Coach’s Blog – Let the Games Begin

The MOB ended their pre-season going 1-2 in the Okotoks Showcase this weekend. After defeating Okotoks 5-3 in their first game the Barons dropped a 4-1 decision to Brooks and folowed that with a 6-4 loss to Camrose. The weekend was a very strong test for the team and once again the results were mixed. On the upside the effort and physicality was much improved from the first 3 exhibition games but once again the team offence was very inconsistent.

Kevin Lacroix had 5 goals on the weekend, linemate Luc Lalor had 1 goal and 3 assists and Texas native Alex Cromwell had 4 assists.

The Barons are now down to 25 players to start the season 2 goalies, 9 defenceman and 14 forwards.
