Latham leads Canada past Argentina

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Christine Latham scored twice in a

three-minute span Wednesday night and Canada earned its first

Women's World Cup victory ever, beating Argentina 3-0.

Charmaine Hooper added a goal off a penalty kick as Canada (1-1)

remained in the hunt for a second-round berth.

Latham headed a hard shot that goalkeeper Romina Ferro blocked

but she pushed in the rebound with her right foot while falling

backward in the 79th minute.

In the 82nd minute, Kristina Kiss bent a direct kick past a wall

of three defenders to Silvana Burtini who passed to Latham who put

a low shot past Ferro from 7 yards.

Canada was awarded the penalty kick in the 18th minute after

Latham was tripped inside the penalty box by defender Mariela

Coronel. Hooper sent a hard shot to left side netting as Ferro

dived to her right.

Argentina (0-2) has not scored in its two games and cannot

advance past the first round.

Canada was winless in seven World Cup games, though the team did

earn a tie in each of the previous two tournaments.

The Argentines best chance came early in the second half when

Marisol Medina's shot from 12 yards was pushed wide right by

goalkeeper Tarry Swatted.
