After finishing a strenuous week of play against some of our hardest competition, we now head into our final week of conference play.

To start off the week we played Cumberland Valley last Monday. Picture this: pouring rain, wind howling against the locker room doors, anticipating cancelation. Imagine the adrenaline when we find out the game was on. Our coach always tells us how we can’t control the weather. He has never been more right, but he sent us out to warm up with a thought for us to ponder. It will come down to who handles the situation better, and who wants it more.

It was a fun game to play with a high level of play from both teams, but we came out on top with an overtime win 2-1. Wednesday we played Central Dauphin and unfortunately lost, but we were proud of our overall passing and communication. Lastly we played Mechanicsburg on Thursday. After a self-admittingly slow first half we stepped it up the second half and it ended with a win 4-1.

Our last home and conference game is Monday against State College, but it is bittersweet. For us seniors it is the last game that we will be playing at our home turf. We are looking forward to a great game filled with high level play against some very skilled players.

Playoffs are in our foreseeable future, but Monday’s game is just as important as the first. I am certain that our team wants to end on a good note.

Monday is the first of many lasts for the senior class, but we aren’t finished yet. Stay tuned.
