But while most of the contestants are only fighting for the crown, one Scottsdale woman is also fighting for her life. In July, 25-year-old Kristina Anderson was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of ovarian cancer and began chemotherapy treatments just three days later. As she continues to battle the disease, Anderson said preparing for the pageant has been an escape for her. Miss Arizona USA pageant is a little different than the county fair pageants Im used to, Anderson said. With her family living in Illinois, Anderson has found her support system in an unexpected place the doctors office. One of Andersons nurses, Sandy LeDuke, has been helping her focus on pageant details. Im just kind of along for the ride, LeDuke said. I went with her to pick out some dresses and things. If both cancer and the upcoming pageant werent enough to think about, Anderson is also struggling to pay for her treatments. Her insurance has denied her the specific coverage she has needed for the last six months. Fortunately, fundraisers have been set up in Scottsdale to help Anderson pay some of her medical bills. Though Anderson still has a long way to go, she hopes her journey to Miss Arizona will help inspire others to keep fighting too. Just be positive and be grateful for what you have, Anderson said.

“The good news is we came on as the game went on. We scored two goals, we put a ton of pressure on them at the end We need to start faster.” Canada had the edge in offensive zone time in a scoreless first period, netted two goals in the second and pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the third. The USA broke through with a two-player advantage power play goal at mid-third, cut the deficit to one with 5:31 remaining and drove hard to the finish. Those final minutes included not only several good USA chances but a skirmish that earned two players on each team five-minute roughing majors and game misconducts after USA forward Jocelyne Lamoureux collided with Canada goalie Shannon Szabados at 16:53. Szabados sprawled on the ice and her teammates came to her defense, setting off a lengthy tussle in the corner. “It happens from time to time,” said longtime Canadian team member Hayley Wickenheiser of the scuffle, recalling a 2010 incident. In the first period, Canada had a 5-4 edge in shots that failed to reflect its territorial control. The USA’s game was disjointed but the Americans’ speed still led to a couple of quality chances that Szabados (15 saves) rejected. Ouellette sent Canada into a 1-0 lead at 4:16 of the second, converting Jayna Hefford’s cross-slot power play pass. Only 1:21 later, Bailey Bram knocked in Canada’s second goal during a goal-mouth scrum.
