A Step In The Right Direction - Oct 28, 2012

Hello World,

I am doing great as usual, except the snow is finally here. One morning, I woke up to go to shoot around practice and it was nice weather. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. After our morning shoot around, I then came back to my apartment to take a little nap before are game, and when I woke up, I looked out the window and it was snowing. I said to myself, "Here we go, it is here". Straight away I went to my closet and pulled out the big jacket, gloves, hat, and winter boots. Although it snows pretty bad here as people told me, I am from upstate New York, we get a lot of snow all the time and I am more than prepared. Other than the snow, This week was a successful week for my team, Lappeeranta Namika . We took a great step into the right direction. We only had one game this week, which was Friday night against Namika Lahti, so we had a full week of preparation to get ready for the game. Each day, we all worked hard to fix the things that we needed to get better at as a team and individually. Friday's night game showed of what we improved on and we ended up with another victory, which puts us at 4-2. We defended well and offensively, we did well. I think that if we continue to improve our defense and defend like we did this past Friday, we can compete with any team and give them a good run. Offense will take care of its self, its the defense that will win the games. We definitely took a big step into the right direction and we will continue to feed of this positive energy and get ready to get back to work tomorrow to compete against our upcoming opponents this week.
