FROM THE COACH: By the time it was all said and done, it was a tough weekend for us. We got a shot at the championship, and we definitely played a decent game, but just couldn't quite get it done. Overall it was a great game with good quality chances on both sides. I thought our semi-final against CMU was a slog-fest, we didn't create a lot, or play out of their pressure well, but we grinded out a result which was good learning for the boys. Against Brandon, we definitely found our game again, but unfortunately didn't quite capitalize on our quality chances in the first half. The good news is we played well against a quality side in Brandon, and we're extremely optimistic and pumped for regionals. Now with a heart-breaking final loss, I know that our hunger for a championship will be at an all time high. - Joey Passi


PLAYER’S VIEW: This past weekend was a tough battle and our team fought hard. Not an easy one to lose being the last game for myself and other seniors on the team. But I’m proud of all the guys and looking forward to rebounding at regionals. - Braeden Owen
