Game 8

    Earlier this week Drew came out of practice to inform me that he would be starting the starting goalie for the game on Friday. I was a bit surprised, as he had only played in goal once before it was obvious that it wasn't his strong suit. Nonetheless, he was very excited about his opportunity in net, though it made both Tara and I extremely nervous. The nerves only got worse once the big day arrived and Drew was standing on the ice in his goalie gear. Once the game got underway and he had a few saves under his belt we all began to settle down just a little bit. He wound up allowing 6 goals on the night, which isn't bad considering that they have allowed more than 10 goals 5 times already this season. Not to mention this team beat the Saginaw Badgers team that has won their previous contests against us by a combined score of 53-1. Drew's biggest struggles came on the shots the came in fast along the ice. He did a good job of stopping the high shots, but he didn't find himself going down to the ice quick enough to stop the low ones. All in all it was a good game, and Drew had fun taking his turn in net. Here's hoping that this isn't a regular occurrence, though!
