Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - There was clearly no looking ahead for the U.S. womens hockey team. The Americans accounted for the first 26 shots in their semifinal against Sweden and rolled to a 6-1 victory, earning a spot in the gold medal game on Thursday against either Canada or Switzerland. Alex Carpenter, Kacey Bellamy and Amanda Kessel scored to stake the Americans to a 3-0 lead before the Swedes even registered a shot against U.S. goaltender Jessie Vetter late in the opening period. The United States outshot Sweden by a whopping 70-9 count in the rout. Monique Lamoureux, Megan Bozek and Brianna Decker also scored for the Americans, who havent won gold since womens hockey made its Olympic debut at the 1998 Games in Nagano. Sweden has just one victory in 28 meetings with the U.S., but it was a big win -- a 3-2 shootout triumph in the 2006 Olympic semifinals. The Americans gained a measure of revenge four years later with a 9-1 rout of the Swedes in the 2010 Olympic semis. Anna Borgqvist was credited with the lone goal for Sweden late in the contest, spoiling Vetters shutout bid. Vetter finished with just eight saves. Valentina Wallner started in net for Sweden and was pulled after yielding five goals on 47 shots. Kim Martin Hasson turned aside all but one of the 23 shots she faced in relief, including a penalty shot by Jocelyne Lamoureux late in the third. The Americans grabbed a 1-0 lead on a power play. Kelli Stack carried the puck through the offensive zone along the right wing and circled behind the net before firing a pass into the slot for Carpenter, whose shot was headed wide but deflected off the skate of a Swedish defender and slid into the net. Bellamy increased the advantage just 1:06 later when a blast from the left point eluded a screened Wallner, and Kessel chipped in a rebound from the left side of the crease with 8:41 remaining in the period to make it 3-0. The Swedes took a timeout after the third goal and had a couple of chances on the power play late in the period, but managed just one harmless shot. An interference penalty on Swedens Pernilla Winberg early in the second period led to Monique Lamoureuxs power-play goal, and Bozeks point blast slid under Wallner with 7:43 left in the second for a 5-0 cushion. Wallner was pulled soon after. The Swedes finally snuck a shot past Vetter, as Borgqvist deflected an Emma Eliasson point shot into the back of the net with 6:56 remaining. The Americans had a hard time beating Martin Hasson, who made a nice pad save on Jocelyne Lamoureuxs penalty shot attempt. Lamoureux tried a spin move in front of the crease and Hasson kept the right pad extended to turn aside the backhand attempt. Martin Hasson finally yielded a goal with 3:02 to play when Deckers shot from the slot rang off the crossbar and Swedish defenseman Emilia Andersson inadvertently kicked it into her own net.

He won the Australian PGA Championship in 2011, also following a three-way playoff.Scott had four opportunities to win the Joe Kirkwood Cup with birdie putts during the playoff but failed to make any. When he missed a four-foot putt for par on the seventh playoff hole, it allowed Chalmers to seal the win with a near tap-in.Just phenomenal, Im worn out, the 41-year-old Chalmers said. I was all over the place ... really excited and thrilled.The playoff was the longest for a top-tier tournament in Australia.On the third playoff hole, Ormsbys bid for a second pro winn faded as he went wide on his approach.ddddddddddddIt was nice to get into the playoff there, Ormsby said. I didnt think I was going to get in, but yeah, a little bit disappointed.Chalmers putting proved to be the difference after he made eight birdies during his fourth round to post a tournament-low round.It ended a disappointing three tournaments in four weeks in Australia for Scott, who announced Friday that he and his wife were expecting their first child in February.Last year, Scott won the Australian PGA and Australian Masters and lost the Australian Open — the third leg of the Australian Triple Crown and the final Australian major of the season — when Rory McIlroy birdied the 18th hole on the final day at Royal Sydney.This year, Scott failed to defend his PGA and Masters titles. And he played two weeks ago in Sydney when American Jordan Spieth shot a final-round 63 to win by eight strokes at the Australian Open. Scott was nine strokes behind at The Australian and was tied for fifth.Scott said Sunday that his short irons werent good enough.I didnt hit it close enough today to the hole, Scott said. It wasnt like I missed 10 footers today all day long. When you hit it outside 25 feet, there is almost the same chance you are going to three-putt as two-putt on tour. You have to hit it closer.
