Storm at the half way point

Yes it's already half way through the season. Well this young team is starting to come together and playing some good wide open hockey - just what I like to see. We don't get pushed around and we never give up.

The team record is just 3-5-2 but they have only lost once in the past five games and the lopsided losses seem to be a thing of the past. In 10 games the team has scored 16 and given up 23 but 10 of those goals given up were in just 2 games. Over the remaining 8 games were have actually scored more goals (15) than have had scored against us (13). Although the team sits in 7th place, it has 3 or 4 games in hand on most of the teams in front of it so the remaining 3 games this week will largely determine how high they will finish. Third or fourth is not out of the question.

Leading in points including league, tournament and exhibition games is Gabby with 13 and she also leads the team in goals scored with 11. Alexa leads the team in assists with 5. Caitlin has been in the penalty box for 18 minutes which is tops on the Storm. There are 6 skaters that have played in all 22 exhibition, league and tournament games - Madeleine A, Madeleine L, Caitlin, Amanda, Alexa and Gabby.
