Korea v Canada 3-1 (1-0)
Korea started into their first classification match strong, not leaving Canada with much space. Canada struggled to get their feet on the ground for some time. Nonetheless, Korea couldn't build up a convincing lead, scoring only a lone first half goal through their most reliable and leading scorer, Kim Hyun Ji.
Canada came back with verve from the break however and started to challenge their two time champion opponents. They were soon able to get on the scoreboard when Stephanie Norlander put a ball past second goalkeeper Han Mi Jin and proceeded to hold Korea to the draw for the biggest part of the second half.
A late double strike from Cho Hye Jin and Cha Ye Sol, who scored within less than a minute, however put the Korean team ahead for good. The clock ticked down and Canada could not come back from the blow. The match ended 3-1 for Korea, sending the Asian team into the 9-12th place bracket, while Canada will be playing for 13-16th place.
Voices after the match:
Ian Rutledge, Coach Canada: "It was an exeptional performance from both teams, and that's what international hockey is about, and that's what the Junior World Cup is about. It's an opportunity for the girls to play international hockey against different styles and think that both teams played an exceptional style. We played against a well structured Korean team, our performance was solid, but as the game was even, it could go either way, and that's what happened. The most important thing for the next game is to be the same team and keep our structure and stick to the game plan. The girls are doing pretty well. It's just a matter of keeping a good structure."
