This was definitely a game of two halves, the first where Canada was dominant and the second where Brazil struck back and levelled the two quarters. It was all one-way traffic in the first two quarters with six different scorers for Canada before Ann Dow sent in one of her trademark goals from outside on right-hand catch. Then Brazil was stung into action, taking a timeout in the third and converting the goal one second outside extra to Andrea Henriques. Mari-Luc Arpin responded for Canada and then Brazil scored again through a determined centre forward Camila Pedrosa, who shot, had the shot blocked and then snapped in the rebound. Jana Salat scored from outside with less than a second on the clock for 9-2 at three-quarter time. Both teams took a timeout in the last quarter but could not score and Brazil had a penalty shot stopped by Canadian goalkeeper Whynter Lamarre.

Coach: Istvan Gorgenyi

Australia proved too classy for minnow Great Britain. The Olympic champion was shooting for a high goal difference but the British women were intent on denying them too many goals. It was a slow start at 2-0 for Australia but the second quarter of 5-1 proved the making of the game. GB
