ENGLAND WOMEN 27 Canada 19: Victory at the Red Rose Taste Park


England girls won Canada 27-19 and five attempts to win the Doncaster Castle Park in the second of three quilters international.

Red Roses advanced 15-7 in the break and scored a point three points lower than the opponent.

Hooker Lark Davies scored two goals in England's attempt.

Canada scored late in the second half through Elissa Alarie, but Kelly Smith and Abbie Scott started the game ahead of Courtney Holtkamp's late comeback.

Davis' two attempts have given her a game player and are pleased with the result, but England feel they can play better.
"Canada really brought us the game and we had to find a way to score," Davis said. "It takes a lot of effort to win, but we still have a lot of work to do.

"I knew that I was a physical player and I would be a good athlete, but our training was not very good, but we know it is really good to win a learning journey, but we can do better."

Simon Middleton, coach, said: "It was really hard. Canada brought exactly what we thought, was physically fit and went all the way to the end.

"We did a lot of testing, and we poured in a lot of balls, but there were some good players, and I thought the next player was a good player.

"We are ongoing, and we have had the experience and the packed experience that we have today, but the young players will learn a lot from it." We talked about squad efforts and the finisher from the bench. "
