Japan Upsets Canada: Triple Gold Dream Over
Japan played a perfect defensive game plan and scored late in the game to pull off a big upset in the Sledge Hockey semi-finals. They defeated Canada 3-1, thanks to a goal with 73 seconds left in the game.
The crowd seemed stunned and the Canadian players are no doubt very disappointed. But they should also be very proud. Their play has earned the sport of Sledge Hockey not only 1000s of new fans across the country but a whole new respect for the sport and the athletes.
Great job guys. I can't wait to watch Canada in the bronze medal game on Friday. Do yourself proud and bring home a medal!
