World Championships 2013
02/06/2013 Game 1
Bulgaria 0 Great Britain 13
Team GB coasted to an easy win over Bulgaria, this game win not tell the coaches much as most of the game was played in the Bulgarian end of the rink which was why netminder Alex Birch faced only faced 1 shot all game, games like this can be a nightmare for netminder's as they simply watch the rest of their teamate's perform in front of them it is testament to the professionalism of players like Alex that they can be focussed all the time.
This was a very business like performance by the GB team who enforced the tempo of the game throughout. This was partially due to the Bulgarians only having 8 outfield skaters and due to the skill and patience of a very experienced GB team.
Goals and assist were a plenty in this game with nearly all the team getting on the game sheet big points tallies went to Karl Niamatali and Phil Hamer with 5 points each and Nathan Finney who registered 2 goals and 4 assists for a tally of 6 points
