Korea, Japan both have reasons to celebrate

History was made Wednesday in PyeongChang when Japan defeated Korea, 4-1, in the preliminary round. Japan secured its first ever Olympic victory in its third Olympic appearance, while the crowd went bonkers after Korea netted its first goal of the opening round. Hanae Kubo and Shoko Ono scored for the Japanese, but Randi Griffin stole the spotlight with the first goal in Korean Olympic hockey history. The atmosphere was electric as Griffins shot trickled past Japans goaltender at 9:31 of the second period to make the score 2-1.
