Game vs Blues (L 1-2) MVP(S): The Team
There are three things you can count on in life:
3) Reds playing a low scoring game
I'm a year older, and the heart is weaker. I had high hopes that this new version of the Reds would produce goals like Providence produces mayors with felonies. Guess not !!
Well, the Reds lost the opener 2-1 to a good Blues squad. Although we have a lot of work to do, we did have stretches of the game where we completely dominated the play. The boys seriously tried to work on some of the stuff we talked about in our practices. You could tell that we were a bit rusty as the passes were just off the mark.
Overall, I thought it was a good effort. We simply ran into a very good goalie who seemed to stop everything. Another good sign is that even down by two, the boys did not give up. We scored my favorite type of goal....a dirty, go to the net rebound. Conor Dionne started his first Bantam game off with a goal, assisted by Jake Albanesa and Teagan Stringfellow. All of our first year bantams played great and none seemed intimidated at all. We had a couple of opportunities with the goalie pulled, but just couldn't get the equalizer.
Another solid week of practice ahead and a date with the Bruins next !!
BACKCHECK Boys !!
