Great Britain's Run Ends With Loss to Canada

COVENTRY, England -2007 Karen Bardsley Mug The Olympic run for the Great Britain women's soccer team and former Titan Karen Bardsley came to an end on Friday afternoon in Coventry as first-half goals by Jonelle Filigno and Christine Sinclair propelled Canada to a 2-0 win and a date with the United States in the semifinals.

Bardsley finished with four saves for the match, and 17 for the tournament, as the host side advanced to the quarterfinals in their first-ever Olympic tournament appearance.

Filigno volleyed home a corner in the 12th minute to give the Canadians a 1-0 and Sinclair's 140th international goal off a curling free kick in the 26th minute was more than enough as Canada became the first time to score against Great Britain in the Olympics after it had gone unscored upon in three pool play matches prior to Friday.

Great Britain, playing without star Kelly Smith due to injury, outshot Canada, 13-9, but put only five of its shots on frame as Erin McLeod made five saves to record the clean sheet and advance her side to the semis on Aug. 6.
