In the Crease: First Test, Tune Up

by Nate Gordon ’16

On Saturday, November 16, 2013, the team will face its first test against the Académie St. Louis in a scrimmage at Williston’s Lossone Arena.

The game will conclude the team’s first week of practice, which coaches Derek Cunha and Kyle Hanford were very pleased with. Cunha says that “the energy level was really high. It was really encouraging.”

Last year’s team captain, Jean-Gabriel Lacombe and current member of the team, Will Flynn ’15, attended the Académie St. Louis, a school from Quebec, Canada.

Coach Cunha says that this game is an opportunity for the team to make mistakes and learn from them. “I think it would actually be good to make some mistakes, so we can learn from them early.”
