Canada Loses Final Match in Canberra

August 7, 2009

Australia’s Kookaburras felt they had something to prove after Thursday afternoon’s tight 2-1 victory over Canada, and a score line reading 6-2 after the second match of the mini-series would indicate that they did.  Overall, the game was not as unbalanced as that result might indicate, but Canada’s few errors and mental lapses were costly.

Canada opened scoring on a penalty corner opportunity at the tenth minute, with Pete Short scoring on an option play…

Canada Ends Tournament Phase with a Fizzle

Playing for a third place finish in the 3 Nations Series, Canada lost 4-1 against Australia A.  Their lone goal came at the 58th minute.  With the team already down 3-0, Mark Pearson took a tough pass at the top of the opposition’s D and drove the ball inside, forcing a foot-foul.  On the ensuing penalty corner, Wayne Fernandes shot the ball straight in scoring his second goal of the tournament. 

Although game play was quite even, Australia proved to be more opportunistic as Jason Wilson scored the team’s first and last goals off a penalty corner and a stroke, respectively…
