Jordyn Huitema and the Canadian national women’s soccer squad played their final game at the 2018 Algarve Cup Wednesday, blanking Japan 2-0.
The 25th annual tournament was held Feb. 28 to March 7 in Portugal, with Huitema’s Canadian crew playing four matches.
Huitema didn’t play in the opener, a 3-1 loss to Sweden that almost immediately knocked Canada out of medal contention.
The 16 year old saw plenty of action in the second game. She was in the starting lineup and logged 66 minutes before being subbed out in a 1-0 win over Russia.
Huitema came off the bench in Canada’s third game, a 3-0 shutout of Korea Republic. The teenager came on in the 75th minute, replacing veteran Sophie Schmidt.
Huitema was on the pitch for the third Canadian goal, scored by Christine Sinclair.
In the final game against Japan, Huitema came on in the 71st minute, replacing Nichelle Prince.
Canada finished fifth overall in the tournament.
Huitema has now made 10 appearances and two starts for the national team, which is schedule to play its next international match April 9 in France.
Huitema is also eligible to play in the CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship, which takes place in late April in Nicaragua.
