BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The United States defeated Canada 3-0 Sunday to win the world sledge hockey championship.

Goaltender Steve Cash stopped all eight shots he faced. Declan Farmer broke a scoreless tie 2:58 into the third period for the U.S. Daniel McCoy and Joshua Pauls had the other goals.

Corbin Watson made 18 saves for Canada, which earned the silver medal.

The sport is also known as sled hockey, a game that was invented in the 1960s and allows those with physical disabilities to play hockey.
