Lady Knights’ talent, class is unsurpassed

I had the pleasure of watching our Potsdam IceStorm team win the 16U Girls Tier II New York State championship game vs. the Amherst Lady Knights on March 4.

It was a great game, and both teams fought hard to the very end. The Amherst players and coaches displayed class and sportsmanship throughout both games we played against them in the tournament.

All is good on the players and coaching. Great team, great coaches. It was sad to see how disappointed the girls were after the game. I know as I have been on the other end of that equation as a coach.

Your heart has to go out to them. It was a great game, and the girls should hold their heads high. The fact that the Amherst players showed the ultimate in sportsmanship speaks volumes about the abundance of class this team and coaching staff has.

You should be very proud of these girls and coaches. We told our girls that they beat one heck of a good team, and that we owe it to the Amherst Knights to compete at our highest level in the Nationals.

The Amherst coaches then made it a point to wish us the best of luck in the Nationals. They show class — personified.

We would like to thank Amherst Hockey for once again running a great tournament, and we are looking forward to future competitions. Go IceStorm.
