Your blue shirted heroes walked to SMC to take on their cross-town rivals SMC in the CISAA Championship. The regular season saw them split their games with each team winning a close game. It was a hot sunny day with a delayed start time as both teams waited for referees to show up. SMC got out to a quick lead capitalizing on their ability to gain possession off the draw. As the game progressed, ball possession became more even with both teams utilizing solid defense, good goaltending and quick transitions to gain an advantage. UCC slowly started to take control of the game scoring some highlight reel goals eventually getting out in front. The last few minutes of the game were stressful as SMC looked to even the score. UCC defense did not falter and managed to keep SMC from tying the game. Hard fought loose ball challenges typified the effort put forth by the defense. The.delayed start time ended what has become an annual tradition on the walk back from SMC. The UCC ice cream truck was not outside the school when the coaches got back. This would have been a day to enjoy a good ice cream cone at the end of a hot, successful afternoon.
