China upset Canada 2-1 here on Saturday to reap a hat trick in the women's soccer group C at the 24th Universiade, advancing to the quarterfinals as the group winner.

China, the runners-up of the 2005 Universiade in Turkey, beat Great Britain 1-0 and defeated South Africa 2-0 in the group before today's match.

Formed on the Chinese U-19 team, China controlled the first half and opened the scoring in the 28th minute when Wang Dandan sent a freekick home. Nine minutes later, Mao Aihong danced past a Canadian defender and thrusted into the penalty box. Her low-shot flew into the far corner of the net.

Trailing 2-0, the Canadians, who needed at least a two-goal win to qualify the group, rallied from the beginning of the second half but managed to score only one goal through Francine Brousseau 's long shot.

China coach Gao Rongming said, "We appeared lacking stamina in the second half but I am satisfied with the final result."

Left back Wang Lingling, a regular starter of the Chinese team, got a palm fracture in the South Africa match and was not on the field against Canada.

Gao said that Wang's absence weakened the team's defense on left wing.
