It was a close game and hard fought for on both sides. Reno Pond Hockey made some mistakes and stopped skating in the third period. We had poor passing all game. We weren’t taking shifts right. We were taking bad changes. We were taking long shifts. We just weren’t playing as well as we had in our last two games. There were a lot of plays where guys were just standing around and not in the play. I was really upset with my performance at the end of the game. I was out of position a lot. I gave up control of the puck leading to the 4th Remo Sriracha goal. At this point there is no time to dwell on this loss as we have a game coming up Monday.
