Well, Christine Sinclair didn't play because she's too valuable to Portland.

But Canada won the Sept. 26 game 2-0 on goals by Isabelle Morneau. That's right, defender Morneau.

The score was flattering to the Australians, who were lucky to go off with a 0-0 score at the half.

Once again, the Canadian midfielders had difficulty getting the ball to Charmaine Hooper, who had very few scoring opportunities. Her striking partner Kara Lang (who is less than half her age) had a lot more ball time, mainly because she dropped back into midfield to get possession and took it forward herself.
