SOCHI - The U.S. women's team was able to bottle up Canada's attack for two periods, but their rivals pulled away in the final frame, ultimately winning 3-2.
United States forward Hilary Knight gave her team a 1-0 lead, giving her a goal in every U.S. game so far (three in three contests). Anne Schelper scored a 3-2 goal with a little more than a minute left and Jessie Vetter made some big saves, but neither efforts were enough to secure a win.

MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.
Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.
But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.
"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
