2011 IWRF Americas Zone Qualification E-Newsletter 

Though Team Canada fell short today against the USA -- going down 56-45 -- we have still qualified for the Paralympics and are London bound! Canada went down by 4 goals early in the fourth quarter and struggled to mount a comeback against the Americans. Though we kept it close within the second and third quarters, the USA pulled away and we were never able to recover.

The future of Team Canada, however, looks bright. Seventeen-year-old Zak Madell received an All Star award in his first major international tournament, as did Trevor Hirschfield.

Thanks for supporting Team Canada during the 2011 IWRF Americas Zone Qualification tournament. In the future, we hope to use this e-newsletter to keep our fans connected to Team Canada's progress as we strive for gold in 2012. Go Canada Go!
