27.06.04 Athens Warm Up Tournament

The United States won a close 33-32 final to win the Canada Cup, an International Pre-Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby Tournament involving National Teams from five countries.

The game was a close affair with the US leading throughout in front of a capacity crowd at Bonsor Recreation
Centre in Burnaby, BC.

The US had leads of 17-14 at half time and 24-22 after three-quarters. The game was tied at 30 with two minutes to play but the US kept possession to take the win and the number one seed leading into Athens.

The US won a bizarre semi-final over Germany to get into the finals as the Germans slowed the game down to a snail's pace to counter the States' firepower. The game was tied at one after one quarter but the US eventually prevailed 13-7. The Canadians had a tough semi in the morning as they fought to get by Great Britain 30-27.

In the bronze medal game, Great Britain defeated Germany 36-29.

In the battle for fifth and sixth place, Belgium defeated Canada Ice (the Canadian developmental team) 38-32.
