After 7-games on the the road to start the season…the Kingston Junior Ice Wolves finally have their home opener…it’s Friday night…7.30 at the Invista Centre against the Cambridge Rivulettes…
“I think it’s going to go really well, we’ve been training really hard for this. All through the summer as well all the girls have been doing their own training off the ice. We’ve all been putting in 110 percent and effort every practise, so I think it’s going to pay off. I really do think it’s going to be a good game.”
“The girls come from far distances and we’ve never played together before, like most of us. And it’s nice to have a new team and players to play with. It’s working really well so far, so hopefully it will continue and we’ll get better as we go on.”
The Ice Wolves are off to their best start ever, six points in their first seven games.
“I think this has been a really great start for us. Our team is so close already, we’re like a family and we just connect on the ice so well. Although some of the games may have not gone our way with some overtime losses, we’re still fighting back every game, every shift, every period we’re getting back up there and I think it’s going to be a great season and we’ve done really well.”
One of the biggest reasons for the team’s turnaround, head coach Troy Sweet from Belleville.
“Troy’s a great coach he’s very close with all the girls and he helps us out if we have any problems on or off the ice. During practises he’s really good, he’s really encouraging and he helps us out a lot.”
