Round of 16
Comets 0- Morris Knolls 6
Well, there is not much to say. Our kids did all they could. They knew going into the game it was going to be a tough one. It was a very emotional night for both the parents and the kids.
About the game ... well Morris Knolls is a very good team. They moved the puck with precision. No player held onto the puck for more than a second or two before a precise pass was made. They cycled like crazy. The Comets did all the could to keep up with them but it just wasn't enough.
The Comets did improve as the game went on, they even started to put some serious pressure on MK mid way through the second period. But a couple of tip in goals and it was a 0-5 game. MK managed to put one more in during the 3rd to make the final score 0-6.
It was a tough night, that I think left a lot of fans thinking "what if ..." But all that aside, we are all very proud of our kids. Especially the seniors, who, in their 4 years with the team, had help the team reach some accomplishments that had never been done before. They (and their parents) will truly be missed. We wish them all the best as they start looking towards their lives after high school!
As a side note, even though there are 8 players leaving, it in no way means it's time to throw the arms up in the air and give up. There is still a lot of heart on this team, especially with some of the younger players. This team has some very large shoes to fill, and they will all have to step up to the task to show that the heart of this team is still beating!
