Canadian women's soccer team beats South Korea 1-0PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Andrea Neil's header off a corner kick in the 71st minute gave Canada a 1-0 victory over South Korea in the semifinals of the U.S. Women's Cup soccer tournament Friday night.
Canada plays in Sunday's championship game against the winner of the other semifinal between the United States and Mexico.
The Americans have won the tournament all six years it has been held.
Neil's goal was set up by Sharolta Nonen's corner kick. Canada was awarded the kick when Christine Sinclair missed a point-blank shot in front of the goal, and after the ball bounced off keeper Ho Jung Jung, a South Korean player booted it out of bounds.
