After a successful win against St. Paul’s Two Rivers, head coach Ryan St. Martin said he was proud of how the team performed during their last game of the season Feb. 3. 

“The game went very well,” St. Martin said. “The girls had a great effort throughout the entire game and we were able to grind out a victory. We did a really good job creating some chances low in the offensive zone, and the win was a great way to end the season.”

According to junior Camryn Witham, the reason the team played so effectively was because of its teamwork and communication.

“We played all three periods well and we were working really well as a team,” Witham said. “We all kept the energy up on the bench, and even had a couple of line changes which we acclimated well to.”

Senior Zoe Wyatt said despite the win, there were still aspects of the game that could have gone better.

“There were definitely some moments where we could’ve played better,” Wyatt said. “We should have been anticipating their shots more often. If we lacked anything, it was our mental game, and staying focused.”

According to Witham, she wants to work on creating opportunities when it comes to passing and making shots.

“I struggled with passing today, and creating opportunities – keeping my head up and staying open,” Witham said. “Overall, I played well, but that was something I struggled with.”

St. Martin said with sections approaching, the team needs to spend more time practicing their consistency and focus.

“For sections, we’re looking for consistency throughout the game,” St. Martin said. “When the girls focus too much on only winning or beating their opponents, it’s easy to get distracted, so we need to just worry about playing our best instead of who we are playing against.”

Girls’ Hockey is setting up to play at sections Feb. 11. The time and location are still to be determined.
