In Game Four, the Canadians capitalize in the opening two minutes of the game to go ahead 1-0. Jessalyn Walkey stole the ball at the top of the circle and found herself walking in the circle alone and carried the ball past the goalie flicking it high into the mesh.
No penalty corners were awarded to either team. Chile had one near goal on a breakdown play that lead to a Chilean attacker with a wide open net but the ball was swept high and wide. Chilean midfielder, Daniela Infante was awarded a green card in the 33rd minute for talking back to the umpires.
It was much of the same in the second half, but Chile increased its pressure immensely. Canada managed to cling to their 1-0 lead. A bout of cards were given in the second half including green cards to Steph Jameson (CAN, 42 min) and Camila Caram (CHL, 64 min) as well as two yellow cards to Abigail Raye (CAN, 52 min) and Gabriela Retamales (CHL, 46 min).
