Galena (HSLL) @ Woodcreek (CA NCLA-E) Results

Saturday, March 2nd 2013 

For their first game of the season the Galena Boy’s Varsity team traveled to Grass Valley, CA to play a neutral site contest vs Woodcreek (CA NCLA-E). The game was played under sunny, warm conditions at Nevada Union HS. Prior to starting the game, Woodcreek (2-0) had defeated local HSLL opponent Spanish Springs 16-1, so the Grizzlies knew they were in for a good game.

Galena started the game slowly as Woodcreek scored 4 unanswered goals in the first quarter. Galena looked out of sorts in their first game of the season making mistakes that were being exploited by a disciplined Woodcreek team. After a cleansing talk between the 1st and 2nd quarter, Galena crawled back into the game with three goals in the second quarter to Woodcreek’s one to go into halftime down 3-5. From halftime on the Grizzlies played with more hustle and jam but the only goal came from Woodcreek as they added an extra goal to extend their lead to 3-6 after the 3rd quarter.
