    Canada falls to Norway at U-20 Women's WC

    KOBE, Japan - Canada surrendered a pair of second-half goals and fell 2-1 to Norway on Thursday, leaving it with a difficult task to reach the quarterfinals of the Under-20 Women's World Cup.

    The result put Canada in second place in Group D with three points, same as Norway and ahead on goal difference (plus-5 to minus-1). But Canada must play its final match against group leader North Korea - which has won both of its matches by a combined 13-2 -- on Monday, while Norway will face winless Argentina.

    After Canadian keeper Sabrina D'Angelo saved Ada Hegerberg's penalty attempt in the 19th minute, Jenna Richardson gave the North Americans the lead a minute before halftime.

    But Hegerberg atoned for her penalty miss with a tap-in goal in the 52nd minute, and her older sister Andrine Hegerberg converted with a left-footed drive from outside the area in the 79th for the winner.

    Canada had more of the possession but was outshot 18-13.
