The Kingston Junior Ice Wolves are playing 500 hockey…20 points in 20-games…Friday night they’ll play the Kitchener-Waterloo Rangers…7.30 at the Invista Centre…the girls are currently in 9th place in the 20-team provincial league..
“Everybody really wants to do well and there all really competitive and were a really close knit team so we work really well together–everybody just wants to do well and that’s what’s driving us.”
Also driving them to be better is head coach Troy Sweet
“Fitness is a lot better this year–Troy put a big emphasis on that so that has really helped us–we play the same throughout the whole game..Troy expects a lot from us and I think we do better when there’s a lot more expected of us and I think when were challenged we work a lot better.”
Jalink sports a stingy goals against average of 2.06..she credits the Provincial Junior League in making her a better goaltender
“Oh its definitely a challenge–every team in this league is challenging..there’s no easy team–every game you have to be prepared and its always a challenge–but I really like it–its a lot of fun and it really pushes you to work harder and be better and strive to be the best player you can be.”
