BEDFORD, MA – After beginning the season with three straight losses, the East Coast Wizards turned things around with three straight wins, which was good for a record of 3-3-0 in the month of September. While the up and down start was rather frustrating at the time, Freddy Meyer believes his team learned from how hard they had to work in order to earn that first victory.
“I think because it took us as long as we did, it made the guys work just that much harder," said EHL head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "Of course, we would have loved to finish September with a perfect 6-0-0 record, but Kory [Falite] and I truly see value in the games that we lost. Our team learned quickly, just how important it is to play for all 60 minutes in this league.”
Looking back on the games that took place, and you’ll see that two of the defeats were by a single goal. Therefore, the team and its core group of leaders, knew what they had to do in order to get on the other side of these tight contests.
Coming up in October, the Wizards will hit the ice for 10 total games, four of which will be taking place in the friendly confines of The Edge Sports Center.
“This will be a good test for us,” added Meyer. “None of the matchups are easy, and we get a chance to take our first overnight trip as a team down to Philadelphia. I’m looking forward to seeing how this group grows closer over the next month.”
Outside of the Columbus Day Showcase (October 13th and 14th), the other key dates to circle on the calendar this month are the 24th through the 26th, as Team EHL gets set to take on Fitchburg State, Salem State, and UMass Boston.
