day 1802 – drink the pink


its an activities overload kind of day and there wasn’t much of a meal at all. lunch was banana pancakes, pregame was banana pancakes, between games was snack wrap and post game was e-noodle and ice cream. my legs gave were long dead my jdp game was over but still must play my heart out for civil war. i ended up scoring the prettiest goal of my life – stole the puck off a forecheck and deked out the goalie to roof it. too bad there was no go pro present to record the epic goal. there’s still so much i need to clean up in my game, but i’m happy i played my heart out today and make a statement. it’s extra sweet for all the criticism i took last week

day 1493 – conquered war


game three of civil war playoffs settled everything tonight and my jade rabbits prevailed. my team took home the cup and i scored a beauty driving to the net to roof is short side. a goal that i am proud of because i did everything right with no hesitation. i played one of my better games but not the best because i had a glorious one timer that was robbed and missed on a tap in. my legs were feeling so sore and giving in; i find myself one step slower than my norm. i certainly enjoyed a fun summer drop in season where i started on the so called noob line, but realistically i can hang in and confidently play with the second liners. i’m excited and ready to rock for the upcoming winter season

day 1473 – game development

a steady development in my game lately as a result of playing with the higher tiers, receiving pointers, and just getting more ice time. a good day of hockey for me that started off well in britannia, but drop in is where it clicked; even with my aching body and tired legs, i felt strong on my skates. i thought i played a solid game gaining more confidence on the ice whether carrying the puck, driving to the net and playing good positioning. it’s nice when the opposing players compliment on your game, especially the goalie on my shot. it makes me smile a little he said i have a dangerous shot cause both speed and accuracy is there. i hate it when opposing guys take my lightly just because i’m a girl, but the fact they check me harder is a sign of gaining respect

day 1197 – first career goal

i’m officially on the stat sheet with my first career goal and seven games into the season. the goal was hugely satisfying as i roofed it over the goalie; he probably underestimated my ability to lift the puck off the ice. i had a strong game with good chances which earned me player of the game. the referee was quick to give me the game played puck and i didn’t waste any time in labelling it. it was a busy and productive running around town; i need more days like this and i need to remind myself to keep my spirit high
