GOYANG, South Korea -- Brad Bowden scored a pair of power-play goals as Canada defeated South Korea 5-0 Tuesday at the World Sledge Hockey Championship.

Canada finished 3-0 to lead Group B and advance to Thursday's semifinals.

"I don't care who we play to get there, I just want to get to that gold-medal final this year," Canadian captain Greg Westlake said.

Bowden leads Canada in scoring in the tournament with five goals and four assists in three games.

Marc Dorion, Adam Dixon and Anthony Gale also scored for Canada.
