Good to see the boys challenged to play new positions. May need to spend time telling them the basics of each. On some shifts it seemed like there were three centers (which even the European U18s have a hard time pulling off). Sometimes 4 SJ uniforms within 10' of the puck on the sideboards..
Another reminder about protecting a lead with limited time left might help; my son blew that on the final shift. Given what happened in Denver they also could probably use a reminder about the importance of the first shift of each period and after each goal.
Shift length/hustle also occasionally issues. Taser? Have long-shift kids become the doormen for a shift or two?

Nice result, including getting Elliot the shutout.
Having watched this girl's team for some time, it seems like their continued reliance on 1-3 girls to carry the puck has ultimately come back to haunt them.
Mush better shift length control. Not yet the 14s (they're methodical about 35-45 seconds and off), but much better. Heard the coach may have mentioned something about that before the game.
Probably a good team to keep scrimmaging; the boys did not back down from the girls as much as they usually do.
Again, some of us knew Cantelmo was a demon at D (we used him to shut down the SharpShooters last summer), but it was great to see Slash out there on the right flank again.

Seems like after the first two quick goals the boys got big eyes and decided it'd be a good day to rack up some easy points. Team play (including shift length) took a hit accordingly, and they boys almost got caught.
Great to see lots of boys playing new positions. Sure, some of us knew Wolford could play D without it affecting his point totals, but who knew about Sean "Danny Boy(le)" Sweeney?
