Strong Response...
by posted 02/01/2023

 

The boys and girls showed a lot of resiliency on Sunday morning and displayed an effort to be proud of.  After a lackluster game against a really good Braintree team on Saturday the coaches were looking for a strong team response on Sunday morning.  We fell behind (3)-goals in the 1st period, and if you layer in an early bird game in Bridgewater the environment could have quickly delved into a situation where they emotionally gave up.  But, they didn't and they chose to trust the process and each other - and we chipped away scoring three goals - and carrying the play in the second and third to drop a tight one {4-3}.  No shame in losing a tight one like that, and the kids showed tremendous resolve to hang in there, maintain their discipline, and push Hanover to the final second.  We are proud of them, and looking forward to finishing out the final leg of the season with everything that we have to offer and then some.  The coaches feel as if this team is playing their best hockey and looking to show the rest of the league down the final stretch and into the playoffs.

Joseph Mulkern {Hanover, 2.1.2023}

Perhaps, his father's 'mystery coach' pre-game address @ Jay Peak really resonated with Joe Mulkern, as he has had two (2-Goal) games in the past (3) games.  Joe has looked great since battling back from a wrist injury that hindered his ability to get on the ice for a big proportion of the season.  Joe's been playing really good hockey since his return and collected two goals on Sunday displaying 'slick hands' and patience to get his head up and pick his spot lighting the lamp dos times.  Cillian got us on the board on the power play, and Joe netted the 2nd and 3rd goal(s) and both were really good goals down low (amidst traffic) and not sure which one was better?  Key goals @ key junctures of the game - good stuff Joe!!!  Keep up the great work Joe, and you are peaking right @ the perfect time of the season.  

Skills tomorrow evening @ 8:00 PM {Ulin}!!!

On to Hanover...
by posted 01/28/2023

We didn't put forth our best effort this afternoon in Randolph.  Braintree is a very good team that is well coached and in order for us to play them comeptitively for all three periods we knew we needed everyone firing on all cylinders.  Mentally and emotionally it just wasn't there today for us.  We have been beaten this season - but today was the first time we got beat up.  I handed Thomas a shovel and the game puck and he is burying it in our backyard as I type. 

It is not what happens in life and everything about how we chose to respond to what has happened.  Tommorrow morning we get a chance to get right back @ against a good Hanover team which we have played super tight the last two times we played them.  We tied them - and squandered a two goal lead with under 5 mins to go to lose by one.  We can't change the outcome of the game today, and we will look to get back on track tomorrow morning @ 8:30 AM in Bridgewater.  

One player who was mentally and emotionally ready to play was Collette Gorham.  The referee grabbed me after the game and complimented Collette on her overall game.  Collette played with a level of tenacity and confidence that was admirable on multiple levels.  Even when we were down big she never wavered, never backed down, and played with a keen sense of resolve on every single shift.  We appreciate and respect your effort to always do your best Collette.  Your compete level and passion for the game never goes unnoticed.  You are a hockey player in every sense of the word!!!
