SOCHI, March 14, /ITAR-TASS/. The captain of the reigning Paralympic champions in ice sledge ice hockey, USA, looks for a rebound in the 2014 Winter Paralympic Games final match for the gold.
The very first ever Paralympic ice sledge hockey game between the much experienced and many times awarded team from the United States and team Russia took place on Tuesday night and ended 1-2 in favor of the Russians.
“We are really hungry to get back and play them again,” the US Ice Sledge Hockey Team’s Captain, Andy Yohe, said commenting on the forthcoming final game against the Russian squad.
In a semifinal game on Thursday night, the US team left the Canadians for the hopes of the bronze, beating them 3-0 in a spectacular game. The Russian team left the Norwegians behind with 4-0 score in another semifinal clash earlier in the day to qualify for its first ever ice sledge hockey final.
US 16-year-old Declan Farmer became the hero of the match as he netted two first goals and then assisted his teammate Joshua Pauls, who scored the third and the final goal of the match.
“We are going right out and playing the same game,” US Team Captain Yohe said, making comments about the upcoming match against the Russian team.
“We felt like we could really played great against the Russians last time. We are going up there and do just the same things we just did tonight, and work hard and hopefully come out with a goal,” he said.
Commenting on the match against the Canadians, Yohe said, “I thought we really moved the puck well up there today and that was our probably the key to the win.”
“We were just moving the puck in the deep and playing down a narrow end as much as we could,” he said.
US team’s Head Coach Jeff Sauer earlier said that everyone on his team were hungry to play the Russians again.
