Canada downs Wales 15-0 for second win at women's rugby World Cup

DUBLIN — Magali Harvey sealed Canada's second win of the women's rugby World Cup with a late try as the Canadians downed Wales 15-0 on Sunday.

Harvey scored her first try of the game — and Canada's second — in the 81st minute. The 26-year-old from Quebec City also scored on a penalty kick in the 70th minute and converted on Lori Josephson's 25th-minute try.

Canada, ranked third in the world, is hoping to improve on its second-place showing at the last World Cup in 2014, when it lost to England in the final.

The Canadians controlled the game against 10th-ranked Wales, taking possession over 70 per cent of the match.

Canada had 112 carries over gainline compared to just 30 for Wales.

The Canadian squad opened Pool A play at the World Cup with a 98-0 rout of Hong Kong earlier this week.

Canada will play No. 2 New Zealand on Thursday.
