After a 0-6 loss for Park, head coach Ryan St. Martin said that despite the tough game, the team did a good job with technique.

“They did a really nice job on the penalty kills today,” St. Martin said. “They did a good job keeping the structure and getting clears when the opportunities were there.”

Junior Camryn Witham said that she struggled with making decisions on the spot and didn’t play as cleverly as she usually does.

“Today, I could have played a little bit smarter,” Witham said. “Making decisions on the spot was difficult and I didn’t do as well as I could have.”

St. Martin said that although the game ultimately ended in loss, the team still managed to recover after the first period.

“We could’ve come out with a little bit more jump in the first period, but I’m happy with their recovery in the second and third periods,” St. Martin said.

Witham said that she tried to stay engaged throughout the game by supporting her teammates.

“I was a good teammate today,” Witham said. “I hyped my teammates up as well as I could and tried to keep a positive energy.”

Sophomore Rowan Jansen said that the team mainly struggled with staying energetic throughout all three periods but started out strong.

“We’re good at starting out and going as hard as we can go,” Jansen said. “Today, we struggled with carrying that energy through the rest of the game.”

Park’s next game is Nov. 22 against Waconia at Waconia Ice Arena.
