Ednie Limage injuries not serious

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Haiti goalkeeper Ednie Limage was hospitalized Thursday night after colliding with a teammate during an Olympic qualifying game against Canada.

Ben Spencer, media manager for CONCACAF, said Friday tests revealed no major injuries. He said she'll remain in the hospital for one more day as a precaution.

Limage was reaching for a high ball when she struck hard by midfielder Samantha Marie-Ann Brand in the second half of Haiti's 6-0 loss. Limage fell to the ground in pain, still clutching the ball.

Limage was carried off the field on a hand-held stretcher and treated near the Haiti bench for much of the second half. Then she was immobilized on a hospital stretcher and taken from the stadium.

Limage, 26, lives in Canada and plays for the University of Moncton in New Brunswick.
