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.

CALLING ALL PLAYERS: Start Running.

We have a lot to accomplish this year.  Do the following daily.

  1. Put your running shoes by your bed with socks, shorts/pants, shirt, gloves, hat. 
  2. Wake up. Don't think.
  3. Put pants on one leg at a time. Next shirt. Rest of clothes and shoes. One step at a time.
  4. Eat something small on the way out the door. It doesn't matter what it is. Drink a glass of water.
  5. Run for 20 mins minimum. More is better. Run rain, snow, hail, sleet, or firestorm. Run in boots if you have to. Do at least two full-speed 100yd sprints in the last five minutes. Do not walk. The slowest you go is a jog. Waddle if necessary.
  6. Do at least 20 burpees at the finish. More is better. You have a lot of these in your future.
  7. Dry off, eat a good breakfast, and congratulate yourself for being an athlete. Have a great day.
