URU V CAN ( Round-robin ) WorldHockey Olympic Qualifier (Women) (2) (1)
Match Review URU - CAN 0-5
Canada did not waste any time to take the lead in the last game of the day, scoring on their first penalty corner by Stephanie HUME, with a hard hit over the falling goalkeeper after the initial shot was intercepted by the runner. They doubled their tally a few minutes later on another penalty-corner by Christine DePAPE, tapping over the line a ball pushed back three times by the Uruguayan defense, and were up 3-0 before twenty minutes of play, this time by Tiffany MICHALUK at the conclusion of another penalty-corner option.
With the support of the large local crowd, Canada was playing much better than at the beginning of the competition and had no trouble overwhelming the inexperienced South American team. They scored 2 more goals to finish with a comfortable win 5-0.
