July 27, 2014

Kingston’s Kate Gillis scored Canada’s first goal Sunday and the Canadians went on to defeat Trinidad and Tobago 4-1 in women’s field hockey competition at the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Gillis, the Canadian team captain and a graduate of Regiopolis Notre Dame, helped Canada to a 2-0 halftime lead.

The win was the first in three tries in this tournament for Canada, which will close the preliminary round with a game Wednesday against New Zealand. Trinidad and Tobago is 0-3.

New Zealand, the fourth-ranked team in the world, is 2-0, tied for first place atop the division standings with South Africa. India is 1-1.

Regi’s other contribution to Canada’s team in Glasgow, wrestler Cleo Ncube, will fight his first match Tuesday.
