Bangkok, Thailand - Canada's Women's Under-19 team opened the 2004 FIFA U19 Women's World Championship with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Group A opponent Australia this evening in steamy Bangkok, Thailand. Canada raced out to a two-goal lead early in the contest but Australia quickly grabbed a goal back in the first few moments of the second half. The Aussies searched hard for the equalizer, despite having their goalkeeper sent off midway through the second half, but they failed to find a way past Stacey VanBoxmeer. In the end it was Canada who walked away with full points and a share of top spot in Group A. Both teams looked tentative from the onset and seemed content to battle for control of the middle of the park. But after the 10 minute mark, the Canucks began to stretch the Aussie's and a goal seemed imminent. Brittany Timko was the first to get in behind the Australian back four but as she reached the top of the area, she was hurried into shooting earlier than she had wanted by the Australian defense. The resulting shot sailed high over the goal but the Coquitlam, BC native seemed buoyed by the service she was now receiving. More

After a harrowing journey of well over 26 hours through a host of time zones, Canadian right back Robyn Gayle was surprisingly composed when she sat down to chat with FIFA.com. Just minutes after arriving at the team hotel, the first Canuck to reach the Thai capital and home of Group A took time out to talk football and expectations on the eve of the finals.
"North Carolina to Vancouver, Vancouver to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to Bangkok," she wearily recounted her journey to the prestigious U-19s. "I don't know exactly how long it was, but it sure felt like a long time."
Though she is undecided about her major field of study at university in the United States, the first-year student is clear as day about how she would define success at the upcoming FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship Thailand 2004. More

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (CP) - The whistle had barely blown to begin overtime when Brazil's Cristiane Silva popped the ball over the outstretched hands of Canadian keeper Taryn Swiatek for the golden goal.
But when the shock wore off, Canada's young women's soccer team said they didn't measure success in wins and losses Friday after losing the gold-medal final at the Pan American Games 2-1 in overtime to Brazil.
"Twelve of these players are under 18 years of age, and they pushed a team, a team that I think will be one of the dominant teams in the World Cup this summer, really to the limit," said a pleased Canadian coach Ian Bridge. "And I think we'll keep on getting stronger." More

Canada's Pan American Games team advanced to Thursday's Gold Medal match by virtue of a nailbiting 3-2 vicory over CONCACAF rivals Mexico at the Estadio Olimpico in Santo Domingo last night. Canada, fielding a team with an average age of 18 years, 6 months, raced out to an early three goal lead but had to battle for the full 90 minutes in order to keep a determined Mexican side from levelling the score in the dying minutes of the contest.
From the opening whistle, the young Canadians pressured the Mexican defense and in the 3rd minute, that pressure seemed to have paid off. Kristina Kiss' inswinging corner appeared to have crossed the line before a Mexican defender pulled it out of the goal with her hand. Neither the goal nor the handball were called despite animated protests on and off the field. More
