The mixed division was broken into two pods. Our pod had 5 teams. The day started off bright and early against Can Water Cougars. This team seemed like a mix of players from Canada. CanWater Cougars were fun competition, but we ended up with the victory with a final score of 7-2.
Game two was against the Mermaids (also a team of all women). This game we were able to work on our plays right off the strike, so we had some fun making forward progression right away. The final score was 12-0.
The third game of the day was against New Zealand. We played them in the friendly game, but the team we played today made some changes that put us on hour heels. We were able to pull off the win with a score of 4-2, but this team was much stronger than the team we played on Wednesday.
The Melting Pot was our forth game of the day. Going into this game we had the same record, so we were looking forward to good game. Right away, they came out strong and scored the first goal. This made us a little nervous, but we able to maintain our composure and hold them off for the rest of the game. The final score was 5-1.
The final game of the day was a crossover game between the top seed in our pod and the second seed in the other pod. We played the Amazons. We heard that they had made some changes since the friendly games, and it showed in their play. We were starting to feel tired from the previous four games and we finished the first half tied at 2-2. During the second half something changed. We were able to keep our legs kicking and keep our goal defended. We held them off and were able to finish with a final score of 6-2.
It was a fun day of hockey. We are looing forward to seeing what tomorrow has in store for us.
