The Hodge-Podge Korean Hockey Squad Ends Olympic Run

The women’s inter-Korean hockey team finally scored a goal, but lost 4-1 to rival Japan

GANGNEUNG, South Korea—It took an American to score the first and only Olympic goal for Korea’s unified North-South women’s hockey team.

With nine minutes remaining in the second period of a showdown with bitter rival Japan, U.S.-born Randi Griffin sent a puck trickling between the pads of goalie Akana Konishi, putting the unified Korean team on the board for the first time in three games and sending an arena full of North and South Koreans into hysteria.
