Men’s Junior National Team sweeps Mexico

June 18, 2012 | Field Hockey Canada |

The Canadian Men’s Junior National Team had a very strong performance this weekend against the Mexican Junior National Team in Guadalajara.  Throughout the three match series, Canada scored a convincing 17 goals while Mexico was only able to penetrate Canadian defence for one point. 

“We had a strong performance,” says Head Coach Mathias Ahrens.  “We achieved most of our targets here in Guadalajara and have a clear focus on the next steps in our preparation for the Junior Pan American Championships.” 

When the team returns to Guadalajara in September for the Championships, they will be hungry for another successful performance – one that would earn them a ticket to the 2013 Junior World Cup.

The Junior Men will now continue training domestically as they compete in the upcoming Field Hockey Canada Senior National Championships, June 29th – July 3rd in Surrey, BC.  They will look to come out strong against Canada’s top field hockey athletes. 

For now, it’s the ladies’ turn to take on Mexico.  The Women’s Junior National Team will compete in a three match series against the Mexican Junior Team beginning tonight at 7:00pm local time in Surrey, BC.
