    Canada downs Japan 5-1 at Pacific Cup

    Canadian women must now await result of U.S.-Australia game

     NEWCASTLE, Australia (CSA) -- Canada's Women's World Cup team wrapped up play at the Pacific Cup with a 5-1 win over Japan today. The win gives the Canadians a 4-1 record at the six-team tournament. They are in first place pending the result of the Unites States' game against Australia on Sunday.

     The Americans post a 3-1 mark heading into their final game, having lost only to the Chinese. Canada beat China on June 8 for the first time in its history, guaranteeing a second-place finish at worst. A US win over Australia would allow them to win the tournament on the strength of their 9-1 win over Canada on June 2.

     Sixteen-year-old striker Christine Sinclair opened the scoring for Canada in the third minute with a header for her sixth goal of the competition and ninth tally in only 11 international games. Veteran striker Silvana Burtini contributed two goals in the 27th and 33rd minute.

     Christine Latham added a fourth for Canada with a penalty in the 34th minute, but Harue Sato managed to pull one back for Japan after the Canadians failed to clear the ball in the 42nd minute.

     The score remained 4-1 until the 87th minute when Japanese defender Wang Lipeng deflected a shot from Canadian substitute Andrea Neil past her own goalkeeper.
