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
