The Knights varsity ice hockey team had a game on Friday Nov. 16 at against the Timberland Wolves. The Knights lost the game 5-1.

“We had an upper body injury tonight on Brett Wells, and we don’t know how long he’ll be out, and that was really tough.” head coach Ryan Gannon said. “They were a rough team, and I don’t think we necessarily responded quite well, I wish we would have initiated the charge more, along with the grinder style of hockey, and should’ve maintained our puck possession better. That’s what we need to improve on going forward.”

Despite the loss the team showed a lot improvement during the game and throughout the season and has high hopes for all the upcoming games.

“Almost all the players, if not for sure all of them have definitely gotten better since the beginning of the season playing through practices with them, we’re working well as a team, and I look forward to seeing us improving all together.” Captain Drake Johnston said.

The Knights played a strong defense in the first period not allowing a single goal, but struggled on offense throughout the whole game and only scored one goal. The 2 best players on the team for the Knights were Johnston and Senior Sam Kenton.

“Sam Kenton had a great game for us, he kind of played defense and forward for us. We had an injury tonight so he had to drop back, he’s a very versatile player for us and we like that he’s willing to take a position at any times, when he gets the puck he moves it well and he’s always going well.” Gannon said. “I also think Drake Johnston our only goal scorer played a phenomenal game. He plays defense, but he led the rush with a lot of plays tonight too, and he was very sound positionly on the ice.”
