Night Game

The team is trying to break their two game losing streak tonight. The game’s at 7:00p under the lights, which makes it a big game. Plus, if we win this game, we win the League title. That doesn’t mean we go to the State playoffs, but it would be a huge step. As I told the kids yesterday, we lost our home winning streak on Friday, we might as well break the road losing streak tonight.

Any suggestions on how to get the kids to play better on the road, or just play better, would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE:  One of the best games of which I’ve ever been a part.  My team struck first and added another in the second half.  The other team tied the game at two before we regained the lead with fifteen minutes to go.  My guys withheld a furious charge, but let in the tying goal with fifteen seconds to go in the game.  We go to overtime, but no goals were scored, ending the game in a 3-3 tie.

It wasn’t a win, but it broke our away game losing streak.

We were playing a team ahead of us in the rankings and favored to win.  Their coach praised our team, and I think he knew they got away with one.  If they get scored on in their next league game, I’m pretty sure we win the league.  Gotta check the by-laws.  If that’s the case, a major accomplishment.

It doesn’t look like we’ll make the state playoffs, but we should end with a winning record and a lot of respect.  A good first varsity season so far.
