England Senior Women landed in Finland on Sunday – unfortunately not all the kit landed with them – there were 6 bags in total missing. However, in true Brit style the girls made do and the first practice was a power skating marathon.
Afterwards – some of the girls were asking for more which surprised coach Alderson!
Thankfully the sticks and missing kit turned up this afternoon in the nick of time. Seniors played the Lathi Pelicans, a strong local team. End of first was 2-0 to Pelicans, England held them to a 0-0 in the second, with England pinning them in their own end for the last 3 minutes.
The third period was exciting with England putting shot after shot on the Finnish net, but unfortunately the game ended 4-0 to The Pelicans.
MVP for England was Chelsea Aheran
