Game 12

December 15th, 2013              

    After being shorthanded in yesterdays game, the Storm were a little closer to full strength today. I'm not sure if that made a difference or not, although I am sure the kids felt a little fresher not having to take quite as many shifts during today's game. Maybe the blowout loss yesterday made a difference too, as the team came out of the gate a little in this game. Despite falling behind early, the kids battled back to make it a 5-2 game in the third period. Alas, two late (and I mean late) goals pushed the game completely out of reach, as they fell by a score of 7-2. Drew played well today, playing both wing positions and center at various points. He had a couple of chances on semi-breakaways, but couldn't get one behind the goaltender (becoming the only "Drew" on the team not to score today...). Overall it was a good game - the kind you expect to see out of the kids. Hopefully they can keep up this kind of progress and leave games like yesterday's behind them.
