Canadian Men’s Indoor Team Drops Third Game In Poznan To Australia

February 10, 2011


Canada vs. Australia: 1-5 (1-3)

Both teams arrived still looking for their first point of the competition. Canada had to play without defender Jeewanjot BATH, suspended for using an illegal glove in a previous game. Australia promptly grabbed control of the game and besieged the Canadian circle, but Canada managed to maintain their defensive structure, well backed by Shankar PREMAKANTHAN very active in goal. The score was finally opened in the 8th minute by Paul MACKINNON, receiving a ball with space in the circle, but the Canadian were soon level by Devohn TEIXEIRA. Australia maintained their domination and scored two quick goals to establish a commanding lead, which they carried into the break.

Australia scored again two quick goals early in second period, making it difficult for Canada to come back in the game, especially with their limited bench for substitution. No more goals were scored and Australia earned their first win of the competition (5-1).
