Boyds, MD (March 7, 2018) – Washington Spirit rookie defender Rebecca Quinn played the full 90 minutes for the Canada Women’s National Team during three consecutive clean sheet wins in the Algarve Cup over Russia, Korea Republic and Japan.
Quinn earned international caps No. 34-37 at the Algarve Cup, playing every minute of action for Canada. In addition to their three straight shutout victories, the Canadians opened the tournament with a 1-3 loss against Sweden on February 28.
After the initial setback against Sweden, Canada downed Russia 1-0, Korea Republic 3-0 and Japan 2-0 to close out the Algarve Cup with 270 straight minutes of shutout soccer during the three wins.

She has scored three goals and assisted two others so far in her young career with the senior national team.
