Coach's Blog This WeekWell the season has gotten underway in earnest. We have played 2 league games to this point and are preparing for another bus trip up the NJ Turnpike to visit Seton Hall. We played a tight game versus Southeast Regional qualifier UMBC but fell just short in the end. We played against William Patterson, another regional qualifier, and the game was tight coming down to us hitting a post late in the third. WPU held on to the game and we lost 5-4. Two losses to two top tier opponents, both closely matched. These games are good barometer to measure ourselves. They are also excellent lesson teachers. We fell into some PK trouble and we’ll adjust the coverage to improve. We also met Seton Hall in the season opener and in traditional Rowan Ice Hockey fashion defense was rare. The final was 10-6 in our favor.
Saturday October 4th we met with some men with whom we shared some common ground. These men all played ice hockey for the school as well. They played in the 1980s when the school was called Glassboro State. The event was about everything except the game. The entire day was spectacular with both the current team and the alumni thoroughly enjoying the time together. Their retro GSC jersey was replica of the 1931 Boston Bruins and they were beauties. The game was played with a lot of fun and ease that included nice goals and even a penalty shot. All thanks goes out to the Alumni for a great weekend of activities.

See you on the pond.
