Baptiste recaps Sudbury victory over Denmark

Hi everyone!

We had our pre-game meal at 10:30 a.m. before the Norway game, which is a little weird for eating chicken and rice! I had a long nap after the meal and woke up ready to go to the game at 12:45.

We got to the rink and warmed up by playing sewer ball. I got hit in the face by Jeff Corbett [@corbs46] . For those of you that have never played sewer ball, it is just standing in a circle trying to keep a soccer ball up in the air but your opponents [actually my teammates] try to knock you out of the game with bad passes.

The game was outstanding. Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick, Josh Levio [@jleivo17] scored a third period hat trick to push us to a 7-2 victory over the Denmark Under-20 Team.

After the game we took the bus to TGI Friday's for another North American style meal, and then were back to the hotel for 9:30 p.m.

We will be back at the rink [Thursday] morning for practice before our game against Sweden [Thursday night]. We have clinched a spot in the semifinals and a win over Sweden would clinch first place in our pool.
