<p>The New Zealand Women have been held to a 0-0 draw with Canada at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games</p>
<p class="">The New Zealand Women have been held to a 0-0 draw with Canada in their third pool match at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.<br>
<br>
It was an up tempo start for the Kiwis, creating plenty of scoring opportunities but unable to find the finishing touches.<br>
<br>
Canada fought strongly for possession and were impressive in defence against New Zealand throughout the game.<br>
<br>
New Zealand’s best scoring opportunity came late in the second half with a penalty corner goal awarded and then disallowed on video referral with the hit just missing the backboard.<br>
<br>
Head coach Mark Hager said it was a frustrating outcome going into tomorrow’s crucial clash against Australia.<br>
<br>
“Early on we had enough chances and I thought we played well in first quarter but then we went away from the game plan,” he said.<br>
<br>
“Canada played well and made some good saves but we need to be better than that. It’s a big one tomorrow night against Aussie so now we need to refocus and go in ready.”<br>
<br>
The New Zealand Women play their final match of the pool phase against trans-Tasman rivals Australia at 11:30pm on Monday night (NZ time), live on TVNZ Games Online (<a href="http://www.tvnz.co.nz/">www.tvnz.co.nz</a>).<br>
