Women’s World League Super Final: Day 2 Recap

The Canadian women’s team recorded its second win of the tournament by defeating Australia 8-4. From the start, Canada had the game under control, thanks to the experience of its players. In the first quarter, Canada’s defense kept Australia scoreless while taking 2-0 lead (Fournier and Bekhazi). In the second quarter, Australia managed to score three goals in a short period of time, but Canada’s early lead was difficult to overcome. The score was 4-3 at halftime with goals by Robinson and Eggens in the second quarter. The Canadian women had a solid third quarter adding two more goals to their lead to make it 6-3 (Lemay-Lavoie and Bekhazi). Canada controlled the last quarter, limiting the Aussies to only one goal, with Christmas and Eggens both scoring to help their team record their second victory of the Super Final Tournament. The Canadian women will play their next game June 7 at 7:00 am (EST) against the host nation, China.

“We were able to control the game from the beginning. We played our defensive system really well and it paid off. We are very satisfied with what we were able to accomplish, considering we didn’t have a lot of time to practice together as a group.”
