Just two games into the 2024 Concacaf Women's Gold Cup, Team Canada is lighting it up offensively, with Sudbury native Cloe Lacasse front and centre with much of the action to date.

Lacasse netted the first goal for Les Rouges just three minutes into their opening game with El Salvador before assisting on three more tallies as Canada posted a comfortable 6-0 win.

Feeding pin-point passes to the likes of Jordyn Huitema, Adriana Leon and rookie Olivia Smith, the graduate of Ecole Secondaire Macdonald-Cartier was named player of the match for Canada, remaining on the field for the entire ninety minutes.

Back in the starting lineup a few days later opposite Paraguay, Lacasse was part of a second layer of attack that allowed Canada to outshoot their counterparts 24-2, receiving a three goal effort from Adriana Leon and another strike from Olivia Smith.

Lacasse and company will face their stiffest test of pool play on Wednesday, battling Costa Rica, the team situated directly below them in terms of World rankings within the Concacaf assembly.

Fair to say that continuing to earn a starting assignment from head coach Bev Priestman bodes well for the chances of the 30 year-old member of Arsenal professional women's team in England earning a spot on the Olympic roster come the summer.
