Sister Act Leads To Gold

Sister Act Leads U.S. To Olympic Gold

Jocelyne Lamoureux finished off what her twin sister started near the end of regulation in the gold medal game between the United States and Canada. Jocelyn used a jaw-dropping, triple deke move on Canada's goalie in the shootout to give the United States a 3-2 victory and its first gold medal in Women's Olympic hockey since 1998.

It was the third Olympic Games Jocelyn Lamoureux competed in and most definitely the sweetest. She was on the wrong end of the first two gold medal games in 2010 and 2014, losing to Canada on both occasions.

The North Dakota natives, who have four highly-accomplished hockey-playing brothers, were a big part of the United States' march to the gold. Jocelyn had four goals in five games, including two that came just six minutes apart against the athletes of Russia. It established an Olympic record for shortest time between goals by anyone, men or women.

Monique came up clutch with the game-tying gold against Canada and earned the reputation as one of the best two-way players in the tournament.

The Lamoureux twins are the first born-and-raised North Dakotans ever to win a gold medal. Their father, Jean-Pierre, is a Canadian native who played hockey at the University of North Dakota.
