Canada Cup wheelchair rugby: Canucks finish fourth after losing to U.S.

A disappointing week for Canada ended with a 56-53 loss against the United States on Sunday at the 2016 Canada Cup international wheelchair rugby tournament.

The loss left Canada in fourth place with a 3-3 record. It’s the first time the top-ranked Canadians have failed to win a medal in the 12-year history of the Canada Cup tournament.

The second-ranked U.S. finished 6-0 to win the gold. Australia (5-1) claimed silver while Japan (4-2) was third.

Canada struggled to maintain intensity against the aggressive Americans. The Canadians were quickly down by two and finished the half trailing 31-27.
