Coachs Corner Weekend Recap March 12

Coachs Corner Weekend Recap March 12

Our goal for the week was to pick up two wins, but we didn't accomplish it.  We beat St. Joe's 8-4 on Tuesday, and lost 7-6 to Bryant on Saturday.  The good news is we're 1-0 in the conference, the bad news we're 2-4 overall.  The one goal losses are disappointing, and obviously something we need to fix.

 

Tuesday was a strange game.  We finished way ahead in every statistical category, except the score.  We outshot St. Joe's 49-16, GB's were 48-27, and we were 11-15 on face-offs.  Their goalie played well, and we shot poorly.  The game was tied 2-2 at half, and we were able to outscore them 6-2 in the second half.  Robert Church (2g 2a) and Aaron Prosser (2g) led the offense, and the D played well as a unit.  Deven Thomas had a great day at the X, winning 11 of 15.

 

Saturday was a frustrating day.  We started the game off really strong, and took a 4-0 first quarter lead.  After the first quarter, we couldn't get anything going offensively and we couldn't win a face-off.  The defense was solid most of the day.  I could go over a list of things that went wrong, but in the end Bryant made more plays than we did.  Everyone, coaches and players, know we let one get away.  We're all upset with the result.

 

We're struggling right now, but have no time to feel sorry for ourselves.  We play Bucknell tomorrow at home at 4pm, and play at Mt. St. Mary's on Saturday at 1pm.  The coaches and players are all doing our best to figure it out, and even up our record going into the heart on conference play.  Tuesday is huge; Bucknell is a very good team.  Any support is greatly appreciated.
