Surrey, B.C. - In a 7-0 victory against TC Colorado, Canada clinched the 2024 Canada Cup Championship, a title they last won in 2019. Team Canada remained undefeated throughout the tournament and now sets their sights on the 2024 WBSC Women’s Softball World Cup Finals in Castions di Strada, Italy. 

Canada took the lead in the bottom of the third inning when CC Wong (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) drew a walk, followed by Larissa Franklin's (Maple Ridge, B.C.) single to right field.
