The victory earned Canada a spot in the world championships, Aug 30 to Sept. 21 in Poland.

The Costa Ricans were totally dominated by the Canadians in size, speed and play. The Canucks have six players over 1.9 me (six foot five). The Ticos have none.

“Costa Rica was not bad, and they have a couple of good players, but we were prepared,” said Schmitt on Sunday. “We did a lot of jumping this morning — we practised hard — it’s a long tournament and there are still things that we need to work on. We’re looking forward to tomorrow.”
