HEATHER THOMSON ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES
It has been a year of change and growth for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
Coming into the 2010/2011 season, the team was new from top to the bottom. With only seven returning players and a new coaching and training staff, the team that hit the ice was a lot different from the previous season.
The Bulldogs were following the best season in franchise history, and were ready to take on anything.
Unfortunately, the young team had its share of struggles. They started out strong, but it was clear the team had a lot of growing to do.
Its funny, its hard to look at it as a year with lots of ups and downs, explained assistant coach Kevin Hasselberg. It was a lot of learning opportunities, that we now hope to apply to the playoffs.
He said together the team has learned to rely on each other, and they started to play the kind of game that will serve them well in the playoffs.
Were feeling really good, assistant captain Frank Riddle said. This team is built for the playoffs, because we are a hard working team.
He added that they have to focus on one game at a time, and, if they do that, then they will surprise a lot of people
in the playoffs.Head coach Paul Esdale agrees. He said
they are going in as the underdogs, but thats a good position for them.
Were not cocky, but we are confident, he said. This is a group that we know
if each player plays to their potential we can do a lot of damage.
And he believes his team is up for that challenge.
