Yes, all women (and all men) have plenty to celebrate on Good Friday, thanks to Natalie Spooner.

The Olympic gold medallist scored two goals in the IIHF women's world hockey championships semifinal game, but it was her second backhanded shot that cemented the team's 3-0 victory over Finland.

This dangle was particularly sweet for Spooner, who competed on the second season of "The Amazing Race Canada" last summer, where she and teammate Meaghan Mikkelson notoriously flubbed a hockey shoot-out challenge in Winnipeg. Then, it took them 57 attempts to score five goals, but this time, Spooner showed tremendous strength on the ice.

Team Canada will now face their longtime rivals, the United States, in Saturday's final in Sweden.

According to the Canadian Press, this marks the 16th championship match-up between the two teams. Last year, the Canadian women's team defeated the American squad in the gold medal match at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, in a 3-2 overtime victory.

Go Canada, go!
