2009 Fort Collins High School Hockey
Under the expert coaching from Dan Timmons and Clayton Kvasager, the Fort Collins High Hockey Team is cutting through opponents like a knife through butter. This weekends games were no different with wins over Loveland (7-3) and Dakota Ridge (9-3). Today the Fort Collins Hockey team is in first place in the Tier III division with fourteen points. Their nearest opponents are Rocky and Columbine with twelve points each.
The Friday night game had the team playing in front of the largest crowds seen this season. In fact it was the largest assemblage of fans many players had seen in their young careers! Groups of students had coalesced and were loudly bantering back and forth, their teen-age voices echoing off the stone walls and ice floor of the EPIC hockey arena. This reporter has been coaching and attending hockey games since 1999 and it was the first time attendance of security personnel made sense. I’ll take that duty much more seriously in the future.
Adam Crawford was net minder for the game whom at this point in the season is enjoying a 2.28 Goals Average Allowed (GAA). Scoring leaders with ten point or more include Cody Palumbo (17pts), Nick Whynott (17pts), Ross Stults (15pts), Tyler Schott (12pts) and Rodger Maddox (10pts). C’mon Matt Nagel, only one more point and you too can join this illustrious group. It wouldn’t be fair not to include the top three penalty leaders, just to keep things in perspective. They include Tyler Schott (16!), Brandon Uhl (14) and Ross Stults (12).
If you want to see some great hockey then come out and support the team. There are plenty of home games left.
