Beautiful sunny conditions. Very physical match, umpires playing a lot of free kicks. If Canada had kicked straight it would be over at half time... will there be regrets?
2nd half underway. Ireland get their first goal but Bodashefsky hits back with 2 goals for Canada. Cloudy and cooler now.
A few high hits and quite heated, Ireland's star Laura Corrigan sent off yellow card after getting Aimee Legault high.
Last 1/4 about to start.
Ireland battling hard but again bogged down in defence. Canada will win the 2nd Women's International Cup.
Canada Northern Lights win IC14 Women's 5.8 (38) to Ireland 2.0 (12). Big celebrations on the field, plenty of support from Canada's men side.
Congratulations Canada, the new women's powerhouse. Impressive rise in just a few years, and the depth to bring two teams to IC14.
