Women's National Team kicks off the Qwest Tour

Team USA shuts down WCHA All-Stars with 6-1 victory


USA's Jinelle Zaugg-Siergiej (Eagle River, Wis.) tapped in the first goal at 1:25 giving the U.S. an early lead over the All-Stars. Team USA added three more goals in the first while the All-Stars struggled to find an opening in their defense.

After another goal in the second, U.S. goaltender Jesse Vetter maintained the 5-0 lead until the WCHA got one past her on a power play. USA's Julie Chu answered the point with one of her own making the final 6-1 in favor of the U.S.

"It was a good all-around game," said Mark Johnson, head coach for Team USA. "We had a nice crowd and it was fun for the players to see some of their friends and former teammates on the ice. It was a great start to the Qwest Tour."
