Men’s Jr. Team Win’s In First Match At USA Test Series

November 13, 2010

Canada  –  2      USA  –  0

The Canadian athletes settled right into the game plan with confidences and a high work rate. Canada introduced quick continuous rotation up front due to the 1:30 pm start and hot dry condition. This paid dividends with a field goal at the 9 th minute by # 3 – Josh Brown. Most of the first half the USA sustained ball possession outside the Canadian half court zone earning 3 penalty corners. Canada’s defence was able to fend off the USA attacks and had several scoring chances of their own with fast counter attacks.

The score at the end of the 1 st half was Canada 1 – USA 0.

Canada built on the confidences of the 1st half with more ball possession in the USA zone which earned Canada’s second goal off a penalty corner at the 55 minute scored by # 6 – Tyler Klenk.

The score at the end of the 2nd half was Canada 2 – USA 0.
