Dudes et Dudettes,

I was at Frank Clair Stadium yesterday to watch Canada's National U19 girls soccer team, defeat the US National U19 girls soccer team, in the second overtime, to win the gold medal in the FIFA CONCACAF Championships.

It was a very exciting game, and the Canadian girls were full measure for their victory, finally dominating the play, before scoring the winner.

The Canadian team played a 4 player back line, with two center fullbacks. #15 Kara Lang was solid at center fullback, while her partner at center "D" #5 Emily Zurrer (I think), was equally outstanding.

Great effort ladies!

The Canadian victory over the US team, halted the US team's 13 game unbeaten streak.
