VICTORIA, British Columbia, Jan. 19, 2012 -- Former James Madison women's soccer player Christina "Corky" Julien ('10) scored the game-winning goal and contributed an assist in Canada's 6-0 win over Haiti Thursday night in the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Her goal in the seventh minute gave her team a 1-0 lead in Canada's opening game of the tournament.

In Group A play Canada will face Cuba on Jan. 21 and Costa Rica on Jan. 23.  The top two teams from the four-team group advance to the semifinal stage. Teams competing in the opposite group are Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico and defending champion USA.

Only the top two teams from the CONCACAF championship will qualify for this summer's Olympic Games.

The winners of the CONCACAF semifinal matches on Jan. 27 will qualify for the London Olympics.  The semifinal winners advance to the CONCACAF championship match on Jan. 29.

Julien, a former JMU All-America, was the 2008 Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year.  She completed her collegiate career ranked second on JMU's career goals list (44), second on the career points list (102) and tied 18th on the career assist list (14).  Julien scored a JMU-record 19 career game-winning goals.

Julien was a starter on Canada's gold-medal team in last fall's Pan American Games and played for Canada in the 2011 World Cup in Germany.  She has 32 international appearances with Canada since joining the team in February 2009
