Well all good things must come to an end. We lost this afternoon 8-1. We were doing pretty well and were only down 3-1 going into the 3rd but a quick 4th goal seemed to deflate us and it all went downhill from there. The boys played their little hearts out and Tommy did ok. You have to credit the Canadian team, they were awesome! Tommy finally looked like the younger player that he is and got beat a couple times. The team was just faster and had a great goalie when we did get our chances to score.
I'm not disappointed at all. The team got a nice trophy and the kids got medals. 2nd place out of 16 teams is great. Tommy is a little bummed but he'll get over it. I know after yet another breakaway from the other team he was hanging his head pretty low during the game. He's so competitive. His team hasn't lost except for one game in October so he definitely hasn't tasted defeat in a while.
Only 2 weeks left of our season, I will definitely miss this team. 9 of his teammates have to move up to Squirts. We had a fabulous time hanging out with everyone at the hotel and we only got one complaint about noise the whole weekend so kudos to us. ;) I do think I need a snow day this week to help recover. An email from my principal states that may happen Tuesday. Cross your fingers. ;)
Thanks to everyone for following our tournament fun! I bet you are all about sick of hearing about hockey. Is it baseball season yet?
