Drew's Lapeer Storm teammates kicked off their Motown
Cup experience today, facing off against the Butler Valley Dawgs out
of Valencia, Pennsylvania. The two teams looked extremely evenly
matched early in the game, as they traded chances throughout the
first period, which ended in a 0-0 tie. The way these two went back
and forth on the ice it was only a matter a time before one of them
caught a break and opened the scoring, and today that was the Dawgs.
They managed to get one past the Storm goalie part way through the
second period, and, as luck would have it, that would be the only
goal that they would need to secure a victory.
Despite the loss, the close game gave the players hope and
confidence that they would be able to turn this into a successful
weekend with a couple of good games tomorrow. Here's hoping
that turns out to be true. Go Storm!
