Game Recap 9/3 and Final Game Info
2024-03-14 12:07

Hi Everybody!

Last Saturday we played our final home game of the season. I want to thank all of you that have helped with the various tasks involved with being the host team. All season you have done an unbelievable job taking care of the secretary, live reporting, kiosk and building the court as well as cheering us on from the stands. Thank you so much for your engagement and support! It is greatly appreciated!

GAME

This is the same Lund team that we met in the Fall. After playing against them we discovered that they have 2-3 very developed players that they rely on for most of their offense. On defense they would be aggressive and not allow space and their goalkeeper is very good. This is exactly what they did. We came into this game with a depleted squad of only 12 outfield players. This meant that the boys would have to make unusual substitutions with uneven lines. In the first period we were fortunate to only allow them two goals. They played with a team approach and created many chances. This is evident in that both of their goals were scored by the same defensive player coming from an assist. The first period ended 0-2 to Lund.

We knew that they would change up in the second period and they did. They shifted from team play to focusing on their best player getting the ball to him and letting him dominate their possession. He scored two unassisted goals within the first minute of the period. At the same time, we adjusted our strategy from defensive to offensive focus. The boys initially recovered from the shock allowing two immediate goals and did not allow them to score again until 13 minutes into the period when Lund’s key player struck once again for the third time in the period. We became so desperate to score a goal that we lost focus on our defense and left a Lund player completely alone who ended up gathering a long pass and scoring just as the period ran out leaving a 0-6 scoreline. That goal really frustrated the boys and made it difficult for us regain focus going into the third period.

The third period began with us picking up a penalty within the first minute. However, the boys responded by scoring a short-handed goal and killing off the rest of the penalty. Lund then continued to play a hybrid strategy of the first two periods by focusing on their key players and looking for simple passes when we double teamed them. Their key players went on to score five more goals between them for the remainder of the period with a few more from team play. As a team we were frustrated and lost our focus. We were not communicating with each other, and we did not work as a team defensively and offensively we did not use our team play. It was a tough game that we should be able to learn from.

OUR FINAL GAME

This Sunday 17/3 we will play our final game of the season. It would be great if we could have as many of the boys participate as possible! So, if it is possible to choose floor ball over other competing activities this weekend it would be greatly appreciated!

It is an early start (samling 08:00) all the way up in Helsingborg. The game starts at 09:00. I have space for 3 in my car. Please let me know if you would like to get a ride with us by sending me a text or email.

Also, since it is our last game of the season, we thought it would be nice to eat lunch together after the game. In order to include as many as possible one suggestion is to drive back to Pizza Hut in Lockarp. We are open to suggestions. It would be at your own cost and everyone that would like to is welcome to join.

I hope to see all the boys at practice tonight!

 

All the best,

Bob

Match Recap Gantofta 2/3
2024-03-05 05:21

Hi Everybody!

On Saturday we played our fifth game of the Spring series against Gantofta. Gantofta won their Fall series and currently sit top of our table together with Höllviken, so this is a strong team to say the least. We only had a squad of 13 players which left us with only 12 outfield players.  

Much like the Höllviken game, it took the boys a little time to settle into the game. Gantofta scored a goal within the first minute and they followed up with two more within the first 5 minutes. Six minutes into the game the score was 0-3 to Gantofta. After their third goal we started to settle down and began playing much tighter on defence.  We were able to score a goal and the first period finished with a 1-3 lead to Gantofta. Gantofta is a strong offensive team, so our plan was to play very defensively in the first period and change our approach in the second period.

In the second period, Gantofta scored four goals in the first two minutes of the period. This drained our energy and mental strength, and we began to lose focus. Some players grew frustrated and angry and allowed negative emotions to take over. This is one aspect of mental strength that we often talk about at practice, how it is important to control these strong emotions and not let them take over. When things are going against us, we need to fight to remain positive and focused, otherwise negativity will rob us of our focus and our ability to do our best. Some players did remain focused and continued working. Our best goal of the game came towards the end of the second period after being dominated all period. Knut pressured and won the ball (steg 1) and then found Neo in front of the goal with a nice pass that led to a goal (steg 2). The period ended with the score 4-12 to Gantofta.

The third period continued much as the second period. It was a tough game against a strong team. This game was very similar to our game against Höllviken. Not just the final score. We met the strongest team in the series with a diminished squad and we did not perform our best. The biggest difference between the two games is that against Höllviken we remained positive and kept fighting the entire game. In this game we lost our focus as a team.

However, there is one very positive thing that we should keep in mind. Not one single team has scored 6 goals in a game against this Gantofta team all season both Fall and Spring. Not even Höllviken. They only scored 4 against this Gantofta team.

Practice at our usual times and locations this week and our next game is on Saturday at Kirsebergs Sporthall samling 11:30. I hope to see all the boys there!

All the best,

Bob

 

Practice Game Recap 15/2 against F09-10
2024-02-16 10:01

Hi Everybody!

 

Just a few quick thoughts about our game today.

 

Today we played a practice game against Malmö FBC F09-10, and it was a fun and exciting game.

The last time we played against this team the girls won the match pretty easily however, that was not the case today. I am so proud of the boys and all the progress they have all made individually and as a team. The last few weeks this team has taken large steps in their development by quickly learning and executing advanced tactics compared to where we began this season.

Today we introduced completely new tactics that we have never even practiced, and the boys understood and implemented the strategies with very limited explanation. It was exciting to see! We talk a lot about mental toughness, focus and discipline and the boys showed all these today.

I encourage you to ask the boys about our tactics and game plan. I am not completely sure of the final score. We won with a score of either 5-7 or 5-8.

 

There is one very unfortunate result from today’s game. Gustav had a fall and injured his hand and needed to go to the emergency room. I do not know the extent of the injury yet.

The boys were happy about the victory today, but the mood and thoughts in the locker room were mostly on Gustav. Toward the end of the game, as the boys were struggling to hold on for the win, they were encouraging each other by saying “FOR GUSTAV!”.

We all wish you a speedy recovery Gustav.

 

All the best,

 

Bob

 

p.s. We will hold practice during sportlov for those that are in town. I have extended the invitation to several other teams so hopefully we can gather enough players to play some fun games.  Practice times are Tuesday and Thursday at Toftanäs Sporthall from 18:30-20:00.

 

Game Recap Malmhaug 10/2
2024-02-11 16:57

Hi Everybody!

It’s long one, please take the time to read and share with the boys.

Yesterday we played our 4th game of the Spring series against Malmhaug. This is not the same Malmhaug team we met in the Fall, but rather a more developed and competitive team in their club.

Once again, the coach of the opposing team took issue with us having 3 over age players on our team sheet meaning one of our older players could not participate in the match. This time Rufus was not allowed to play. Rules are rules and we have already been granted exception as a team for our boys born 2010. We have 3 players born before that and we are only allowed to play 2 in a game. If anyone has questions or concerns about this, please contact me or anyone on the coaching staff for further explanation. It breaks our hearts to exclude any of our boys. Going forward our last few games of the season we will abide by the rules in order to be sure to not incur any unnecessary fines or penalties to the club.

THE GAME

We knew in advance that we would be without Ismael for this game. Then the evening before we were forced to cut Rufus from the lineup. The morning of the game Oscar woke up feeling ill meaning that we would be without 3 of our regular defensive players. On top of that Christian was not able to join us meaning that I would be without my trusted confidant and right-hand. Our practice all week focused on implementing new formations and tactics meaning we would push the boys out of their comfort zone, and you never know how the response will be as a team. I knew it could be risky but we need to keep evolving as much as possible the remainder of the season.

Their response was incredible!

I don’t want to give away our strategy here but please ask the boys to explain it to you or speak with us coaches after practice if you are curious.

We spent a lot of time in our pre-game meeting reviewing our lineup and discussing individual roles. I could see that a few of the boys were quite nervous and the best way to overcome nerves is with preparation. We were forced to reinforce our defensive squad with Viggo, Mateo, Max and Levi. All four of them are not used to playing defence, but they ALL did a fantastic job filling in our defensive gaps.

Period 1

It took about 3 minutes for Malmhaug to score the first goal of the game. We encouraged the boys to stay focused and continue with the game plan. The rest of the period was a back-and-forth affair with the period ending with a 3-3 scoreline.

Period 2

We could see and hear that our strategy was working so we made our planned changes going into the second period. We were creating chances, but it was not until Malmhaug committed a penalty that we took the lead through a powerplay goal. Directly after the following face off we got another goal giving us a two-goal lead. About a minute later we committed a foul and Malmhaug were awarded a penalty shot. Elias made a great save and maintained our two-goal advantage! A couple minutes later they caught us in confusion during a free hit and they snuck in behind our defence for and easy tap in goal. We continued to keep focus and work our game plan and 3 minutes later we found the back of the goal again regaining our two-goal advantage. The second period ended with a 4-6 scoreline in our favour.

Period 3

We made our planned adjustments for the final period. The boys were focused and working hard. They were disrupting Malmhaug’s flow by blocking shots and we were creating offense at the other end. As the period wore on, I saw that with all our great efforts Malmhaug was starting to throw everything they had at us by playing all their most developed players and playing much more physically. With just over half the period played they scored and reduced our lead to just one. I noticed that they were trying to exploit some of our weaknesses, and I wanted to make a change in tactics, but I didn’t want to affect the boys’ confidence either by calling a timeout. Luckily for us our opponents did it for us! With 5 minutes left in the game Malmhaug called a timeout and I immediately adjusted our setup and the boys understood without hesitation. This frustrated Malmhaug as we quickly reestablished control in our offensive zone resulting in them committing a penalty and giving us a man advantage. 15 seconds into the penalty they demonstrated their frustration again and committed a second penalty giving us a two-man advantage. 12 seconds later we scored and regained a two-goal lead. 90 seconds later we scored again giving us a 3-goal lead with about 90 seconds left in the game. It is important to know and remember that the last 3 minutes of the game is effective time meaning that the clock is stopped whenever play stops so a lot can happen during this time. However, our boys kept focus and played out the game to a 3-goal victory!

When we win, we hand out 3 different awards and a game ball. We now let the boys decide the recipient of the 3 awards and this week’s selections were:

VIGGO – Hardest Blocked Shot – The boys have to compare bruises and decide who has the biggest, bluest bruise. Viggo had a perfectly ball-shaped bruise on his inner thigh. OUCH! Look for the picture on our team webpage.

FRANK – Most Blocked Shots – The boys selected Frank for this one as he did an excellent job defensively by never giving up on plays and making sure he or his stick were in the way of their passing lanes. He constantly disrupted and frustrated the Malmhaug offense.

SAMUEL – Mr Hustle – The boys gave this award to Samuel as he put in a really good effort all over the pitch. He made several really good defensive plays in critical moments, scored 3 goals, and had two assists.

ELIAS – GAME BALL – Elias played a fantastic game in goal. He made so many incredible saves throughout the game and even saved a penalty! He controlled play when possessing the ball, made good decisions when releasing the ball and even made good throws that led to offensive situations.

A couple more quick notes about the day. Even though Rufus was not allowed to play he came and supported his team from the bench. I was so happy that he did that!

Also, Oscar woke up feeling under the weather, but he still came out and produced analysis for us from his perspective that helped us in the breaks. Two really good examples of teamwork and leadership!

Please, don’t forget to check out our team website at: https://malmofbc.sportadmin.se/start/?ID=280641

You can find updates, pictures, and our calendar events there.

Please note that we will practice as normal this week on Tuesday but our practice on Thursday has been moved to Toftanäs at 18:30 -20:00 where we will play a practice game against F09-10.

Also, please send me a SMS or mail with quick info of availability during Sportlov. The plan is to practice as usual, but I will also check if there are other teams that want to practice together for the fun of it.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope to see all the boys at practice next week.

All the best,

Match Recap Höllviken 21/1
2024-01-23 12:13

Hi Everybody!

On Sunday we played our second game of the Spring series against Höllviken IBF P11.  This is one of the teams that we lost to in the Fall series. As we experienced in the Fall this is a well drilled and organized team with a very competitive mindset. Going into this game we knew that we would be without a few of our more seasoned players meaning we would have to adjust our lineup to compensate for this. On top of that, for the first time, the coach from the opposing team took issue with the fact that we had three over age players on the team sheet. The rules state that we can only play two of them in a game. I will not go into all the details and discussion that followed but rather say that we made the painstaking decision to replace Elias with an under-the-weather Samuel.

THE GAME

All week we could see that the boys were anxious about meeting Höllviken again. We knew that Höllvken would come out with energy and pressure and try and control the game. That is exactly what they did.

Neo cleanly won the opening faceoff, but we did not control it and they immediately pressured us in our own zone leading to a centering pass and a Höllviken goal within the first few seconds of the game. This only fed their confidence and reinforced our fears. Höllviken scored a couple more times in the opening 5 minutes. We become more tentative allowing them space and they relaxed and controlled every aspect of the game. Höllviken kept their pressure up, attacked and screened our goal and continued scoring with ease. It was difficult to watch but there are a few positives to take away from the game. Roses and thorns as I call it. There were lots of thorns this day, but we should not forget the roses we witnessed either.

  1. We talk about various aspects of mental toughness and one aspect is to not act out aggressively in anger. We got our butts handed to us, but I did not see any of our boys act out unnecessarily physical. No pushing or hacking with the stick. No swearing or threatening the other team. No talking down or criticizing their teammates either. I was very happy and proud about that.

 

  1. Neo stepped up in a difficult situation and led his team as team captain. It was not an easy task he was asked to do but when called upon he answered the call. We want to create a team full of leaders and we cannot achieve that without demonstrations of leadership. Neo definitely did that by putting in extra long shifts, staying positive and talking with his teammates on the bench.

 

  1. Pietro continued to fight and did his best to lead with his play. Pietro was extremely frustrated throughout the game. They recognized his skill and pointedly tried to neutralize him by not allowing him any space. He picked up 2 two-minute penalties but, I did not see that he acted out in an inappropriate way in response.

 

  1. With virtually no preparation Samuel took on the daunting role of goalkeeper when asked to fill in. We knew that it would not be an easy day in goal, and it was not. I knew that he was not going to be able to run due to illness and by him filling in it allowed us to have one more outfield player that we would have been without.

 

  1. During our team talk after the game the boys were understandably down but many were able to analyse where they lacked individually and how that led to us lacking as a team. Self-reflection and self-awareness.

 

The game ended with a resounding 15-0 result. As coaches we knew that going into this Spring series was going to challenge us unlike the Fall. Our hope is that it helps us to build positive character and a better understanding of how we need to improve. In order to help the boys develop at this level I have three basic steps to winning. 1) Win the ball, 2) Cooperation, 3) Individual development. We have not had much stated focus on the third step, but my hope is that this result will encourage the boys to understand the importance of this step.

Practice times as usual this week, but unfortunately, I am away on Tuesday so Christian and Jan will take over. On Thursday I am back where our A-laget mentor Måns Persson will join us.

Until then all the best,

Bob

 

 

Game Recap Engelholm 14/1
2024-01-19 18:12

Hi Everybody!

Last Sunday we played our first game in the newly formed Spring series (svår).

The way it works is in the Fall series teams in our level are divided into 3 groups or series (North, West, South) based on geography. After the Fall series is complete the federation mixes up the teams from the 3 series based on results and creates 3 new series (Difficult, Medium, Easy). We are in the Difficult series for the Spring.

Our first game was against North series runners-up FBC Engelholm P11. All week I could sense that the boys were about nervous about playing in the new tough series. In preparation for the game we had a lot of focus on positioning and tactics as well as team play and mental toughness.

We were initially one defender short of having three full lines so we recruited help from Joar who plays in another FBC team. Joar did a great job of adapting to our style of play and is natural leader in the locker room.

Unfortunately by the time game day arrived we had two more players out sick.  This meant that we only had two and a half lines and we were forced to modify our original game plan. All the boys adapted very well to this.
It was a very even game as the final score of 3-4 demonstrated.

The first period ended with a 0-2 advantage to Engelholm. Their first goal was a purely lucky goal and the second goal was a well played goal. We went into the break and talked to the boys about digging deep and using positivity to feed into their mental strength. The game was far from over as long as we continued to play our game. We made a few line adjustments and started the second period.

About 3 minutes into the second period Engelholm scored a third goal. The boys remained positive and kept fighting. About 5 minutes later we finally got on the board with a really nice team goal. About 4 minutes later we got a second and the period ended with the score 2-3 to Engelholm. Aside from their early goal we dominated the period.
In the break we re-emphasized our game plan, talked about what we were doing that was working and what we needed to do better. Our energy and morale was high going into the third period.

The third period was a tightly contested period. About 11 minutes into the period they scored again giving them a two goal advantage with about 4 minutes left to play. Roughly a minute after the restart we got one back. We had around two and a half minutes to find an equalizer. In that time we had a handful of really good chances but the Engelholm keeper kept us out.

It was a really fun game and I know (and I am happy that) the boys were a little disappointed with the result, but they played a really good, clean game! They maintained their focus both individually and as a team. I think this game also served to show them that they can compete in this new series.
I hope all the boys enjoyed the game as much as I did!

Our next game on Sunday is against Höllviken, the team that won our series in the Fall. We will be without a few players due to scheduling conflicts, but I am sure it too will be an exciting game.


A side note:
I think it is important for us as a team, both players and coaches, to that we keep our ambitions aligned. Yesterday we started practice by having a team discussion about; What we enjoy about playing floor ball? What we enjoy about playing on this team? & What our ambitions are as a team? I encourage you to talk to the boys about these things as well. As a group we came to the conclusion that we all like to win but enjoying ourselves is more important than winning every game. Everyone seems to like being part of the this team and that personally makes me very happy.
As a group we also agreed that we prefer when everyone is involved rather than only some.

I am looking forward to our next game on against Höllviken on Sunday!

Until then all the best,

Bob

Game Recap Stanstad 5/12 & Game Recap Bjärred 10/12.
2024-01-19 14:11

Hi Everybody!

It’s a long mail. Please read to the end 😉

It has been a fun and intense week of floor ball with 2 games in 5 days.

This week we played our final two games of the Fall series.

STANSTAD 5/12

On Tuesday we played a school-night game away at Stanstad. Stanstad has struggled this season and was hungry for a win. At the same time our boys were a little overconfident going into this one. Elias was still out sick meaning that Sune filled in as goalkeeper for the second game in a row. We were also without Mateo which left us without two trained attackers between Sune and Mateo.

Stanstad opened the scoring in the first minute leaving the boys a little shellshocked. We were having a difficult time organizing ourselves and smoothly substituting players. In an attempt to regroup and regain focus we took a timeout 8 minutes into the first period. One minute after the restart we scored and tied the game at 1-1. We were still a little unfocused and not playing our game as Stanstad was very aggressive in pressuring the ball and winning the ‘steg 1’ battle. The remainder of the period was a back-and-forth affair as Stanstad ended the period with 2-3 lead. Even though the scoreline was close we were leaving ourselves open in the back and not controlling the play in our offensive zone. We could also consider ourselves lucky to not have picked up a penalty from our substitutions.

At the break we adjusted our lines in an attempt to reassert ourselves by trying to create a more potent attacking lineup while securing our defense. Stanstad maintained their constant pressure and kept us at bay, and they eventually scored again 7 minutes into the second period. We continued fighting and were rewarded with 3 goals in three minutes and our first lead of the game. However, Stanstad also continued to fight and scored twice before the final break. The second period ended with a 5-6 lead to Stanstad.

Going into the third period we knew that we would have to dig deep in order to regain the lead. Early in the period we leveled the score. Sune made a handful of really good saves down the stretch and 5 minutes into the period we regained the lead. It was clear at this point that the match could really go to either team. The boys stayed positive and kept working. The last 5 minutes of the game felt like 15.

The boys hung on and claimed a tight 7-6 win! It was not our best performance but a good lesson of the importance of perseverance for the team going forward!

The match honours went to:

Sune – Most Blocked Shots – Sune took home the honor for the second game in a row as he once again stepped up and filled in between the sticks in Elias’s absence. He made some really good saves which really helped us keep this game in reach. He made a few great saves in the third period to help us secure our win!

Jonatan – Hardest Blocked Shot – Jonatan won this award with a nice, perfectly ball-shaped bruise on his knee. Levi was also a contender, but Jonatan’s bruise was a bit more swollen.

Pietro – Mr. Hustle – As Oscar took home this honor after our last match, we wanted to give him the responsibility to decide this games Mr. Hustle recipient. His motivation for his decision was that Pietro gave 110% throughout the game and never let off no matter how frustrated we were at times throughout the game. Pietro had good mental toughness and supported his team with his play and positivity.

Oscar – Game Ball – Oscar had a very good all-around game. He was solid on defense. He regularly pressured the ball carrier. He was taking and communicating on the court. He was focused throughout the game. He also made good runs forward on found himself in prime attacking positions several times throughout the game.

As a team it was not our best performance, but we managed to pull out a good result 😊.

 

BJÄRRED 10/12

Yesterday we played our final game of the Fall series away against Bjärred. The boys had a very positive approach to this game after the comeback win earlier in the week against Stanstad. We had a 10:00 match start and historically speaking we tend to really struggle with morning games. We were glad to have our starting goalkeeper Elias back from illness, but we were without 4 other players today: Sune, Viggo, Max and Mateo. Due to our reduced squad we decided to start the game with a type of player rotation that we had not tried before. As long as everyone remained focused, we were confident the boys would be able to understand the new substitution system. Everyone responded very well, and we were able to use the new substitution system the entire game. 😊

It took about 1 minute for Bjärred to open the scoring. About a minute later we tied the game. The first period finished 1-1, but we were very pleased with our play. Our substitutions were working, we were pressuring the ball and on offense we were unlucky not to find the back of the net on a few occasions.

It took us about 10 minutes into the second period to score and take the lead only for Bjärred to tie things up again about 40 seconds later. A few really good saves from Elias kept Bjärred from taking a multi-goal lead. We also had some really good sequences of play where we combined ‘steg 1’ and ‘steg 2’ only to be denied by Bjärred’s shot stopper. Even though the second period ended with a 2-2 scoreline, we were very happy with how the boys were playing and performing so we decided to continue with the initial game-plan to the end of the game.

We tried to impress upon the boys that if we played our game, kept focused on defense and won the final period then we would win the game. The boys all seemed focused and eager to get on with it. About 4 minutes into the third period, we broke the deadlock and once again regained the lead. However, about 4 minutes later, Bjärred scored and once again tied the game. We encouraged the boys to keep focus and continue working. About 90 seconds later we scored and regained the lead. Three minutes later we scored and for the first time in the game had a two-goal advantage. The final three and a half minutes was very tense but boys remained focused and held on and claimed victory for the day!

It was an all-around good team performance, and I am so proud and happy for the boys!

The match honours went to:

Elias – Most Blocked Shots – Elias did a really good job coming back from illness and made some keys saves throughout the game. During an intense second period he kept them out and never allowed Bjärred to take the lead even though they had a handful of good chances.

Jonatan – Hardest Blocked Shot – For the second game in a row! Not only did Jonatan play a very good all-around game, but he had the bruises to show for his tremendous defensive play as well. One block even caused him to need an early substitution. Ouch!

Knut – Mr. Hustle – Knut was on point all game and gave 110% in every shift. He was after the ball constantly and frustrated Bjärred’s players repeatedly by pressuring the ball and cutting off passes. He got back on defense and constantly covered gaps the entire game.

Carl – Game Ball – Carl had a terrific game! He did a good job with substitutions. He was after the ball throughout the game (steg 1). On offense he got his head up and found his teammates leading to two assists. He embodied everything we have been working on all season both individually and as a team.

Good jobs guys!

Practice next week as usual.

 

I hope to see all the boys at practice on Tuesday!

 

All the best,

 

Bob

Game Recap Lomma 25/11
2024-01-19 14:09

Hi Everybody!

Yesterday we played our fifth game of the season against Lomma. Our practice preparation for this game focused heavily on the floor ball fundamentals of shooting and passing. 
We were confident that this was a game we could be successful in if we used the tools we have been working on in practice.

The evening before the game we had a handful players fall ill meaning that we had to reorganise how we lined up for this game and that it would be an extra tough game for our boys as they would need to play more minutes than they are used to. The biggest change was that our goalkeeper Elias was not able to participate, but Sune was willing to fill in for our missing shot stopper. With hardly any practice under his belt Sune took on the task and did well to keep alert and focused making a handful of really good saves!

We reorganised our lines and adapted our game plan to the reduced lineup we had. The boys all responded well to the last minute changes. Our player substitutions were seamless throughout the entire game. On the court we defended and attacked exactly as we have been practicing. Our defenders pressured the ball carrier and covered the middle and our Centers reinforced our defensive positions where needed. 
We were able to pin Lomma back in their own zone most of the game by using our fore-checking strategy. After winning the ball the boys were passing to each other with 1-2s and give and go plays just as we have been working on.

The game finished with a 3-6 win to us! We created many scoring opportunities and kept our focus both individually and collectively throughout the entire game. It was a good demonstration of mental strength from all the boys!

After the game we handed out a few awards.

The honours went to:

Levi - Hardest Blocked Shot - Even though Levi lined up as an attacker he worked hard to get back on defence and he took home this honour by producing a perfectly ball shaped bruise just above his knee. Ouch

Sune - Most Blocked Shots - Sune stepped up and filled in for our missing keeper and did a really good job of maintaining focus, remaining calm with the ball and made some really nice saves that helped us keep the game under control.

Oscar - Mr. Hustle - Oscar did a great job keeping pressure on the ball. He never gave up on plays and recovered in situations that could have led to easy scoring opportunities for our opponents. Also, he made some really good runs forward and found himself in great offensive situations on several occasions!

Neo - Game Ball - Not only did Neo play a great game from Center on line 2, he also took on the role as Team Captain. I think he won every face-off he took, he was a key figure both offensively and defensively whenever he was on the court and he led warmups and helped keep his teammates focused on the game at hand. Well done!

It should also be noted that Pietro scored a double hat-trick yesterday!!! Quite a feat!

I hope the boys all enjoyed it as much as I did!

Normal practice schedule next week, but I am away so Christian will take over head duties.

Reminder, our next game against Stanstad has been moved from next Saturday to the following Tuesday 5/12.

I hope all the boys are healthy and are at practice next week.

All the best,

Bob
