2019 Taipei Cup

The HK Typhoons Selects had 2 teams (U8 and U10) participated in the Taipei Cup which we had a great time in for an outskirt sight-seeing, then followed with a team practice before tournament start.     This year all the teams in U8 and U10 divisions are very competitive and every game is a real close game.  

There were 6 teams with 2 pools in the U8 division.  U8 had their first game against the Taipei Tigers Team.  The game was tied at 1:1 in the 3rd period with 40 second before the game ended, and finished with a 2:1 shot out win.  They game had never been easy and these 2 teams met each other again in the semi-final.  This not only happened once, but also with the Silver Monsters Team.    Our U8 had a 3:0 win against Silver Monster in the 2nd round robin game and a 2:1 win again in the gold medal game.   We were proud of our players who fought really hard for the champion and they really deserved it.

The U10 division had 8 teams with 2 pools set up.    In the round robin games, our U10 team had a 2:0 win over the Taipei Tigers team and a 6:0 win over the Pirates team, but a 1:3 lost to the Silver Monsters team.   With a ranking #2 in Pool B, our U10 team then played against the Poseidon team who was ranking #1 in Pool A.     The score 1:0 had been last for 2 periods then pulled apart to 3:1 at the end.     In the gold meal game, our U10 team played again with the Silver Monster team, which lost by 0:1 and ended up with a silver medal home.    The luck was not with our U10 team this time but our players learnt a lot from the experience.

Both our U8 and U10 teams had a good start at the beginning of the season and will keep on working hard for more achievements.
