“We ran out of juice,” said head coach Brad Pelletier in a press release. The girls were tired. You have to understand that they were at the Canadian Championship, in Fredericton, before the Games. They haven’t been home for almost 20 days. It caught up with them at the end and the BC girls were just too strong today.” (NP)
