While Trinidad and Tobago held firm through the hour mark and survived a missed penalty by Jessie Fleming, the floodgates soon opened as Julia Grosso scored her first-ever Canada goal in the 67th minute, then added a second moments later to give Les Rouges a healthy 3-0 lead.
Questions of goal-scoring circled this team ahead of the match, but those were answered loudly, as Fleming, Janine Beckie and Jorydn Huitema all found the back of the net to bring Canada to a 6-0 victory.
