The United States women’s ice hockey team enjoyed a 5-0 win over Finland in the semi-finals to remain on target for their first gold medal in 20 years.

Dani Camarensi scored twice, with Gigi Marvin, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Hilary Knight also finding the net.

It will be a third successive appearance in the gold medal match for the Americans, who have lost to fierce rivals Canada on each occasion.

The USA’s last gold medal in the women’s event came at Nagano in 1998.

Canada, winners at the past four Games, face the Olympic Athletes from Russia team in the other semi-final later on Monday.

Canada beat the USA in the preliminary stages and, should they reach the final, it will be the fifth time in six Olympics that the North American neighbours have contested the gold medal match.

The superpowers of women’s ice hockey have also dominated in the World Championships, meeting in every final since the competition began in 1990
