This weekend we had another exciting game, despite losing 3-1 we played by far the best game we've had against Nonotuck all year. We ended the first down 1-0, it was very competitive, I could tell the kids were excited. In the second we each scored 1, Sean had a great goal with a nice assist by Ryan. We were able to prevent them from scoring when we had 2 penalties forcing a 5 on 3, that was awesome!!! Again we competed the whole period. In the third they scored 1 and we didn't manage to put one in the net, we did have multiple chances. We ended up losing 3-1, again by far the most competitive game we've had against them.
I know most of the kids are intimidated by # 2, rightfully so, that said they played tough and even blocked a few of his shots. I know Spencer and Ryan both hurt their foot blocking his shots.
The kids should be very proud, the improvement we've made from the beginning of the season until now has been tremendous!!
We only have a few games left I will be focusing some of practice on preparation for evals, these are only a few weeks away.
Thank you so much!!
