The Canadian women's national soccer team put on a clinic at the CONCACAF Women's Olympic qualifying tournament against Guatemala on Tuesday night, scoring 10 (yes, 10!) goals.

This is the first time team Canada has won by 10 goals in international play since July 2007 (an 11-1 win over Jamaica). 

Take a look at all 10 goals and let us know which was your favourite.

Veteran forward Melissa Tancredi did what she does best getting into the air and using her size to dominate. 


Youngster Gabrielle Carle showed sheer determination earning her first goal on the national team in only her second start.


Janine Beckie showed everyone that one touch is really all you need.


Then Nichelle Prince showed off her cheetah-like speed, beating everyone on her way to her first goal of the tournament.


Rebecca Quinn buried a penalty kick to get her name on the scoresheet. Not bad for her first international goal! 


Apparently, one goal wasn't enough for the rookie. Quinn put in two more, earning her first hat trick for the national team.



Not to be outdone by her teammate, Nichelle Prince collected a rebound and earned her second goal of the night. 


Then, in an unfortunate play by the Guatemalan keeper, Tandcredi swooped in to capitalize on her mistake. 


A second hat trick?! That's right. Nichelle Prince joined Rebecca Quinn with three goals each on the night.
