The Diabolics Angels:
To pull the team to the top and give it the possibility of making more mixed matches, the team fills out in 2005 of boys, not hockey players, but avid to practise the hockey. We wish to keep the feminine base of the team, that’s why a men’s “quotas” is established at the rate of 2 girls for 1 boy.
