Canada beats Argentina in Olympic debut

TIANJIN, China -- Canada wore down Argentina to win its Olympic debut 2-1 Wednesday, getting a goal in each half and using a significant size advantage to subdue the South Americans.

Coming out of her center back position, Candace Chapman put Canada ahead in the 27th minute. She ran onto a corner that was deflected more than 30 yards from goal and struck a right-footed volley that skipped inside the left post. Kara Lang added the insurance in the 72nd, heading Rhian Wilkinson's free kick from 10 yards.

A ragged game for the first 30 minutes, Canada finally took control after Chapman's goal, capitalizing on an average advantage of 14 pounds and 2½ inches in the starting lineups.
