August 09, 2018

WOLFVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA (August 9, 2018) –
Canada Women’s Under-20 head coach Jack Hanratty has named his starting roster to face England U-20 on Friday in the second game of the 2018 Tri-Nations Cup

“We have a quick turnaround from our battle with the USA, but everyone is eager to get back on the field again,” said Hanratty from Nova Scotia.
“England are an incredibly experienced side with multiple players with full international caps, which is exactly the competition that we want to have,” he added.
Canada is fresh off a 36-12 victory over USA U-20 on Tuesday evening to open the three-team tournament, while England, having landed in Nova Scotia a few days ago, will be playing in their first match.
Canada will once again be captained by Victoria, BC’s Sophie de Goede.
