Goalball team misses medal round
A 1-0 loss to China on the weekend eliminated Canada's women's goalball team from the medal round at the Beijing Paralympics on Sunday.
The team — which features P.E.I.'s only two paralympians, Amy Kneebone and Contessa Scott — finished with a record of two wins, three ties, and two losses.
China advanced to the gold medal match against the United States, losing the match 6-5.
Goalball is a game for visually impaired athletes. Players attempt to roll a ball with a bell in it across the goal line of the opposing team.
