Bobcats High Hopes For Round 2

It was a disappointing semester to say the least. Yet, the Bobcats still have their hopes high to make a playoff run this semester, and there is plenty to be excited about. Although there were some low-points (the DeBrase-Silvey mishap versus Merrimack being the lowest), this years' team showed some positive signs with the depth being the focal point. The team has had healthy scratches in most games this year, and that number will only increase this semester. Senior Bobby Coppersmith commented saying, "having too much depth is a good problem to have. it makes everyone work harder in practice, and it ultimately makes us a better team."

The main struggle this past semester was goal scoring, and fortunately the problem will be fixed with the addition of Sean Thomas '14 coming back to campus. Junior alternate captain Chris DeBrase is especially ecstatic, as he is getting back his two-year linemate. Thomas has led the team in goal scoring and total points in his first two seasons and he looks to make an immediate impact. While Joe Dell'ario '13 and Garrett Johnson '14 were solid in goal, Matt Mosca '14 will also be a valued addition as he returns to campus from Copenhagen. He is expected in net immediately, right after he tells the boys some tales from the exotic lands."It was wild boys, but I have been dreaming of being back between the pipes for some time now. An experience I won't forgot but will be nothing if we can take home a cup", Mosca stated.

The 'Cats have 8 games this semester, and they hope to make a run at taking home all of them. Junior alternate captain Ty Silvey has been on record saying that he has high hopes this year, and that he particularly is looking forward to the 3-game homestand in mid-Janurary.
