Haiti goalie Edine Limage improving

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Haitian goalkeeper injured in a collision with a teammate during an Olympic women's soccer qualifying match remains hospitalized but is apparently doing better.

CONCACAF spokesman Scott Gleba said Friday that "there does not appear to be serious injury" to Edine Limage. Gleba said Limage will stay in the hospital for further observation.

Haiti coach Ronald Luxieux initially was concerned that Limage had sustained a spinal injury when she was knocked to the turf Thursday night by teammate Samantha Marie-Ann Brand during the second half of Haiti's 6-0 loss to Canada.

Haiti is among eight teams vying for two Olympic berths at the qualifying tournament for North and Central America and the Caribbean.
