We got on the bus Thursday evening and drove to Pittsburgh where we would play Robert Morris University. The late bus allowed us the chance to get into town without having bus legs for the game. Unfortunately, that did not seem to help us have an edge on the Colonials and we lost the game 6-1. In the room after the game, everyone decided this had to be used as a turning point in our season.
The following night we played at home against Mercyhurst- our first home game of the season. We had a great crowd! Thanks everyone for that. It really makes the difference in a game. Our banners were dropped from the ceiling and our rings were presented at center ice. It was a great feeling to see both of these things happen. It lit a little fire underneath us all for the start of the game.
We had a strong team effort and came out on top 4-3.
This week, we head to Ohio State for a pair of games against the Buckeyes- our coach’s alma mater. I know he’ll want to go in there and make a statement. We are going to assure he does just that.
Next Tuesday, the 19, we have our next home game against RIT. It is A4A night (Athletes for Athletes). This is a tradition that our school has started which requires all student-athletes from every sport to attend selected games throughout the year. It adds a great element to the game and will for sure be an electric crowd because of our opponent. We hope to see everyone there! Thanks for reading.
Keep your stick on the ice,
