According to junior Abby Meyer, the Hopkins/Park girls’ hockey team did not compete well against Benilde St. Margaret’s. 

“I don’t think it was one of our best games. I feel like we came into (the game) a little nervous and scared because we heard of Benilde’s reputation,” Meyer said. 

Sophomore Greta Betzer said the game wasn’t the teams best, but overall it was still enjoyable.

“The game was rough, Benilde is a really good team and we weren’t really prepared, but it was really fun playing with our team,” Betzer said.

Coach Ryan St. Martin said the game was rough and he wants to improve on something with the team.

“I think we had a good first period, and we started having a tough third period, but it was positive seeing some reseliancy,” St. Martin said. “We gotta become more of a collective team and support each other.”

Meyer said that playing Benilde early in the season made it more difficult to succeed. 

“I felt like it was really early in the season to be playing Benilde, especially because they were really good this year. Overall I think we were as prepared as we could get,” Meyer said. 

St. Martin said he is looking forward to the girls upcoming games and what the future holds for the team. 

“I think it’s been a good season so far, we’re one game under 500 so we’re excited to see what December brings,” St. Martin said.

The next game will take place against Rogers at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 at Minnetonka Ice Arena according to
