Women’s World League Super Final : Day 4 Recap

Canada won a close battle against Japan to earn their spot in the semi-final. With their 9-5 victory, the Women’s National Team broke the top 4 at World League Super Final for the first time since 2009. Japan prepared really well for that game and they came out strong in the first quarter taking a 3-2 lead against the Canadians. Canada’s defense raised up their game into the second quarter and took the lead, but Japan fought their way back into the quarter to put the score at 5-5 at half-time. In the third quarter, McKelvey continued on her streak, adding one more goal on the board for the Canadian team. Monika Eggens scored from deep to put her team in front 7-5 heading into the fourth. Canada finished on a high note as they capitalized on their chances scoring twice on power plays (Sohi and Eggens). Canada will face Russia in the semi-final tomorrow at 5:40 am (EST). Live Stream is available via FINA TV (subject to change).
