 60 minutes, in the first third: Renata Fast (6) and Daust (7) with their first goal 2-0 in 98 seconds.
Unfortunately, Switzerland was left without a hit in their eighth World Cup match against “Ahornblätter”. Coach Colin Muller’s team scored a total of 10 shots on goal, but most of them were harmless. Noemi Rehner missed the biggest chance in the final third, when she was outnumbered and could break into the opposing goal alone and failed at the post. Rebecca Johnston secured the final score 4-0 with a superb individual performance 5 minutes from the end.
On Tuesday evening (9:30 pm) the Swiss team will have a second chance to win a medal. In the match for third place, they face Finland, who lost to the United States 0-3 in the second semi-final. Meanwhile, the Americans are challenging their eternal rival Canada in the final.
