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.

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.
