Played twice yesterday, and lost twice. The story of my season so far. I am learning to roll with the punches though for all intensive purposes.
The first game we lost 6-4, and the other team had good quality deflections and chances. I played right about average, and that isn’t going to win many games. I was not as upset about this game as I was about the second game I lost 5-1. I let in a real bad goal from center ice to start off the period and I never really recovered. There was a bank in off my leg from behind the net goal and a bad breakaway decision I made. I came out too far to take the breakaway away, but he easily stickhandled around me and put it in the net. I should have sprawled out and took away the whole bottom of the net and made him fall over me. Oh well….mistakes I learned from, and with all the good games despite my record, I knew I was up for a poor showing.
Got an advanced league game tonight, and then I skate out tomorrow. Looking forward to playing.
