It’s almost over… Bittersweet game for the U19 girls today. They did a beautiful job winning against Great Britain this morning with a score of 3 - 0, but I am sure they would have much rather been playing in the medal rounds. I am sure they would have had a solid chance to beat both South Africa and Australia, but they never got the chance to play them again. Their final standing is 5th place.
The bug has spread. All ten of our boys share two suites and now six of them are sick. They drag themselves out of bed looking in sad shape but they tell me they will be there for this morning game against Canada. If we win, we continue to play and if we lose, our tournament is over.
I am not sure I can make it through this report. It is SOOOO stressful. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone - I can do that tomorrow. Jeeze, writing those few words has gotten my heart rate up again. Just thinking of todays games is an adrenaline rush…
The first game played was the U19 men against Canada for 8th and 9th place. The winner to go up into the playoffs. That game can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK9AKItMFic
