Canadian Men finish Commonwealth Games with victory

October 12, 2010 

The Canadian men’s national field hockey team finished their Commonwealth Games in 7th place after a 3-2 overtime victory over Team Malaysia Tuesday morning in Delhi.  The Canadians finish the tournament with an impressive two wins, two draws, and a single loss.

Both teams started the game strong and recorded two goals each to put the score at 2 – 2 at the end of the first half.  The Canadian goal scorers in the first half were Mark PEARSON (9th minute) and Iain SMYTHE (23rd minute).  The second half of the game saw a much tougher battle between both teams as they were each unable to score a goal. The game would need extra time to determine the winner and in the 76th minute of the match Jesse WATSON was the hero for Canada. 

This was a great tournament for many of the young players on the Canadian team and as a whole they showed they can compete with some of the top teams in the world.  The Men will spend a couple of more days in Delhi supporting other Canadian athletes before returning to Canada on the 15th of October.
