Canadian men match best finish ever at Commonwealth Games  

The Canadian men faced a lot of tough competition at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, where they ultimately finished in 6th place, matching their best finish ever at a Commonwealth competition (6th in Melbourne in 2006). Canada showed great strength against the strong New Zealand team with a 1-1 tie at halftime, but we're unable to get the win. After a disappointing loss to Malaysia, Canada defeated Trinidad and Tobago before heading into their final match against South Africa. With a 2-2 tie at half-time, South Africa came out strong in the second half scoring a few more goals and securing their 5th place finish over Canada. For an glimpse into the men's experience at the games, check out their blog posts on Facebook. For full results visit the Glasgow 2014 website.

Canadian women gain valuable experience at Commonwealth Games 

The Canadian Women's National team continue to grow and learn from every international competition, and the Commonwealth Games were no different. Canada came out strong in their first game against India, but were unable to secure the win. In a close match against South Africa, the game remained tied 0-0 until the end of the second half when South Africa scored two goals from which Canada was unable to recover. Things got better for Canada as they defeated Trinidad and Tobago 4-1 before heading into a tough match against the infamous New Zealand Black Sticks. Despite great effort by Team Canada, New Zealand dominated the game and later went on the win the Bronze medal. Canada ultimately finished in 8th place after a loss in shootouts to Malaysia.
