Canada West beat Great Britain, lead U16 standings

The Canadian U16 team with the designation 'West' led the way from the very beginning. In the second minute, Taylor Mackie had no trouble finding the open net and converting a three-on-two breakaway. Canada kept on going with the dominant performance they displayed in their first game. Maxx Hamelin, in particular, shone brightly as he managed to complete a hat-trick and pick up two assists for a five-point game.

Callum West (GBR): „It’s very tough today and we knew that Canada would be a very good team. They had us whenever they had, moving the ball really well and pulled us out of positions. They were a very very good team. I’m still very happy with the way our guys played. We dug deep the whole game and we didn’t give up and that’s what we want from our group. Despite the scoreline we don’t feel like it was a 12-0 defeat cause we still worked really really hard. I’m proud of the boys.“

Jon Silcox (CAN): „It was a good game, their guys obviously played well today. It’s tough when you get into a lopsided game again sometimes because you are trying to keep the guys on a gameplan and not picking a bad habits. We try to do what is the best for the team. It’s two games in a row, they got really lopsided so we need to keep a track on that. I’m still happy with them, still proud of them and at the end of the day it’s all if you really ask is to play this game all year round. But we still have a lots of work to do.“
