The Wildcats will be looking to redeem themselves after a 6-2 loss to Gunnery, in which they allowed three goals in the third period. Williston Head Coach Derek Cunha says of this game, “After watching the film [of the game] yesterday, we saw we made a lot of mistakes that are very correctable. We need to not duplicate those errors.”

About tomorrow’s game Cunha says, “Much like all the teams that we play, we need to play our best to have a chance to win.”
