Agosta ready to go for gold against U.S. in women's hockey
Canada and the United States will play for the gold in women's Olympic hockey Thursday at noon in Sochi.
One of the shining stars for the Canadian team is Meghan Agosta-Marciano of Ruthven, Ont.
She earned the spotlight with a two-goal performance against the arch-rival Americans last week, on birthday no less.
Now, after a 3-1 win over Switzerland in the semi-finals on Monday, Canada plays the U.S. in the gold medal game tomorrow.
Agosta told Windsor Morning host Tony Doucette she's getting lots of support from our area.
"There's a lot of people who actually sent me cards through my mom, which my mom brought from all the way back home in Ruthven," Agosta-Marciano. "I've been getting a lot of text messages, emails, things on Twitter, things on Facebook, and it's so amazing to know that I have so much support coming from back home, from my family and friends."
Kingsville Mayor Nelson Santos declared Thursday "hockey jersey day" in the town.
