Team Canada Men’s Team played an exceptional game against Goalball powerhouse Lithuania.
The team lead 2-1 at half-time, and were tied 4-4 at full-time. The two teams remained tied through 1 overtime period.
Unfortunately, the team could not withstand the onslaught, succumbing 5-4 at 1:35 of the second overtime.
As an organization, we are extremely proud of these 6 young men. Tokyo here we come!
Unfortunately, the Rio 2016 Paralympics are over for Canadian Goalball. The women played a hard-fought defensive battle against the US, losing 2-0 on two goals by Jen Armbruster.

Here’s hoping Lithuania men & US women win gold as we would place 5th with both teams (highest ranking we can have not being in the semi-finals).
