"We're making sure that water quality is being monitored. and also hygiene is being monitored", said Sung Baik You, spokesman for the Games organising committee. It didn't help that the Koreans also played much better.

In a follow-up on the norovirus outbreak at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, Korean health officials now put the number of confirmed cases at 261, as of Friday, with 111 cases reported from the Horeb Youth Centre, 74 from PyeongChang and 76 from Gangneung. "We've had a couple of good games, but we've got our toughest hockey coming up and we know that".

Korea had the first shot with the crowd noise rising as Young Jun Lee skated toward the Canadian end. Nobody expected us to do well, and then we're giving these teams a run for their money.

The Swiss, the 2014 bronze medalist, came into the quarterfinals undefeated in winning Group B and had given up only two goals in three games.

Shin So Jung made 51 saves after giving up a hat trick to Alina Muller in the first period of the opener against Switzerland. Korea, which had 19 shots for the game, seemed to grow in confidence as Canada failed to add to its slim lead.

The Swiss finish out group play on Sunday against the Czechs, while the Koreans meet Canada.

Goaltender Ben Scrivens has a 1.92 GAA and.920 save percentage, starting each of Canada's games to date. She played 13 minutes, 33 seconds.

Lapierre made it 3-0 at 3:43 of the third, slipping the puck between Dalton's legs after heading to the goal on a solo rush down the wing. Forward Wojtek Wolski, who scored twice in his team's tournament-opening 5-1 victory over Switzerland, was sent in alone with his team shorthanded and backhanded a shot off the post.

The Korean team, coached by Seoul-born former NHLer Jim Paek, features six Canadians: Dalton, defencemen Bryan Young of Ennismore, Ont., Eric Regan of Whitby, Ont., and Alex Plante of Brandon, Man., and forwards Brock Radunske of Kitchener, Ont., and Michael Swift of Peterborough, Ont.
