TORONTO -- Canada was on the verge of elimination, two goals and just 45 minutes away from being ousted from its most important tournament, and on home turf. Kevin Porter Jersey . Clearly the Canadians werent willing to let it end. Trailing 2-0 to Finland at halftime, Nichelle Prince scored the game-winner as Canada roared back to win 3-2 at the FIFA U20 Womens World Cup on Friday, breathing new life into the teams hopes of advancing. "It was a great atmosphere in the locker-room (at halftime) considering the score," said coach Andrew Olivieri. "They were just really clear of the objective in the second. We had to find a way to finally put one in and then keep the pressure on." Janine Beckie and Valerie Sanderson, second-half substitutes, also scored in a thrilling final 45 minutes that Canada thoroughly dominated. Coming off a 1-0 loss to Ghana in their tournament opener, the Canadians needed at least a draw to have any hopes of moving on, but a victory looked far from certain until Beckie, who plays college soccer at Texas Tech, finally scored the teams first goal of the tournament in the 48th minute. The 19-year-old, whose older brother is former Columbus Crew defender Drew Beckie, fired a shot off the post that curled in off a Finnish defender. "Andrew (made the substitutions) to bring a little bit more energy to the game, we were in a little bit of a slump so I just wanted to come on and bring my own kind of energy and my game," Beckie said. "I scored the goal, thank god, it was a great ball in, and we were just really excited to get in there and make a difference." Sanderson, a 19-year-old who plays for the University of Memphis, pulled Canada even in the 50th when she one-timed a low cross from Prince to beat Finnish goalkeeper Vera Varis. The 19-year-old Prince, a forward at Ohio State University, scored in the 80th minute, one-timing a cross from Beckie to the delight of the noisy fans at National Soccer Stadium -- or BMO Field to its regular inhabitants, Major League Soccers Toronto FC. "It was an amazing feeling," Prince said. "We all worked hard to get back to the 2-2 tie, and we just had to push a little bit longer and get that extra goal in. I knew we were going to get it and I was happy I could be the one to score." The game drew 16,503 fans to the lakeshore stadium. A large section of Ghana fans had stuck around from their 3-0 loss to North Korea in the early game, and spontaneously broke into "O Canada." "Thats for sure the biggest crowd Ive ever played in front of, and it was just incredible," Beckie said. "To have this World Cup at home in front of a 16,000-plus stadium is just an unbelievable feeling, and for them to be behind us the whole game, even when we were down, they really helped us get that win." Canada heads to Montreal to face Finland on Tuesday in its final game of the preliminary round. The Canadians need to finish top two in Group A to advance to the quarter-finals of the tournament, which is a test run for the Womens World Cup next year in Canada. Juliette Kemppi scored both goals for Finland, opening the scoring in the ninth minute with a header of a corner kick. Kemppi doubled Finlands lead in the 21st, capitalizing on a poor clearing effort by Canada. Sura Yekka, who made her national senior debut almost a year ago, passed the ball inside straight to the foot of Kemppi, who launched a shot past Canadian goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan. Canadas keeper said, despite the halftime score, she was confident her team could turn it around. "We had a long talk about this before the game, it was really important for us to get goals, and (the strikers) were determined, I knew they were determined," Sheridan said. "They had so much grit and so much power in them, I was just so happy when that first goal went in, I knew we were going to get ahead." Finland had opened the tournament with a 2-1 loss to North Korea, which is undefeated in two games to lead Group A. Canadas best finish at this tournament was in 2002 -- a loss to the United States in the gold-medal game in Edmonton in an event that launched the international careers of Christine Sinclair and Kara Lang, among others. The Canadians had several other decent scoring chances Friday, including a couple from Jessie Fleming. The 16-year-old had a long floating shot that bounced off the crossbar midway through the first half, then fired a low shot that Varis had to dive for a few minutes later. Emma Fletcher fired a long volley off a cross from Prince that would have been a beautiful goal had it not soared just wide of the net. The Canadians know theyre in tough in against North Korea. "Theyre the third best in the world in youth programs," Olivieri said. "We know we need to play better than we did tonight, even though there was some good stuff, some bright moments, and were going to have to play 90 minutes of quality football against North Korea just to get a result." The Group A winner will play its quarter-final in Toronto, while second place in the group will head to Edmonton for the quarters. The tournament semifinals are in Montreal and Moncton, N.B., while Montreal hosts the gold-medal game. Earlier in the day, Ri Un-Sim scored twice as North Korea blanked Ghana 3-0 to take sole possession of top spot in Group A. Jo Son-Yon also scored a stoppage-time penalty for North Korea (2-0-0), which will face Canada on Aug. 12. In Group B play, Sara Daebritz and Theresa Panfil each scored twice as Germany and China battled to a 5-5 draw. Pauline Bremer added the other for the Germans (1-1-0), while Zhu Beiyan led China (0-2-0) with a pair of goals and Jiali Tang, Zang Chen and Lei Jiahui each scored once. Also, Lindsey Horan scored once to lead the United States to a 1-0 victory over Brazil. The Americans are 1-0-1, while Brazil is 0-1-1. Antawn Jamison Jersey .C. United have acquired midfielder Alex Caskey from the Seattle Sounders for a third-round pick in the 2016 MLS draft. Don Ohl Jersey . Jim Leyland, in his eighth playoffs, has never had a starting rotation he trusts as much as the grouping of Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister. https://www.cheapwizardsonline.com/1529k-troy-brown-jersey-wizards.html . The 31-year-old Russian dominated the No. 3-ranked Ferrer throughout, breaking the defending champion and local favourite four times on the indoor hard court.ST. LOUIS -- Brett Gardners leaping catch in the 11th inning gave the New York Yankees life. Patient at-bats and their first hit since the fifth inning put them over the top. "I just tried to get back there as fast as I could," Gardner said of his catch at the top of the left field wall that denied Yadier Molina of at least extra bases and perhaps a game-ending two-run homer in the Yankees 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in 12 innings Monday. "It was an easy play, just go back and make sure I get the ball in the glove before my back hits the wall." Brian Roberts bases loaded single was the go-ahead hit in a three-run 12th fueled by two walks and a hit batter. The Yankees won for the fourth time in extra innings on the season, three of them in the last six games. "Its a grind," Gardner said. "But weve been playing pretty well and we seem to really stay focused." Pinch-hitter Alfonso Soriano and Brendan Ryan each added an RBI for the Yankees, who took the opener of a three-game interleague series for their third straight win. Alfredo Aceves (1-2) worked two scoreless innings and David Robertson earned his 11th save in 12 chances. "At that point, youre just trying to get the guy in," Roberts said. "You need to be selective and find ways to win." Jon Jay had an RBI double in the 12th for the Cardinals, who lost for the third time in 12 games. "Just a really bad day," reliever Randy Choate said. "I felt fine coming in, just didnt have good stuff." A standing-room crowd of 47,311, the third-largest at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, showed up to see an opponent making only its second appearance in St. Louis since losing to the Cardinals in the 1964 World Series. The enthusiasm did not appear to be dampened by a 61-minute weather delay -- for rain that did not materialize -- before the first pitch. Cardinals pitchers retired 20 of 21 batters before the 12th, when Choate (0-2) faced five batters and four reached safely. Five Yankees relievers were stingy, too, permitting two hits in seven innings. "It comes down to doing little things and getting big hits," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. "Thats no secret. We had a couple of opportunities to get the big hit. You cant do it all the time." Jacoby Ellsbury got the rally started when he walked to lead off the inning and stole second, a call upheld aafter Matheny challenged. JaVale McGee Jersey. After coming through, Roberts is 3 for 6 in extra innings. "Another big hit for us," manager Joe Girardi said. "I thought the bottom of the lineup was extremely productive." Molina slammed his helmet in frustration after Gardner came down with his drive at the top of the fence with a runner on and one out in the 11th. Derek Jeter got a standing ovation before his first at-bat, and thousands stood again when he singled, although they also roared when he took a called third strike to end the eighth against Carlos Martinez after Molinas pinpoint throw on Gardner attempting to steal. Michael Wacha dealt with a rain delay for the fourth time in his 11 starts -- total idle time of 4 hours, 52 minutes. After nine pitches the Yankees had the lead, with a walk by Gardner and a single by Jeter setting up Ellsburys RBI single. The first three batters reached in a two-run fifth, too, with Kelly Johnsons RBI single and Gardners sacrifice fly putting the Yankees up 3-1. New York rookie starter Chase Whitley was vulnerable early, too. The Cardinals needed two at-bats to tie it in the first when Matt Carpenter tripled off the right-field wall and Kolten Wong doubled, but they missed a chance for more when Wong overslid third and was caught stealing for the first time in eight attempts this season. Whitley qualified for a win for the first time in three career starts, but left with the bases loaded and none out in the sixth before the Cardinals tied it against Preston Claiborne. Allen Craig had an RBI groundout and Jhonny Peralta followed with a sacrifice fly. Wacha bounced back after taking a foul liner off his elbow while sitting in the dugout his last time out, giving up three runs on four hits in seven innings. He had a season-low two strikeouts, the first against Ellsbury leading off the sixth. NOTES: In a pregame ceremony, Jeter received Stan Musial cuff links and a $10,000 check for the captains Turn 2 Foundation. ... The Cardinals also paid tribute to their 1964 team. ... Whitley is the first Yankees pitcher to make his first three career starts on the road since Ramiro Mendoza made four in a row in 1996. ... Cardinals RHP Lance Lynn (5-2, 3.60 ERA) opposes David Phelps (1-1, 3.18) on Tuesday night. Lynn is 1-3 with a 5.08 ERA in six career interleague starts. ... Wacha hasnt permitted more than three runs in any of his starts. ' ' '
