SWITZERLAND rallied to beat Sweden 4-3 to claim their country’s first ever Olympic women’s hockey bronze with the winner coming from 15-year-old Alina Muller.

Muller, who is the third youngest hockey player to play in the Winter Olympics, capped the scoring for the Swiss with an empty net goal in the third period today at the Bolshoi Ice Dome.

Sweden built a 2-0 lead at the end of the second but were outscored 4-1 in third by the Swiss.

Switzerland won a bronze medal in the 2012 world championship, but the Olympic bronze is their first ever in women’s hockey.
