On Saturday, January 25 at 4 p.m., Williston Boys Hockey will be looking to redeem themselves against Albany Academy (6-8-3) after a 6-5 loss to Millbrook (13-8-1) on Wednesday, the 22nd.
Williston Head Coach Derek Cunha says that the mindset the Wildcats need to have is “that we’re starting from scratch, that it’s a new season, a new beginning, and that we get back to one game at a time, we don’t care about anything that’s happened in the past. All about the moment.”
Since the holiday break, Williston has gone 3-3 with two one-goal losses. The Albany Cadets have won two games, lost three, and tied one. The Cadets, like Williston, have a large group of juniors on the team. Of the 28 players listed on Millbrook’s roster, twelve of them will be graduating in 2015. Junior forward Shawn Knowlton leads the team with thirteen goals and 25 assists.
Most recently, the Cadets were defeated by Gunnery 7-0. On January 18th, against Gunnery, the Wildcats gave up three goals in the third period and were defeated 6-2.
On Thursday, the 23rd, the team took a break from its regular routine and skated on Williston’s pond. Below are some pictures: All Photos Courtesy of Paul Rutherford
