Richmond's Kaelan Watson has added another medal as a member of the senior women's national field hockey team, this time a bronze at the Super Series Hockey 9s in Perth, Australia.
Coming off a third place finish at last month's Pan American Cup in Argentina, Canada reached the podium this time with 3-1 victory over Malaysia on Sunday. Watson, joined the national team program last spring after a decorated career at the
University of Toronto where she established herself as one of the top defenders in the nation.
Canada opened the Super 9s with a 4-1 loss to Argentina as the Pan Am champion struck for a pair of early tallies and did all of its scoring in the opening half. A 7-0 loss to powerhouse and eventual tournament champion Australia followed, before topping Malaysia 4-1 to set-up the bronze medal rematch.
