Canadian Women advance to World League Round 3

The Canadian Women's National Team advanced to World League Round 3 last month, after a thrilling sudden death shootout victory over Chile in the tournament's semi-final. Canada then went on to face Ireland in the final, and while it did not have any qualification implications, it was still a hard fought and tight battle. In the end, Ireland just managed to edge out Canada in yet another shootout. Canada finished the tournament with a 4-2-0 record.

BC's own Kaitlyn Williams and Hannah Haughn were given awards at the end of the tournament, earning top goalkeeper of the tournament and best young player of the tournament, respectively.
