“This was overall a great performance from our players. We started really strong, which resulted with 2 quick goals, though we should have scored at least 2 more in the first 15 minutes of play. After we scored an unfortunate own goal, we lost our focus a bit as nerves creeped in. I am glad we got over that as a group and for rest of the game we controlled the pace of play and we were able to score 3 more goals.  I really liked our defensive shape, as we worked on it quite a lot in practice. That work paid off as we prevented our opponent from scoring during their power play (we have one less player for 2 min) on two separate occasions. I am very satisfied with the amount of chances we are creating at this point in our development, though we must to be more clinical finishing these chances when they arrive. Once we start converting them more regularly, we will start to see lots of positive results…  Congratulation to all players on very important first WIN!”
