The USA defeats the Swiss women 6:0

The Swiss women also suffer a defeat in their second match at the World Championships. Just like the day before against the Czech Republic, they were defeated by the USA 6:0.While they were able to keep the game open for a long time the day before, today they were already 1:0 behind in the first minute - Alexandra Vakos had scored for the Americans. The USA repeatedly made use of their running qualities and caused problems for the Swiss defence. Seitz (10.) and Kilroy (13.) increased the lead to 3:0 before the first break.The game's disposition did not change in the middle third either. The USA dominated the game, Switzerland defended passionately but lacked the power to score in offence. The game was of course decided after 30 minutes and with the score at 0:6.Even the attempt to perhaps score a consolation goal in the final period was unsuccessful. But because the US team also failed to score another goal, the final score remained 0:6. The Swiss women continue their campaign on Monday (18:00). Canada, the reigning world champions, await, so the challenges are not getting any smaller.
