The first game of the 2015 Pan-American Ice Hockey Games took place in Mexico City today, with Colombia eventually taking the 8-0 win over the Argentina A team.
For Colombia, the win was a great start for their small hockey program. A year ago, the team went 3-2-0 in five games at the first ever PAIHG’s, earning a bronze medal along the way following a 9-1 over Argentina. The two teams also met earlier in the tournament last year, with Colombia securing their first ever hockey game 11-1.
Today, however, Colombia would record their first ever hockey shutout with an 8-0 victory. While stats and info from the tournament is very scarce, it’s unknown yet as to who the big offensive stars were in the opening game.
Brazil and the Mexican U17 team will play each other in the second men’s game of the day at 3:30pm EST.
