Bredin keeps Canada in running for water polo bronze

  • Print

Goalkeeper Serena Bredin of Winnipeg backstopped Canada’s national women’s water polo team Friday to a berth in the bronze medal final at the Pan Pacific women’s water polo championship in Melbourne, Australia.

Bredin made eight saves in net for Canada, which beat Brazil 19-3 on Friday in its final preliminary round game. Canada finished the round robin with two wins, two losses and a tie. Canada will meet China in the bronze medal game on Saturday.

The score in the game against Brazil was 2-2 after the first quarter but Canada scored 11 unanswered goals over the next two quarters to lead 13-2.

"We controlled the game,’’ said Canada’s head coach Patrick Oaten in a media release. ‘’We were better on the power play today, and we will need to continue to work on it going forward. We are looking forward to tomorrow's game versus China."

The USA and Australia will play for gold on Saturday.
