Canada improved to 2-0 at the world under-18 women’s hockey championship with a 4-1 win over Finland on Friday.

Tied 1-1 after two periods, Canada broke it open with three goals in less than 10 minutes in the third.

Charli Kettyle scored the winner 6:53 into the third before Maddi Wheeler and Émilie Lussier added to the lead.

“It was the best feeling ever,” Kettyle said of her first international goal. “When I saw it go in, I jumped up. I honestly couldn’t believe it, I was just speechless. The puck came up between Coops [Kendall Cooper] and I, and I got it, got over onto the right side and noticed the gap, and went for it.

“I’ve never experienced anything like this team in my life, and it’s something that you never want to end.”

Lindsay Bochna opened the scoring for Canada in the first.

Nelli Laitinen scored Finland’s lone goal in the second.

Goalie Kayle Osborne recorded the win for Canada, which outshot Finland 31-13.

“I think we showed a lot of character, learned a lot through the game,” Canada assistant coach Tara Watchorn said. “It got better and better and by the third period we figured out what was going to work for us, and the team really came together by the end.”

Canada returns to action on Sunday against the United States.
