This weekend was our first hockey tournament. All four squirt teams played three games each, followed by a pizza party, then an AHL game (Binghamton Senators vs Hershey Bears).
While Brett's team didn't win any, they did tie one, and have shown great improvement over their first few games of the season.
The other first came in the third game. Before he went out on the ice for the final game, his father reminded him that when his teammates were shooting, he needed to charge the net to get the rebound. (He was playing left wing yesterday.) So, when his teammate shot, Brett charged the net, and when the goalie dropped the puck, he dove and reached out with his stick, poking it into the net. First goal of the season!
We thought he might get a second goal when he took off on a breakaway, but even though he lifted the puck, the goalie shifted at the last second and stopped it.
So, how was your weekend?
