Double Header Weekend

We had two hockey games this weekend. Yesterday we played Prowl #1 up in Yorktown and won 5-1 in an exciting game that saw the Prowl goalie play one heck of a game. We were already down two players (one with a broken arm and another out of town with his family) so we were missing a couple key kids. As usual Justin and Peter did an outstanding job for us. Brett was kind of asleep out there and missed a couple of great opportunities but he almost had a breakaway so that was pretty exciting.

Today didn't look like it was going to be a good day to Mite 1 because in addition to us being down two kids we were missing one more and Justin wasn't feeling good. Coach Derek had a little pre-game chat with the team and whatever he said must have worked because I haven't seen Brett play a better game! He was hustling, he kept his stick on the ice, he went after the puck and made some good plays happen. I was very proud of him. I'm just as proud with the team because these kids played their hearts out! Down 3-1 in the third they rallied to win 4-3. Mite 2 played an awesome game and it was extremely exciting and the kind of game that will make both teams better. We tried to keep either Justin or Peter on the ice at all times and rotated lines like crazy. I have to mention Nathan as well, he's absolutely on fire.

Brian, you're boy is playing great and making smart, heads up plays. He's awesome and he's got a good supporting cast around him.
