In a shocking result at the Pan-American Ice Hockey Games, Chile has won their first ever ice hockey game in just their third attempt after beating Brazil's B team 6-0.

Carlos Valdebenito was the star for Chile, scoring three goals and adding an assist for a team that had yet to score in any previous contest. Cristobal Vega, Miguel Villarroel and Stephane Binnebeek all contributed goals for the team that had only nine players on the roster.

The win is the first ever for Chile, who The Chilean Ice and Inline Hockey Federation was joined the IIHF in 2000, becoming the third South American country to do so. The country currently has three ice rinks, with Punta Arenas playing host to the annual Copa Invernada tournament each July. The team does participate in IIHF Inline Hockey World Championship and FIRS Inline Hockey World Championship tournaments, but had never played in an international hockey event until this week.

The win came during the first day of playoff action at the Pan-Am tournament, with Chile playing a second game against Argentina later in the day.
