Proud of the boys...

While we didn't get the result we wanted against Carleton on Wednesday, I'm proud of the way we played. We executed our game plan extremely well but gave one up on a set piece. That being said, those who were in attendance would agree that we had our chances on more than one occasion to tie that game - or to take the lead before Carleton's goal.

It was one of those games where nothing seemed to go our way in the attacking third. The quality of the final pass wasn't there when we needed it to be; every save was parried 2 inches too far from our players trying to capitalize on rebounds; and crosses were just short or long of our runs into the box.

We competed hard, and this team continues to improve day-by-day, and game-by-game. There is no time to dwell on the loss. We need to bounce back versus RMC on Saturday to continue our quest for a first-round bye.

Come support your Gaels as they take on the Paladins on Saturday at 3:15 at RMC. We're very appreciative of the support we've received thus far, and hope it continues for the remainder of the season.
