BAKU, Azerbaijan - Ri Un Sim scored a pair of late goals as North Korea eliminated Canada from the women's under-17 World Cup with a 2-1 quarter-final win Thursday.

Ri scored in the 78th and 87th minute to send North Korea on to the final four. She now has seven goals in four games at the tournament.

Nichelle Prince scored with a 20-yard drive in added time for Canada, but by then it was too late to find an equalizer.

North Korea is looking for its second win in three tournaments, also claiming top spot in New Zealand in 2008.
