“Obviously he’s been a bright spot for us all year,” Yameen said of his goaltender. “You can’t ask any more from him. It’s the guys in front of him that really need to stay consistent and stay hard for three whole periods.”
With last night’s loss, Matignon now finds its tournament hopes dashed.
“It’s a really tough pill to swallow, but we’re going to try our best to rebound on Thursday,” said Matignon coach Gus Means. “I actually thought we outplayed them in the first period. But they hung tough and then in the second period, they took advantage of a couple of our mistakes and got the momentum. They owned us from that point on.”
