It was a good scenario for us to be put in. With 3 tough games left in the regular season we have a few Duluth teams ahead of us in the section. We now know what to expect in terms of physical and tactical play. It was a pretty aggressive game with a two man referee system, but we knew going into it that Duluth is known for physicality so we stayed strong. They had a couple of key players that we tried to shutdown and we did a lot better second half after we were already down 0-3. We had a poor first half which resulted in a lot of transitions that were unneeded. We did have a couple of really good scoring opportunities, just couldn’t put them away. This was our first game we weren’t able to score in. Denfeld had a solid squad with 13 seniors and their passing was well above average so it was nice to see we still were able to create opportunities.
