Prem C (II) - Coach's Update
Jul. 31, 2012
The fight is on for a finals birth in Division 2 with the bottom 4 teams very close together on the ladder. It has proven to be a season where each team is able to challenge for a win no matter their previous performances, and even the best teams in the division can fall.
We have struggled back from a slow start, and are now finding our feet as a defensive unit. The offence is now starting to find it's mark and after our recent victory over the previously unbeaten Saints, we have shown that we are in this with a fighting chance.
After multiple games as a standout, most of our success is due to James McKendrick in net. Without his solid play between the pipes, and leadership abilities, we would be in big trouble this year. Also our courageous captain Paul Malia AKA "Meatball" is leading the way with unconventional warm up music and an infectious desire to win.
Many of our players have moved from forward to defence and back again, to help fill holes when asked. I have been very impressed with the efforts shown by all players, and each have played their hardest each game.
We have proven to ourselves that we can be competitive at this level, and with a few more wins under our belt I'm sure we can contend for the championship this year. It is not going to be easy, but nothing worth doing is.
