Last Thursday, the Bulldogs took on Flint Hill in their regular season home opener. This was following the first away game on Monday, which resulted in a disappointing but well-fought loss to WCAC opponent DeMatha (16-17 OT). The Dogs started off strong offensively, but weren’t quite putting away the Huskies by halftime, who lingered behind STA by a score of 9-5. However, the Bulldogs turned up the notch in the second half and took care of Flint Hill with ease. The Dogs only allowed one goal in the final two quarters, and put up another nine offensively. The final score was 18-6, with outstanding offensive performances from Henry Holliday ‘19, Carter Tate ‘18 and Nick Meyer ‘19. This was a great first win for the Dogs against a team they should have, and did, take down by a large margin. They now sit at 1-2 on the season following a close loss to Gonzaga, another tough WCAC opponent, on Saturday (4-7). Their next game is at home on Monday, March 12 against a solid squad from The Heights. Face-off is at 4pm. Get out to that!
