For the first time in 20 years, the U.S. Women’s hockey team has an Olympic gold victory to celebrate. American athlete Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson was the player responsible for the game-winning, triple-deke goal, allowing the U.S. team to beat Canada 3-2 and end the Canadian squad’s four-game gold-winning streak.

“It’s a dream come true, ” Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson told NBC News during a post-game interview. “We knew we were going to get it done … we believed.”

“We’ve played this game in our minds a thousand times and won it every which way,” her sister and fellow player, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, explained to the New York Times.

The last time the American U.S. Women’s hockey team secured a gold medal — and their very first — was in 1998, whenwomen’s hockey made its Olympic debut.
