Fleming's and Rose's teams made it through the first round without them.  I'm relieved because it would have sucked if their seasons had ended while off playing friendlies for Canada.

Kinzner and Shymka's Colorado Buffs make it to the second round.

WVU won handily yesterday, and the five Canadians played a big part in that.  I had no idea Easther Mayi Kith was Canadian.  She looked really good in Buchanan's old spot, and St. George is doing a credible job in Lawrence's old position.  It's nice that those two star alumni are replaced by two other able Canadians.

^[  1  ]   Colorado are in for a tough one against  North Carolina on Friday.  Also there is  an interesting match up  here  with Colorado striker  Marty Puketapu of New Zealand vs  UNC striker Alessia  Russo  of England . Kinzner's  offensive stats with Colorado are a little disapointing  : 0 points this year;  11 points ( 4 goals, 3 assists )   last year.

^[ 2 ]  I would also add that Rylee Foster picked up a win and her 11th clean sheet of the year for WVU.

[ 3 ]  Princeton advance into the next round. Natalie Grossi picked up a win  and  her 11th clean sheet of the year;  Vanessa Gregoire  with an assist.

[ 4 ] Florida State advance into the next round. Gabrielle Carle  playing fullback scored her first goal of the season.

[ 5 ] USF  advance into the next round (  Evelyne Viens  with a goal and two assists ) and will meet Florida (gators) with Deanne Rose on Friday!

[ 6 ] UCLA ( Fleming ) has Northwestern on Friday.

[ 7 ] Other schools with Canadians that  are  still in the tournament: South Carolina, Duke , Notre Dame, Wisconsin,Washington State.

[ 8 ] Schools with Canadians now out of the tournament: Ohio State, Stony Brook, Rice,TCU,Arkansas,FGCU,Cal, UCF, and Utah Valley

Phew!  WVU squeaks by Rutgers in a penalty shootout.  Proud to see Foster make two saves, and St. George, Portillo and Mayi-Kith put in three of the four penalties for WVU.  Unfortunately, Pierre-Louis bashed her knee in a rash challenge on her part and had to come out earlier.  I hope she can come back for the next game, because all of the Canadians were playing very well.

I was very impressed with Rutgers' defensive efficiency.  Every WVU player was going one-on-two or one-on-three the whole game in Rutgers' defensive third.  The first defender would barge the opponent off the ball and the others would mop up.  With arguably the best goalie in the NCAA, their plan to win the game in a penalty shoot-out almost worked.  Too bad for them they ran into the Canadians at that stage.

A pile of Canadians leave the tournament as WVU loses to Penn State 1-3.  Too bad, but the WVU attack just wasn't dangerous enough.  It didn't help that Abam played in the back line in place of the injured Pierre-Louis.  Penn State were the better team, and that's that.

[ 1 ]   A good weekend  for some Canadians: Rebecca  Quinn with a multi point match on Friday. Deanne Rose with a golden goal today and Jessie Fleming with an equalizing PK.

[ 2 ]  Four of the  remaining Elite Eight schools  have Canadians on them:   Duke ( Quinn,Munro) ,Florida ( Rose) , UCLA ( Fleming, Faulknor  ) and Princeton ( Gregoire, Grossi, Sheppard, Azermadhi ).

[ 3 ] The Elite Eight matchup of  UCLA vs Princeton  will have some intriguing Canadian  against Canadian action. Princeton senior Vanessa  Gregoire and Jessie Fleming were team mates on  U20 CANWNT  at the  2014 FIFA U20 WWC. Princeton sophomore  Olivia  Sheppard is currently part of  Bev  Priestman's  U20 pool . And Princeton sophomore  GK Natalie  Grossi had a good regular season  with 11 clean sheets this year.

There's Simone Wark at South Carolina as well.

Though Simone Wark is on South Carolina's roster, my hunch is she's not going to play in this tournament.  Wark only made one appearance  for South  Carolina  in September and since then hasn't made a game day lineup. Additionally, her name is not on South Carolina's current combined team stats page.

[ 2 ]  Also on the list is Indigo Gibson, an American central defender  with a Canadian mother.

http://www.dailycal.org/2017/11/21/vains-indigo-gibsons-life-guided-game-loves/

[ 3 ]   Additionally, in the summer of 2016,  Daniel Worthington gave Indigo Gibson a look for Canada's  U20 WWC team -- and she scored a goal  for Canada in a closed door friendly. Yet, inexplicably, Gibson wasn't part of Canada's U20 team for the 2016 WWC PNG. I know hindsight is 20/20, but  Worthington's starting centerback for the U20 WWC  ( who was playing in U-Sports that year  and was in NCAA division 2 the year earlier )  was burned by Spain U20  for three goals.  Maybe some of those goals don't go in , if Indigo Gibson was there.

There is the potential explanation that she was offered a spot and decided to stay with Cal for the NCAA tournament instead.

^I think if you look closely you'll see that I wrote that Gibson  inexplicably wasn't part of the the 2016 U20 WWC team -- meaning that there was no known explanation  as to why.  So it's possible that Gibson declined an offer  from Canada  to stay with Cal for the NCAA tournament.  Or maybe ,  Gibson's  brief time with Canada just soured her on  Canada altogether.  Or maybe, Worthington  didn't like what he saw and chose not not to select her for the  U20  WWC team   and  a year later, Gibson is a MAC Hermann  trophy semifinalist.

That's "unexplained"; inexplicably is that there is no possible explanation.
