Sorry to say that judging by the answers to this topic I think that might be the case
Looks like Groton lost both games against Pomfret and Proctor last Saturday. Serious lack of talent on roster maybe 1 forwards, 2 D and SR Goalie looked ok. The other goalies were train wrecks not sure what any of them were doing in varsity game.
The goal here is to make the Elite 8, there is never any schools from the ISL that makes it past the first round. And yipee for St. Marks, trying making the Elite 8 for once?
SSK U18 is 6-5 in the USPHL - so they are a middle of the road local u18 team.
They scrimmaged one of the better preps on Saturday, and they had to turn the scoreboard off.
Please don't ell me that full season u18 is the way to go.
Really puts a pin in the myth of full season U18 being anything different than jv hockey. Worst part is that all the preps are just forming their teams and have yet to have final cuts.
The issue is that people see full season as a path to college on par with prep which it is not.
Was not there so cannot comment on goalies talent or anyone else but I assume those games were scrimmage/tryouts. What you see at one of those games may not be what you see during the season. Kids who eventually get cut, rolling 4 or 5 lines....
These are scrimmages, the teams haven’t been picked and the season hasn’t started yet. For the record prep is a proven track to the next level of hockey, FS is not.
Full Season around here is JV hockey
