The boys JV hockey team traveled to Westfield High on Friday to scrimmage the Westfield High varsity team. After just 3 days of practice Coaches Howe and Lyons were eager to see how the players would do against a perennially strong Westfield High team. After classes on Friday all 23 members of the young roster boarded the Deerfield bus ready to play in their first contest of the year.
We rolled 4 lines and skated 7 defensemen and each goalie played a period tonight. All in all we saw great effort from everyone. Alex Leong returned to the team after a year hiatus and showed great determination throughout the first period in the net. On the scoreboard we fell behind 3-6 but we learned a lot from the outing and look forward to a good opening week of the season starting Monday.
