Shaler ready to forge ahead this season with young squad
TribLIVE Sports Videos
A 6-0 loss to Canon-McMillan is not necessarily the way Shaler hockey coach Curt Hetz wanted to start his season, but the play in the third period is something his squad can build off of.
“I told them to forget about the score, go out and play like it was 0-0,” Hetz said.
The Titans heeded their coach's advice and skated even with the Big Macs in the third period.
“We were down three defensemen, so I put a forward back on defense, so we were short up front,” Hetz said.
One aspect that looked consistently strong was the defense and penalty kill, which killed all four Canon-McMillan power plays.
Despite allowing six goals in 33 shots, Hetz said goalie Vince Evans played a good game. Evans didn't give up any soft goals and made several outstanding saves.
Hetz said this team would rely heavily on defense.
Players like Mike Klena, Austin Martz and Luke Grossman will handle the scoring.
