Pergine, Italy - Katie Augustine (West Chester, Ohio/Miami University) scored the game-winning goal, Hayley Williams (Crete, Ill./Robert Morris University) tallied a goal and an assist and goaltender Katie Vaughan (Pittsburgh, Pa./Penn State University) turned away 37 shots to help the U.S. Women's National University Team earn a 3-1 win over Japan in the bronze medal game of the 2013 Winter World University Games.

The medal is the first for the United States in either men's or women's competition at the Winter World University Games.

"We couldn't be happier with how this group represented their country during this tournament, both on and off the ice," said Mo Stroemel, head coach of the 2013 U.S. Women's National University Team. "This is a moment none of us will forget. We are extremely happy to bring a medal home to the United States."

Monica Korzon (Ann Arbor, Mich./University of Michigan) opened the scoring at 17:03 of the first period when she struck for an even-strength goal. Ramey Weaver (Eagle River, Alaska/Robert Morris University) was credited with the lone assist on the play. Japan then knotted the score with 11 seconds remaining in the opening stanza.

The teams played a scoreless second period, setting the stage for Team USA's third-period heroics.

Augustine found the back of the net to put the U.S. in front for good at 2:30 of the final frame. Williams and Morgan McGrath (Mayfield Village, Ohio/Miami University) also contributed to the goal. Williams then scored into an empty net with just three seconds remaining to cap the victory.
