The Korean women’s ice hockey team has won three consecutive World Championships without hesitation.
The Korean national team, led by coach Kim Do-yoon, beat Slovenia 4-2 in the Division 1 Group B (3rd division) of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Women’s World Championship held at the ice rink at the Gwanggyo Sports Center in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 20th.
South Korea, which previously defeated Italy 2-1 after a bloody extra-time battle and defeated Poland 4-0, maintained its first place with 2 wins and 1 consecutive win (8 points).
The winning team of this tournament will be promoted to the second division (Division 1 Group A), and Korean women’s ice hockey will challenge promotion for the first time.
Korea, ranked 19th in the world, has two games left to play against England (23rd) and Kazakhstan (21st), which are lower ranked than Korea.
Italy (19th) is closely chasing us with 7 points, but if we beat England and Kazakhstan without overtime, we will secure the championship on our own.
South Korea started the game uneasily, conceding the opening goal to Sarah Confidenti 5 minutes and 41 seconds into the game.
After 2 minutes and 45 seconds, Han Soo-jin’s goal turned the game around, and Lee Eun-ji’s goal at 7 minutes and 29 seconds in the second period turned the game around.
In the third period, Park Jong-ah and Lee Eun-ji’s consecutive goals extended the score to 4-1, and Korea gave Confidence a goal, but it was already a win. 토토사이트
