Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando became heroes Thursday when they scored the game-tying and shootout-winning goals against Canada, finally securing a gold medal for the US for the first time since 1998.

The New York Post reports: America’s newest Olympics heroes deked their way into hockey lore Thursday in PyeongChang, about 6,000 miles from where they were raised in North Dakota, defeating a blood rival they could have walked to visit as they grew up.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando scored the game-tying and shootout-winning goals against Canada in the USA’s 3-2 gold-medal game, a pair of twins making a country and family proud — including, even, their Canadian father.

The report continues: In the shootout, Lamoureux-Davidson took the puck and faked a righty wrister. She pulled the puck left, then quickly right. All three moves seemed to fool Canadian goalie Shannon Szabados, who was left helpless on her back as Lamoureux-Davidson calmly guided the puck into the net.

Earlier, it had been Lamoureux-Morando who tied the game for the US, the twins combining to send America into gold — finally.
