Sweden are after yet another championship title on Sunday while Finland will return to play in the Women’s U19 WFC final that will happen in front of their home crowd. 

Latvia v Denmark 4-5

Morning in Lahti started with the first play-off match between Latvia and Denmark. In the second period it looked like Denmark will take the win, it did change latest in the third period when Marta Reke got Latvia to 4-4. Esther Juul Thomsen secured the win for Denmark by scoring on powerplay on the 49th minute.

Australia v Canada 9-6 (15th place)

Australia and Canada played in the first placement match of the 2024 U19 WFC. The game stayed even until the beginning of the third period. Katie Wright finished a hat-trick and was the leader of the match for her team Australia.

Sweden v Switzerland 4-3

What an exciting semi-final! Dana Misteli started the scoring for Switzerland on powerplay but Sweden equalised and took the lead. Ellen Lundin scored two goals in the game and even the strong end by Switzerland did not help them to qualify for the final.

Hungary v New Zealand 6-8 (13th place)

New Zealand were more hungry for the 13th place today and they got it. Loud support from the fans on site definitely helped them to shine and several players succeeded, especially Frances Coup who scored four goals in the game.

Czechia v Finland 2-3

Second semi-final offered several nervous moments for both teams. Czechia have shined throughout the event while Finland have still been searching for their best game. This semi-final went to overtime and Finland wanted to decide it fast: captain Milla Granlund scored after 51 seconds of play and Finland will play in the final after missing it in 2022!

Singapore v Italy 8-7 (11th place)

First ever Women’s U19 WFC for Team Singapore and they take home the 11th place. Italy came back to fight for the win but today there was not enough time to finish what they started and they finish the event in Lahti on 12th place.

Norway v Germany 4-3 

Second play-off game offered many interesting turns. Both teams were ready to play for the spot for 7th place game and gave their all. Finally, the winners had to be decided in the penalty shootout. Filippa Harnlund and Sol Julia Johansen succeeded and secured the win for Norway.

Slovakia v Poland 9-8 (5th place)

Teams that so often meet for the 5th place game, met there again. At first it looked like Slovakia will take the 5th place home rather easily as they were leading the game 5-0 in the first period. But Poland came back to the game and when Martyna Gradzka equalised after 52 minutes of play, nothing was clear. Finally Zuzana Mrazova scored the winning 9-8 goal for Slovakia and they could celebrate their fifth place in Lahti.
