Thanksgiving/ Hello Wisconsin

Well it is nice to have a little break this week from the GRIND.

- First off we split this past weekend against St. Norbert JV in DePere, WI. St. Norbert has a storied history of success at the D 3 level and we have always had good games against them at the JV level. They are a hardworking team and are well coached. That was what they were the past weekend. On Friday night we were down 2-0 before we started to go. Too much puck watching and we just didn't have the "Jam" on Friday. After we settled down a bit we just could not find the back of the net. The goalie played well and we lost too many battles and could not finish.  Saturday was a different story and we played a lot better, especially in the first period. It was the Lucas Walsh show and he had 4 goals in the first period. We settled in and won 6-2 in a strange game where we did not have a power play opportunity and had two 5 minute majors called on us. The boys hung in there and got the job done.  Overall it was a good weekend as we did some team bonding at Lambeau Field.  The break comes at a good time and i hope everyone enjoys the time and gives thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Play Offs

Well the dream is over and we will not have a chance to represent DCB at the National Tournament in New York. We lost 2-0 to WSC in a best of three series. Sunday night was tough as two minutes in we were down 2-0 on two bad bounces in consecutive shifts. We made it 3-1 after one but then we just could not get any offence produced. I am happy that we left it all on the ice and worked hard. This team deserved better but in the end what hurt us all year was lack of offense and we just needed more goals. I am proud of this team and proud of the effort. We have one game left at Minot State on Friday. LONG LIVE THOSE LUMBERJACKS!

Feb 2 - Groundhog Day

Well the weekend did not go good for the hockey Jacks. We lost 3-2 and 4-1 to a very good Finlandia JV team. We put up over 45 shots each day but could not beat there goalies. We played hard but need to pick it up a level. I also thought we had many players who could have played better and more consistent all weekend but that is what you are going to get from kids at this age. We are going to get the work boots on this week and get ready for the biggest games of the year.

We have Williston State coming up for our playoffs. Should be fun. We are going to work hard and give it all we have and see where it takes us. Come out to the Lumberdome next Sunday night.

Long Live Those Lumberjacks!!

January 26 - Happy Birthday Wayne Gretzky

Weekend Update:
The Jacks lost a pair to the St. Johns JV on the weekend. Friday night we started well and had a 2-1 lead. Unfortunately we gave up 3 goals in the last 10 mins of the game including 2 breakaways and lost 6-2. On Saturday we lost 5-2 but our downfall was we gave up a goal in the 1st minute of the 2nd and 3rd periods and an early one in the first. We played hard all weekend and the fact that more than 6 varsity guys played in each game we did ok. The Johnnies were a fast team and really buried there chances. Ryan Miner had a good weekend for us in the nets.

We were fortunate enough to have former NHL and Team Canada coach Andy Murray of the Western Michigan Broncos talk to the boys this weekend. He had a great message and Thank You Coach Murray  for all you do for the game of hockey and for being a good friend to Lumberjack Hockey.

Long Live Those Lumberjacks!!

Monday January 19

Greetings. We are coming off a busy week where we lost a pair of games to WSC 6-1 and we defeated NDSU twice to go 2-2 on the week.

WSC Games > Well we started off well playing against the Tetons and then we stopped moving our feet and they capitalized on some of our mistakes. We did not make that big play or get that big save when we needed it and then we lost some momentum when we took a few too many penalties. In Williston it was the same as the night before. We did get into a good groove in the second period and then gave up a back breaker goal with 10 seconds left in the period. We also need to do better on our PP and work harder.

NDSU Games> The guys played really well all weekend and I feel they are sick and tired of losing and they now are buying into what the coaches are trying to teach them. Everyone contributed in the wins and i am hoping this can continue into next weekend as we head to St. Johns (MN).

It was good to see some ex Lumberjacks at the games.

Long Live Those Lumberjacks!!
