CAN vs URU
Match two saw Pool B runners up Canada play Uruguay, 3rd placed in Pool A. The weather changed dramatically to a downpour. This seemed to delight the Canadians who came out to enjoy one of the few rainfalls in recent weeks. The game started under overcast skies and a cautious start from the teams. It was an intense midfield battle with many turnovers in the middle of the field. The teams traded PCs, but either team’s defence held strong. The halftime horn sounded with the teams scoreless with 1 goal looking like it might be enough to win the game. The second half brought the sun and more of the same first half story with a midfield battle for possession. A good Cookson run led to a Cole shot wide of the mark. Uruguay forced Logush to make a save from a PC as they pressed for the lead. Faiczak missed a glorious chance in the final seconds to win it in regulation time for Canada, but the scores ended 0-0 to send us to our first penalty shootout of the competition. Canada held their nerve to win the shootout 5-3 and book a semi-final spot against Argentina on Thursday. Uruguay will play Mexico in the 5-8th classification match.

Congratulations to our Stellers for winning the finals to become the 3rd division champions! An exciting game to watch.
Although the Flickers tied their final game, they lost to the Lynx1 in shootouts. Great work to all the players! Now the youngsters can take a break while us ‘experienced’ players will be playing in the Masters tournament at UVIC next weekend!
