Head coach Eric Hohn said even though the team won both its games this weekend, it still has a lot to work on.
“We hung in there,”
“We were down in both games at one point and we kept our heads and we stayed with the game and played through.”
Hohn said after this weekend he made some changes in the lineup to improve the way the team skates together.
“We made some changes and we’re going to give it a shot,” Hohn said.
“We’re still playing around with lines and we’ve got some time before state to make improvements. We need to work on our passing because it still isn’t there. We’ve just got to work harder in practice.”
