Match Report

Canada took their time to get into the match, then scored two goals in less than 30 seconds, by Philip WRIGHT and Mark PEARSON, around the 7th minute mark. The third goal was for veteran Rob SHORT and the issue of the game was beyond doubt within ten minutes of play.

Singapore scored an excellent goal by Chia KAI BIN before Canada scored again, on penalty-corner this time by Scott TUPPER. They maintained their pressure on the Singaporean circle and increased their tally at regular interval, scoring 8 goals before half-time without exerted themselves too much.

Canada maintained their relentless pressure in second half, played nearly exclusively in the Singaporean half. They worked as much on their collective play and combinations as on their goal scoring, reached ten goals by Richard HILDRETH in the 45th minute of play and fifteen goals by Rob SHORT with two minutes to spare in the match.

Final score was 15-1, the same as India three days ago against the same Singaporean team, and the highest score for Canada in international match since their win 13-0 against Mexico at the 2000 Pan American Cup in Cuba.

Player of the Match was Mark PEARSON, who scored 5 goals for Canada today.
