Our first game did not start the way we wanted going down 11-2. After we called a time out and re-organized we kept pace with a very strong University of Texas team who had former US National team player Brian Kirkland carrying the ball. Everyone dug deep but we could not claw back losing 51-38.
Our second game was against the host team. Steel Wheels where favoured to win the game and it showed for the first 5 minutes as we went up 6-0. Unfortunately fatigue set in and the host team tied things up by the end of the first quarter. The game went back and forth and traded a few turnovers. Towards the end of the games Edmonton’s experience took over and we won 44-40.
Tomorrow we have two tough games against Denver and St. Louis
