Two of the Grand girls play Ice Hockey. Savannah is a Senior this year and Paige is a Freshman. They are both on the Varsity team.
Last night was their first game.
Savannah and Paige in the players box.
Paige on the ice, she got some ice time or “reps” …you can tell I do not know the finer points of Hockey. I watch for the girls to jump out of the players box and then I see what kind of photos I can get.
Paige and the puck. Paige is a really good player, she was younger when she started playing…I think she was in first or second grade when she began playing. She had some real good coaches who taught her the hockey skills she needed for a really good foundation in girls hockey.
Savannah on the right and another teammate.
Savannah is a very aggressive player. Can you see the puck in between the hockey sticks on top of that yellow board? She got a little ice time..not much. She was primed and ready to play. She was discouraged. We encouraged her, the season has just begun. They lost their first game 4-0. Kinda a bummer for them all.
It was snowy when we left home, the snow was melting and then sticking to the roads, by the time we made it to Bemidji several inches of snow had accumulated and the roads were slick. It was a slow trip there and a slow trip back home, we saw one car in the ditch…not bad for as slippery as it was.
It was good to watch the girls play. We stayed to visit with them after the game. It is always nice to get those hugs:)
