Belarus defeat UAE at 2018 Christmas Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament

Belarus is hosting the Christmas Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament 2018. On January 4, like a year ago, the teams of Belarus and the United Arab Emirates fought on the ice.

In 2017, Arab hockey players were not lucky enough - 7:3 in favor of Belarus, the hosts of the tournament.

In 2018, the two squads again came to the ice arena. The UAE fans were waiting for new tactics and a stubborn battle. But again the Belarusians were stronger. The national team of Belarus defeated its rivals from the UAE 12:7. 

The President of Belarus also played several minutes and scored three goals.

He also received penalty time after a foul, for the first time in the history of the tournament.
