Team Finland was victimized by a controversial call in the final of the Women's World Championship on Sunday.

The Finns thought they'd buried the winner against the United States in overtime, but officials handed U.S. goaltender Alex Rigsby a minor penalty for tripping, and what would have been the golden goal was disallowed.

A lengthy review came after the Finnish players had already celebrated.

The U.S. ultimately prevailed 2-1 in a shootout.
