First Game... sort of

We had our first pseudo-game this past weekend, and it was fun to be back on the ice. The kids got a taste of playing on their respective teams, and it felt good to be back on the ice. Being the pushover that I am agreed to help coach both teams, which should make for an interesting season, to say the least. The biggest issue will be who will get the majority of my time. It’s not easy being in demand, if that’s what you can call it.

Going into this game, for which the kids were thrilled to pieces, I figured the girls would control the game because they are older and faster, but also because N’s team is pretty young and inexperienced. This, however, was not the case. There are a few good players on N’s team, and they carried the team into victory. Some of A’s teammates were slacking a little, which helped N’s cause, but give N’s team some credit, they did well.

With the first game behind us, we can look forward to a fun, albeit busy, season. This should be interesting, let the games begin.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Matthew Paulson.
