odin’s team played two games today and lost both games. they lost the first game against onalaska, 4-5 ( could have won on a different day ) and the second game against tomah, 0-10 ( holy cow, what a formidable team! ).
i captured it all on video so coach will have plenty of teachable moments to review with the kids
we walked with odin and some hockey buddies in a local parade to raise awareness for the hockey association. even though i’m losing count of how many parades i’ve walked over the past couple of years, i don’t mind since it’s all for a good cause.
because i know a guy in marketing at organic valley, we had some organic fuel to hand out along with flyers and association swag. it’s always fun to hear an ever increasing number of people proactively yell out how much they love it.
whoohoo! odin’s team beat appleton 7-0 to take third place trophy in the waupaca super squirt tournament! so proud of the whole team for playing their best and bringing home another trophy!
the team hoists the trophy.
odin accepts his medal.
odin’s team lost their first game against a milwaukee area team, but won the second against a team I can’t remember the name of! it was one of the best games i’ve seen them play in part because they game back from being down 6-4 to winning 7-10.
tomorrow they’ll play against appleton for 3rd place trophy!
I’m broadening my role beyond youth hockey sports journalist to game videographer so they can review in practice.
another photo and article published in the local paper!
odin’s hockey team has best record in their league and now they’re headed to state championships after beating sparta 7-2 in “playdowns”. here’s a nice shot of one of the viroqua thunder players, after receiving well placed pass from the player in the background, getting the puck past two defenders to score a goal. in the photo, the puck is juuuuuust getting up and over the goalie’s stick.
that’s odin standing in the top left corner playing defense
