“We came through some adversity, then started to calm down and play the game that we normally play. Going into the next game, we can definitely do what’s in our control and just play the game that we play.” – Brynn Masikewich

“We’re happy with the result, but as a team that’s driven by process, we turned the ball over too many times and gave up too many points. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to improve on both of those things against Argentina tomorrow.” – Jodi Gram, Head Coach

Canada’s next game is against host Argentina on Friday, June 9. Tip-off is set for 7:30 PM EST and the game will be streamed live here. Click here for the complete tournament schedule.
