Team USA through to semis
Lisa Fernandez of the USA
The United States eased through to the semi-finals of the women's softball tournament with a 7-0 win over Canada.

Jennie Finch pitched a one-hitter with eight strikeouts and Lisa Fernandez went 3-for-4 with a homer as the US posted their fifth straight shut-out.

Crystl Bustos and Lisa Fernandez also homered for the defending champions.

The Americans have now outscored their opponents 31-0 and appear to be in a class of their own in the eight-team field competing for Olympic honours.
