Jamaica's Maroons still impressive at 2015 Canada Cup

I think that the floorball tournament was a great success for us, in spite of losing three of four matches, we gave everyone a rough time. This was a completely different team from last year and we played much better in terms of our cooperation and overall skill. The draw in our last Division match was difficult to take as the goal come with hardly any time left. It also meant that going into the knock-out round we would face one of the favourites to win the competition. We were not put off. Unfortunately we lost the match, but gave them a great fight, so much so that they were exhausted going on to the next match. I believe that we achieved a lot since we don’t have a formal league or indoor facilities and had to pray for the funding. The one point is more than we got last year and I’m sure that next year we’ll get our first win. On behalf of the entire team I’d like to thank everyone that helped us, family, friends, sponsors, the National Office and the Stadium management, but especially the Europeans who spent six months working with us and Dario for being with us at the tournament.”
