The Canadian Polocrosse team travelled to Rue, France to compete in an international Polocrosse tournament July 27-29, 2012.
It was the first time a Canadian team had competed against the European countries of Norway, France, Netherlands and Germany so the level of competition was unknown. After winning their first game against Norway 3-14, the Canadians continued on their winning streak defeating Netherlands 4-10 , and Germany7-15, and finally the defending champions, France 9-14.
Victory was sweet for the Canadians who practiced hard before going to France and then stayed strong and focused when on the field. They overcame challenges of unfamiliar horses, wet conditions and a different style of play giving them great satisfaction in their win.
Congratulations team Canada!
