LOS BAÑOS--The RP Blu Girls once again stunned Canada with a 6-3 win in the Canada Cup International Softball Championship in Surrey, Canada on Sunday (Philippine Time).

Kailee Cuico opened the scoring for the Blu Girls with a three-run homer in the first inning before Hailey Decker scored two RBI's in the second.

Cuico added another RBI in the fifth inning for a 6-0 count.
