The Dragons have opened the year with 3 wins against only 1 loss in the initial weeks of the season. Things started with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Northville, the game’s only goal coming with under a minute left to play. The conference season kicked off a few days later with a 3-2 win over Troy. The back and forth game was also decided late, with the tie-breaking goal coming with 1:22 left in the 3rd period.
Although the next game was a 0-4 loss to Alpena, the Dragons bounced back with a strong performance against league opponent Berkley. Down 0-2 in the second period, the team fought hard to get back in the game, scoring 5 unanswered goals, including varsity firsts for Andy Potyk and Brendan Gurski for a convincing 5-2 victory.
