First game!

After a few weeks of practice, last night was Green Team #2’s* first ever game!!

* Yes, we need a real name. Patience.

I was pretty nervous beforehand, but was excited by the time Peter and I arrived at Belmont, especially when I saw that Tony had come by after work to watch. Yay!

My team was playing Kim’s team, so Kim and I had a mock battle pre-game:

In the end, Kim’s battle-fu was stronger, as my team lost, 0-2…though not for lack of trying, as we had 29 shots on goal during the game. šŸ™‚

I wasn’t heartbroken about our loss, though, because I really had a great time. I clearly need to work on receiving passes in specific and puck handling in general, but I felt like my skating abilities were on-par with the team and I had a decent beginner’s sense of positioning.

Here’s us making one of those attempts on goal (I’m the middle green player):

For those interested, here are the rest of the photos.

Next game: Sunday, 4/23, 6pm @ Belmont. Woohoo!

    I think it was all Jennie and Cree’s battle-fu (plus Nora’s amazing unplanned goal-tending).

    You were awesome. I’m sure by the end of the season you are going to be romping all over the rest of us. I’m glad we’re on the same team. (Sorry we booted you guys off the ice too soon that one time.)

    Your team needs a name. How about The Green Poofs? Or The Evil Robots? Or just Battle Fu?
