Erin Woods and Meaggan Wilton posted the hits for Canada, with Woods' hit being a lead-off double in the second inning.

Team USA scored two runs in the third, four in the fourth and one the fifth, out-hitting Canada 9-2 and taking advantage of four Team Canada errors.

RBI-singles from Ambrosi and O'Brien-Amico opened the scoring for the USA in the third, and Ambrosi struck again with a two-run double in the fourth. Bustos also plated a run for the USA in the fourth when she hit a single to score Jennifer McFalls, who opened the inning up a single of her own. The final run of the game came via a bases loaded walk to Teri Klement, which forced McFalls in from third.
