Getting back used to the flow of the season these days. I missed the blog last week, but I wasn’t going to miss this week’s! I'm happy to say the Bears were able to capture our first victory of the season. We played a tough St. Mary’s team that found the back of the net quite a bit. Fortunately for us, we were able to find the back of the net ourselves and pulled out the W in the shootout.
As a team, we walked away happy with the win, but knowing we left some plays on the field and didn’t do quite as well as we could have. I like that we weren’t 100 percent satisfied with ourselves. We have to have that hunger to fine tune and get better every day, all season long. I call that championship hunger, and so far we’ve been coming to practice hungry. That hunger will serve us well!
We’ve got an equally hungry San Diego State team coming to town this Friday in our home opener. Our returners undoubtedly remember last year’s dog fight that went down to the wire (Bears by 2). With two very similar teams that refuse to give up or stop trying, Friday night promises to be another great match up. I have a feeling there’s a rivalry brewing! Don’t miss it! Go Bears!
