# 7 - NL Next Games Team Win The Acropolis Cup : 2012

NL Canada Games Team playng in Italy 

The NLSA Canada Games Men’s team won the 31st annual Acropolis Cup played in Italy. The team defeated Italian club Casalvieri Frosinone 2-1 to take home the silverware. Jordi Slaney opened the scoring in the 10th minute and Josh Hanrahan increased the lead early in the second half but the Italians answered back midway in the second half to set up an exciting finish.

Coach's Corner Comments:  The  Acropolis tournament was a great tournament for our next NL Canada Games to compete in.  The tournament gave our NL games coaches Mike Power and Paul Slaney the opportunity to take a look at the teams current roster. The games and the winning gave the players the opportunity to gel and experience the feeling of winning. Actually, I'm looking forward to watching this team compete in the Provincial Challenge Cup on an exhibition basis in 2013.
