Team Canada took their time today before they would crank it up, fully.  The first period was pretty sluggish with an opening goal from Andrew Radjenovic followed by another one by Colin Munro.  In the second period, Team Canada became a scoring machine.  The Final score was 16-2.  The highlight of the game was the sportsmanship that took place during the game and after.  Team Canada did not make wild celebrations after every goal and it was clear that the Japanese Goalie was hurt, so the guys showed a lot of class and poise to not rub it in after each goal.  After the game, MIke Hayward took his own Goalie Jersey, had the entire team sign it, and the he handed it to the emotional Japanese Goalie, Yagyu Kota.  It was a true gesture of sportsmanship and Floorball spirit.

Team Canada finishes strong to place 15th overall.
