Get prepared

The last thing a team needs is to go 0-2 on the road.

The Bearcats avoided that. They can live with a split.

Truro had a good start in Woodstock; however, mistakes, small and large, proved very costly. Glaring ones were more damaging.

At one point, the Bearcats were down six goals. They did fight back to come within two, but it was too late.

When down that much, teams are more worried about being embarrassed than losing.

On the road, in particular, a team has to be strong from the goal out. Truro clearly was not.

The Slammers have a few snipers, but they’re not that accurate. It was a Foster Hewitt night – He shoots! He scores!

The Bearcats recovered enough to pull off its win in St. Stephen the following night. They found a way to win this one.

The game was decided in the last ten minutes. The Bearcats broke the tie with a pair to clinch the verdict.

For sure it was an interesting weekend. The team gave up too many (11goals) but they did manage to score (10 goals). They also played the County Aces’ game without a penalty.

This Friday, the Bearcats are Amherst for a 2:00 pm. The Remembrance Day encounter seems to be a regular event.

Coming into this week, only two points separate the Bearcats and Ramblers. They always play strong at home and, like Truro, are scratching for points.

A number of Bearcats have made the news. Congratulations are due team Captain, Kyle Tibbo for being named the MHL’s Second Star for the Month of October (9 goals, 6 assists in 9 games played).

Three Bearcats will participate in next week’s Eastern Canada Cup All – Star Challenge in Cornwall, Ontario. Jason Rioux (G), Riley Baggs (D) and Brandon Hughes (F) are to be congratulated for being selected.
