Hockey adventures

 

By Doug Kennedy

 

Josh Howald’s overseas inline hockey ended in the semi-final with a 7-1 loss to Switzerland. The Swiss lost in the final in overtime to the French team. Josh’s team went 3-0 in round robin, defeating Hungary, Great Britain and the U.S. They beat the U.S. in the quarter final before losing out. Josh said it was an unbelievable experience.

 

“We definitely had some ups and downs, some frustrations and some awesomeness. It’s a trip I’ll never forget, anyways.”
