    Robinson cracks Canadian side

    By The Halifax Chronicle-Herald

     Midfielder Leah Robinson of Lower Sackville was one of only 16 players named to Canada's under-19 soccer team this week.

     Robinson, who plays in the women's senior league with the Nova Scotia Canada Games squad, will go on tour with the national team in Greensboro, N.C., beginning Aug. 16.

     Canada has exhibition games scheduled against the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Duke.

     "I think she did very well in the camp the last time we were together in May," said Lewis Page, an assistant coach with the national under-19s. "She did well in terms of her ability in the centre midfield, her work rate and her overall leadership."

     Her selection to Team Canada will add to an already busy month of soccer for Robinson, who leads the women's senior league with 10 goals.

     She leaves today for an Atlantic Canada Games tournament in Antigonish and then reports for her first season of U.S. college at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond on Tuesday before going to Greensboro.

     "It's a big thing for her," Canada Games coach David Douglas said of her upcoming tour with Canada.
