NARPIO, FINLAND - Vicky Sunohara of Scarborough, ON and Cassie Campbell of Brampton, ON each scored two goals, and Amanda Benoit of Welland, ON scored a goal and added two assists to lead Team Canada to a 8-4 victory over Finland in Canada's second game at the Women's 3 Nations Cup in Finland.

Finland opened the scoring with a goal at 5:46 from Karoliina Ranatamaki, then Canada responded with six unanswered goals to take a 6-1 lead at the end of two periods. Campbell started the scoring for Canada at 6:45 of the first period with an assist from Lori Dupuis of Cornwall, ON. Sunohara scored her first of two goals at 10:08 of the first period, with Benoit assisting.

Canada continued their scoring pace in the second period with a power play goal from Nancy Drolet of Drummondville, QC, and then two goals 32 seconds apart from Benoit and Sunohara. Jayna Hefford of Trenton, ON rounded out Canada's second period scoring. France St-Louis of Laval, QC added Canada's final goal at 18:03 of the third period.

"We moved the puck well, generated a lot of speed and went to the net well tonight", said Vicky Sunohara who was co-player of the game for Canada, sharing the honours with Benoit.

"We wanted to play an offensive game today, and we got it. We are continuing to build momentum in each game of the tournament", said Danièle Sauvageau, head coach of Team Canada.

Team Canada's roster features 13 Olympic silver medalists for this first International womenís tournament since the 1998 Winter Olympic games in Nagano, Japan.

Canada's next game is on Monday, Dec. 14 at 6:30pm, (9:30am EST), as they take on Team USA for the second time of the tournament, after beating the USA 2-1 in their first meeting. Canada will finish the 3 Nations Cup on Dec. 16 versus Finland.
