CANADA AVENGES POOL-PLAY LOSS TO USA AND EARNS FIRST WORLD CUP TICKET IN 28 YEARS
One goal off the stick of Amanda Woodcroft in the 15th minute of the game was all the difference.
Three quarters of hockey later, sticks we’re being tossed in celebration, athletes and coaches were embracing and tears of joy streamed down the Canadian faces. Canada has booked their ticket to the 2022 World Cup, ending a 28-year World Cup drought for the program.
Conratulations to Falcons Rob Short (coach) and Sarah McManus (player)
