EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Erin McLeod made a series of first-half saves and Christine Sinclair, Brittany Timko and Adriana Leon scored in Canada's 3-0 victory over South Korea on Wednesday night in a women's exhibition soccer game.

McLeod, playing in front of a hometown crowd, made five leaping or diving saves off drives in the first half to hold off a South Korean team that held the edge in play but couldn't finish.

Stephanie Labbe replaced McLeod in the second half.

Sinclair opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, heading Diana Matheson's corner kick off the far post past goalkeeper Min Kyung Jun. Timko scored in the 39th, and Leon in the 69th.
