Stingers Celebrate New Years in Japan!


Our series against Team Japan is over. We played a morning game today which ended in a 1-0 loss to Team Japan, who scored a powerplay goal with a minute left. The game was a great improvement compared to our first two games. We had a lot more team chemistry and our passing was much crisper. After the game we took some pictures with the two teams together and with our friends we made at dinner the other night. This will serve as great souvenirs from our time in Tomikomai, which is almost up. 

The game plan for the rest our time in Tomikomai is to go to an outlet mall this afternoon, which is a 20 minute train ride from the hotel. After we get back to the hotel we have a dinner scheduled and then we will have a small New Year's Eve celebration, since we have to leave for the airport at 7am tomorrow morning. 

New Year's Eve was quite a treat. We got a conference room in the hotel and had some fun as a team, coaches and trainers included. I’ll leave our activities choice to imagination but no cup was left un-flipped. 

Happy New Years to all! 

Next time we speak, the Stingers will be in Tokyo. 

With Stinger Pride,
