Kelli Stack and Jen Schoullis each recorded a hat trick to help lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to a 13-0 win over Japan in its second game of the International Ice Hockey Federation Twelve Nations Invitational Tournament Series.

“Japan’s pressure all over the ice was good for us and challenged our puck movement,” said Katey Stone, head coach of the 2011 U.S. Women’s National Team. “It was also good to see young kids like Hannah Brandt and Milica McMillen have strong games.”

Stack contributed to all four U.S. first-period goals. She opened the frame with her first goal of the tournament at 5:17. Stack assisted on Jenny Potter’s (née Schmidgall) tally at 8:05 and closed the period with two more markers to pick up a natural hat trick.

Potter’s goal marked her 100th career goal for Team USA, making her just the sixth player in U.S. history to reach the 100-goal plateau.

Julie Chu struck at 9:56 of the second period to put the U.S. ahead, 5-0. Jillian Dempsey added a marker at 15:31 with help from Kasey Boucher’s second assist of the night and Kacey Bellamy’s third assist of the game.

The U.S. struck again just 16 seconds into the third period off of the stick of Meghan Duggan. Jen Schoullis scored three times in the final frame, while Hilary Knight and Lisa Chesson each light the lamp as well.

U.S. netminder Molly Schaus made nine saves in the shutout effort.

The U.S. Women’s National Team next plays Switzerland Saturday (Aug. 27) in its third of six games at Vierumäki Arena.
