Emma Hurley had a fantastic game in goal. She came up with some big saves that kept us in the game and got the rest of the team fired up. We played a good first half. We came out slow in the 3rd quarter and gave up 2 quick goals. As a team, we need to work on putting together a full 60 minutes of hockey. Jenna Piantieri provided us with a spark on the attack after making the move from defense to mid. We had some exciting moments on attack at the end of the game and we are hoping to take that momentum into tomorrow's game.
