Congratulations to Ice Hockey Representatives
Two Citipointe students recently participated in an ice hockey tournament in Hong Kong. The international community was fantastic and welcoming, the Mega Ice Arena was beautiful and allowed the games to be played all day and all night.
Quentin Greenwood joined a team from Bangkok – Bangkok Warriors in the U12 Division. This team placed third overall in a tough final. The score was nil all at the end of the third period, so the game went into 5 mins of overtime as it was a final. There was no change to the score at the end of the extra time, so a shootout was called. The score was not changed until the third shoot out round when the opposing team scored. The atmosphere in the arena was electric!
Aaron Greenwood joined the International Northstars team and played in the U15 division. His team also placed third. Aaron’s team was made up of children from Sweden, Finland, Canada, Korea and America with the team coach flying in from Sweden for the event. The tournament was fast and exciting with plenty of challenges. This was the first time in ten years that participants from Australia attended the Tournament but after the successes of all of the Australians, 10 across 4 divisions, it won’t be the last.
Congratulations Quentin and Aaron.
