Rebecca Wins Hockey Gold in Germany

Congratulations to Rebecca Johnston, whose National Under-22 hockey team won the Air Canada European Cup by defeating host team Germany in the final yesterday. The score was 5-1, with Rebecca notching a goal and two assists.

The Canadians reached the final by beating the Swiss 11-0, the Japanese 10-0, the Germans 5-0, and then again 5-1 in the final. The Swedes and Americans were not in the tournament.

By my count, Rebecca scored two goals and five assists in the four tournament games, plus an additional goal in the exhibition.

Rebecca Germany versus Canada

Rebecca Johnston got a goal and an assist last night as the Canadian Women's Under-22 hockey team beat Germany 5 to 0. Her goal came on a breakaway and is sounded like the game was close (1-0) until the start of the third period. The Canadian team will play their semi-final today. Way to go Rebecca!
