Teresa Hintz Scores a Goal that takes team to China
It was a goal she barely remembers because she was knocked out after she scored. With just seconds left in the game and a surprise reward to the winner of the match, Hintz worked hard to get to the ball and re-direct it at the goal. It resulted in a goal and a collision that knocked her out.
Her Seneca College team won the game and expected nothing more than a set of track suits as their reward. Instead they were surprised when the whole team was provided a FREE trip to China for winning to represent Canada on a tour in a series of exhibition matches and tours of the country. When you add up all the travel costs for a team to go to China, you could say that Teresa's goals was worth at least $40,000!!
Teresa said “ we didn’t do so well in China getting beat by some big scores but then again we didn’t expect to be playing teams with National Team players on them”. Nonetheless, the experience was one that Teresa will never forget and worth the concussion she had in order to score that magical goal. Well done Teresa!
