I got shelled last night and I feel it this morning. That game last night took a lot out of me physically. It isn’t everyday that my beginner team plays an intermediate team of that caliber. I had a couple nice diving stops and moves across the crease. Overall, I played a very good game. Just wish teams like that wouldn’t be playing in a beginner division. Course, everyone is looking for an edge.
My 1-0-3 Windmeuller Electric team faced off against an undefeated Mullets team today in my Beginner ice hockey league. After not playing ice hockey for a week and a half, I was geeked to play. I played probably one of my best games in a 7-0 loss. Yes, loss. The other team was heads and shoulders above my team in terms of talent. I would go as far to say this other team could be playing on intermediate as they had no weak skaters or shooters.
Every goal that they scored was a good one. The last goal of the game was the only one I made a mistake on, and that was because I just lost my concentration at that point in the game. Gotta remember that when the game is 5-0 and you make a big deal out of one goal with only 10 minutes left in the game, it isn’t worth it. 🙂
My committment to getting better at playing ice hockey starts next week when I log more ice time by playing either at lunch one time a week or playing drop in late at night. I want to succeed and play better at ice hockey. I am already doing decent this season, but there is MUCH room for improvement.
