Chace, Team USA win second straight Paralympic hockey gold

Hamton Falls' Taylor Chace is wearing a gold medal - again.

Chace took a regular shift in Team USA's 1-0 victory on Saturday over Russia in the championship contest of the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The U.S. became the first team to win consecutive gold medals in the Paralympics. Chace, who took up sled hockey through the University of New Hampshire's Northeast Passage program, played for that 2010 team, too.

Josh Sweeney scored the lone U.S. goal, at the 9:28 mark of the second period, picking up a loose puck and beating Russian goalie Vladimir Kamantcev.

The Americans allowed only six shots on goal and goalie Steve Cash stopped all of them, including a couple of testers late.
