Exciting Junior Ice Hockey Game


On Oct 16th, The Okaya Mayor’s Cup was held over two days at the in Yamabiko ice arena in Okaya city. Six elementary school ice hockey teams from Nagano prefecture, or 120 pupils took part. They fighted powerful games.

My nephew, Daichi Yokoyama played in the games as a captain of the Yamabiko Busters. Unfortunately, the team lost the games, but their fight was applaudable. Anyway, the small ice hokey player play was amazing. Their skating is quick and smart. They showed their fabulous turns on the ice. They were totally brave. For me, it was unbelievable! On ice, my legs become looks lake the Bambi’s. I was impressive by their skating technique.

The audience enjoyed heated games with big cheer. Parents shot their children’s play. Some parent is so excited. They shouted louder than the manager of the team.
