Finland won its tenth world championship in Espoo.
The Finnish team didn’t give Canada any chances in Ringete’s second World Cup final. Thanks to the encouragement of the home crowd, the Finns stormed to the gold with a score of 13-3.
It is no less than the eighth consecutive world championship and the tenth overall. The Finnish team’s most effective player of the night was the national team captain, also known from Naisleijon Susanna Tapaniwho scored five of the goals and assisted the other five.
Two matches are played in the final and the championship is decided based on points. So a draw would have been enough for Finland on Sunday to win the World Cup gold. The first part also ended with a Finnish celebration, but with the most moderate scores of 8–2. Tapani scored a hat trick in that game as well.
