"TIME OUT!"  The girls played their hearts out this weekend, and it's a very encouraging sign that their self-confidence lasted through eight of the weekend's nine periods of very challenging hockey.  Special thanks to Coach Moran for making all those sandwiches and to our bus parents for the Munchkins, etc.  Thanks to the parents who helped make the bus trip feasible by paying for the empty seats and to the parents who made such special efforts to get our youngest teammates to the games between other commitments.  Three L's don't begin to tell the story of this weekend.  It was a great team effort.
