Canada kicks a field goal

OSTERSUND – William Dion’s Quebec squad made it double bronze for Canada at the World Juniors today.

Dion and company were absolutely devastated following yesterday’s semifinal loss to the eventual champs, the United States. It took a long time for the skip to drag himself out of the locker room to face the music (ie, the media).

Dion was great with the quotes all week. His closing zinger came today, after clinching the bronze: “We’ve got to come home with something around our necks... either a medal, or a rope.”

Dion will move into men’s play next year, but for now, it’s time to focus on football. He’s a kicker for the University of Sherbrooke, both placekicking and punting. Clearly, his last name isn’t nearly long enough – or strange enough – for him to make the pro leagues, but what can you do?
