Going for GOLD
Last night was exciting as we played Sweden in the semi final for chance to compete for gold. It was a crazy fast game right out of the gate, both teams were flying, Sweden went up 1-0 late in the first. The scored stayed the same trough 2 periods. Both goalies were going save for save keeping the score close. As the 3rd went on we went on the PP and scored to tie it 1-1. We added another late to go up 2-1. Ian Scott our goalie was outstanding making tough saves to secure the lead. The most impressive sight for me came in the last min of play. Sweden pulled their goalie for an extra attacker, holding the play in our zone and applying pressure. It was so inspiring to see our players selling out and sacrificing there bodies to block shots, player after player diving and jumping in front of pucks, 3-4 shots blocked one player even blocked one with his face. We got it done and won 2-1. Today is a new challenge and you couldn't write a better script. Team Canada vs Team Russia for the GOLD medal.
