Wildfire Parents - please share this with your players:
I just thought I'd share this all with you. The team who won it all was the Comox Currents. If you thought our 0-3-1 and 8th out of 9 teams finish doesn't sound very good well consider this. We tied Comox 4-4 and we were the only team to get a point off them (2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie). Nobody else could.
The second place team ended up being Surrey. We played them first and if you remember we took 16 minutes of penalties, made 4-in mistakes and made passes that were too far ahead all morning. Despite that we still only lost 5-4, AND we threw away a great chance to tie it up when we made a mistake on a 2-girl power play and put too many players on the ice (coaching mistake).
The team that ended up third overall was Delta. We actually played Delta very well but couldn't crack the defense or goalie. We also made the same mistakes with penalties and botched passes.
There were 9 teams and we played three of the toughest, and we did really well against them. The 4-ins and the missed passes will come with time and practice. We're a new team (many players are new). (Effort + Desire) x Time = Skill. We can see the effort and desire. Let's put in the time!
Plus I'm not sure but I think we had the most fun so first place where it counts!
Coach Holly and I couldn't be prouder!
