MONTREAL -- The Canadian junior womens soccer team is gaining momentum at the womens under-20 World Cup. Ender Inciarte Jersey . A 1-0 victory over North Korea on Tuesday night has put Canada into the quarter-finals feeling good about itself, even if their next opponent will be the powerhouse Germans. "We were relentless," said Janine Beckie, who was camped at the far post to put in Nichelle Princes pass in the 65th minute for the games only goal. "It feels amazing. Were moving on." Canada finished second in Group A and plays the Germans, who were first in Group B, on Saturday in Edmonton. Despite the loss, North Korea finished first in their four-team group on goal differential and will play the United States on Saturday in Toronto. The Canadians needed the win to stay ahead of Ghana, which beat Finland 2-1 in Moncton, N.B. to tie the host countrys 2-1 record. But the Africans were eliminated on goals for and against. Canada, which opened with a 1-0 loss to Ghana, looked dead in the water when it fell behind 2-0 to Finland last Saturday, but Beckie scored to ignite a three-goal second half rally. Then she scored the game-winner against the toughest opponent in the group. Penetrating the tight North Korean defence had been struggle all night as the visitors, who needed only a draw to clinch first place, allowed little space anywhere near the 18-yard box. Amandine Pierre-Louis, who got an ovation from her hometown crowd when she substituted in at the 60th minute for her first action of the tournament, started the play with a run down the right side. She crossed in for Nichelle Prince, who slipped the ball behind the defence to an unguarded Beckie at the far post. "It was going through my head: Dont miss this, so I put it in and I was really excited," said Beckie. Canada is hoping to get on the kind of roll it experienced in 2002, when a team led by Christine Sinclair made it to the final and drew a massive crowd at Edmontons Commonwealth Stadium at what was then the world U-19 championship. Germany, which crushed Brazil 5-1 just ahead of the Canada-North Korea game, will be a formidable opponent. The Germans scored 12 goals in their three group stage games. "I dont think we could be more ready," said Beckie. "Its just another team for us. "Its a great opponent. Im excited to play them, personally, but I think where were at now will keep propelling us through." A scoreless first half saw North Korea control most of the play in the first 30 minutes, but there were good chances at both ends. Only 10 minutes in, Kim Mi Gyong shot over the bar from close range, but Kailen Sheridans best save was in the 17th when after a clever buildup, Ri Kyong Hyong got in alone on the left side and blasted the ball from point blank range. Coach Andrew Olivieris side picked up the pace near the end of the half and nearly cashed in on an Emma Fletcher cross into the box. Then Ashley Lawrence placed a near-perfect high ball to the front of the net, but Beckies header was kept out by a diving save from goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok. Olivieri said the match may have been less exciting for the 13,031 fans scattered about the 55,000-seat stadium than he hoped, but said the North Korean side did what they could to slow down the play and make it a low-scoring game. But the fans that showed up were noisy and the players could feel the support from the seats. "They were crazy, it was insane," said Prince. "Especially with this huge stadium. "It was an honour to be able to play in it. The crowd was amazing." Prince said a win over a favourite like North Korea has morale high going into the quarter-finals. "It means a lot," she said. "Coming into this tournament, we wanted to inspire little girls and inspire Canada, and I think were on our route to doing that. "We still have a lot of work to do in this tournament. Were half way there. Were ready for whats to come." Centreback Kadeisha Buchanan was named player of the match. North Korea coach Hwang Yong Bong said that since his team was all-but guaranteed to advance, he wanted them to conserve energy for the next match. He had scoring star Ri Un Sim start on the bench because she had an injury in her last game. She went in two minutes into the second half. Bob Uecker Jersey .J. -- Patrick Sharp is on one of those streaks. Phil Niekro Jersey . Thats what he did over the past 2 1/2 years with the Washington Wizards. Wittmans approach helped turn the Wizards from pushover to playoff winners. . Now comes an off-season of questions about manager Matt Williams decisions and a handful of key roster choices, including what to do about Ryan Zimmerman, whether to sign Jordan Zimmermann and Ian Desmond to long-term deals, and how to upgrade an offence that fell flat in October.( - The Golden State Warriors came up empty in their tour through Los Angeles and are back home for the next six games, starting with Saturdays matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Warriors will also host Philadelphia, Toronto, Oklahoma City, Indiana and Cleveland, and have won eight straight at Oracle Arena. They are 10-1 as the host and have lost two straight overall and three of five games since winning a franchise-record 16 in a row. Golden State dropped a 115-105 decision to the Lakers on Tuesday, then suffered a 100-86 setback against the Clippers on Christmas. Stephen Curry posted 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, while Klay Thompson led the visitors with 15 points. Harrison Barnes added 12 and 13 rebounds in the loss. Very poor execution, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. We had a chance to be up 15 at halftime. Offensively, were not in the same groove. Were not moving the ball. Kerrs squad scored a season-low 42 points in the first half, but is still third in the NBA with 107.4 ppg and first in field goal percentage (48.0). The Warriors, who are 15-0 when holding the opposition under 100 points, won 10 in a row at home backk in 1994. Jason Motte Jersey. Minnesota is mired in a seven-game slide and is 0-2 on a four-game road trip. It fell to 5-23 on the season with Fridays 106-102 loss at Denver, as Thaddeus Young scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins added 22. Shabazz Muhammad scored 14 points and Gorgui Dieng added 14 and 13 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who shot 39.8 percent and were outrebounded 62-44. Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried killed the Wolves with 25 boards and 26 points. Were a young team and sometimes it happens like that at the end of the game, Young said. You just cant find a shot or you cant make a free throw. Minnesota is on its longest losing streak since a seven-game slide from March 30-April 17, 2012. The Wolves have lost seven in a row on the road and are 2-12 as the guest. They will close the sojourn Tuesday in Utah. The T-wolves are second-to-last in opponents scoring at 108.9 ppg. That could be trouble against the Warriors, who recorded a 102-86 win in the Twin Cities on Dec. 8. Curry and Thompson each scored 21 points in that one for Golden State, while Wiggins posted 21 points as well. The Warriors have won 15 of the last 18 encounters in this series.
