Today I have a picture of Violet and two of her friends from Hockey Camp. They look like they are having a great time.
Today we took a break from lacrosse to head to Just Shoot It with some of her next season teammates. It was fun watching her and her friends working on lifting the puck.
Tonight I thought I’d share this animated gif of Violet taking a shot during tonight’s practice.
Tonight we have a picture of Violet’s hockey team celebrating their second win in a row. A strong 5-2 win over a team that beat them 6-3 last time they played. It’s been amazing to watch how much better all the girls are getting. I guess the endless trips to the rink are paying off.
Another weekend of hockey is behind us. It was a pretty good weekend, after losing 4-2 on Saturday, they managed to tie the same team 2-2 on Sunday. It was a close game, with Orangeville taking a 2 -1 lead over the Dolphins with just over 2 minutes left in the game. It took pulling the goalie, but with just over a minute left Violet put in the tieing goal. It was a great game. Today’s picture is from late in the game, Violet is carrying the puck in for what should have been a great scoring chance. Unfortunately, she was pulled down by two skaters from the other team before she could get a shot or a pass off.
Today Violet played her last ball hockey game of the EMBHL season. Sure she might play on a team at provincials, but this is the end of the red team season. They had a chance of winning it all but came up just short. Losing 4-3. today’s picture of the day is Violet and Lucas discussing what play they were going to try their next shift. Between them, they scored all the Red team’s goals, Lucas with 2 and Violet with one. They came close to tying it up in the final minutes but just couldn’t do it. Still, it was a good season for Violet, who missed a few games with her broken arm.
Today was Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest, an event Violet had been looking forward to for weeks. A chance to skate with her hero Natalie Spooner. When she broke her arm last week we were so worried that she’d miss it. I’m so glad that it turned out to be such a memorable day for my little Hockey Diva.
Between the issues with my blog and family commitments, I’m having trouble keeping up with my renewed focus on blogging. But more is to come, for now here is a sneak peek at what Violet’s Jersey will look like next hockey season.
Today I thought I’d share the amazing end of season gift Violet got from her DS team this season.
