Great Jr Prep School Showdown at Govs

This was a tremendous contest between our guys and a strong Eaglebrook team. It was back and forth throughout the game, though we never had an advantage in goals, we were right in it and answered the call in big situations. Our guys demonstrated great resilience after some setbacks and stepped up to make this one a very competitive contest. Down 6-2 early in the second period, the boys made some further adjustments and stayed together as a cohesive unit. Our guys fought to the final whistle, and even gave us a chance to tie the game in the final 30 seconds. We cleared very well againt a tough Eaglebrook ride, our defense settled in after some early lapses and began denying the Eaglebrook offense from taking top side - which was a huge adjustment that demonstrated a commitment from each of our players. Ryan made some big saves in net, Jake and Rory fought hard to give us great opportunities from the face-off, and we had an impressive 12 goals out of the Moore brothers (Gabe - 9gs, Ethan - 3gs and 3as). Though our goals all came from the twins, our offense aided them by drawing the defense and keeping their team guessing. Eaglebrook played a primarily man-to-man defense but would convert to a 3 - 3 zone. We look forward to building off of this great contest and both teams will look forward to this annual battle.
