Hockey faces adversity, bounces back in big way

The boys hockey team faced its first bit of adversity last weekend, losing Friday and Saturday night to Marquette and CBC for their first two losses of the season.

The Tigers fell 4-3 to Marquette after taking an early 2-0 lead Friday night in a disappointing loss. The Tigers on Saturday night were just plan out played by the CBC Cadets, losing 3-0 in a game that was not that close. According to goalie Blake Chapman (12), the team let the emotions get the best of them and took a lot of bad penalties in both games.

“The mistakes in those two games were all mental and fixable,” Chapman said.

The Tigers were able to bounce back Monday night though after the tough weekend. They defeated Lafayette by the score of 5-0, with two of the goals coming from Charlie Freshman (11).

”It was a huge bounce back game, we came out hard and got the job done,” Chapman said, “It is a good building block for the games to come.”

The Tigers look to carry over the good performance from Monday night in their next game against Timberland. The game is at 9:30 at Kennedy Ice Rink on Friday night (Nov. 29).
