U17 This week-end
Saturday 21st Lux-Strasbourg 2 - 4
After a strong effort from Huskies U17 team, we had a narrow loss agains Strassbourg 4-2.
We started the game great with 2 solid goals, but got confortable and our opponents punished us with 2 quick goals. After first period game was even 2-2.
Second period result was 0 - 0 with even changes to both teams.
Huskies was the stronger team in the third period, but very unluckly with the finish. In total we held the pressure, but as often happens Strassbourg was able to score from far fewer real goal chances. Last Strassbourg goal was in empty net as we hunted the goal with 6 players against 5.

The Huskies U17 team faced Amneville-Troyes on Sunday for the 3rd time this season. After being outplayed in the first two matches, our U17's game together as a team to defeat Amneville-Troyes 5-2.
Every Huskies player demonstrated a passion to win and competed aggressively each shift of the game. Rob had a great game in goal and was supported by a solid defensive effort from Hilmir, Jacques, Aleks and Jan.
Our win on Sunday was also a result of improved positional play of our forwards, stronger forecheck and increased shots on goal. Our U'17's demonstrated improved discipline and respect by keeping penalties to a minimum which allowed us to keep the momentum of the game in our favor.
