Girls' hockey falls to Braintree

The Newtonite

Girls’ hockey, 0-2, continued its season Wednesday with a 3-1 loss at Braintree.
“It was a frustrating game,” said coach Bob MacDougall. “We did a lot well, but we just couldn’t put the puck past their goalie.”
According to MacDougall, it is not too late for the Tigers to turn around and become successful. “We need to improve our offensive game and find opportunities. We’re finding offensive chances. We just need to cash in on those chances.”
While the team lost Wednesday’s game,  MacDougall said he feels the team played well. “Freshman Jordan Monbouquette had a good game. She was great in all three zones: offense, defense and in transitions,” he said. “Sophomore Caitlin O’Hanley had a good game defensively, and junior Hannah Gallogly also had a good game.”
With promising talent from freshmen and continued success from experienced older players, MacDougall said he is optimistic about the Tigers having a great season.
The Tigers will visit Milton tomorrow.
