The Fuengirola Lions inline hockey club last weekend hosted the second International Veterans Inline Hockey Tournament (which it co-organised) at the Santa Fe rink in Los Boliches.

Teams travelled from the UK, Finland and Madrid to participate in the event, alongside the hosts from Fuengirola.

Although the Lions were not the biggest favourites to win the tournament, with the coaching of Lars Christiansen, they went on to lose just one game in the whole tournament (against Pahalampi on Saturday) to progress to the final. The Lions won the tightly-contested showpiece event against last year's champions, Brighton Rock, 4-3.

Most of the games were streamed live on the Fuengirola Lions Facebook page, where they can still be replayed.
