An Ending But Not The Ending

Jonathan's hockey season came to an end on the weekend. There were two games, and we caught his final home game but not the very final game which was out-of-town.

It seems early for the season to be over, but it's just the regular seasons, and there is still plenty of hockey ahead. They have two weeks or so to practice and work on drills, and then the playoff start. There will also be one more out-of-town tournament.

To the pics!

There are a few very good players on JJ's team, but this guy is probably the best.
He's a great skater and seems to know what to do naturally.

The other team had a breakaway, and our goalie made a great save, catching the puck in his glove.

This time the other team scored the final goal of the game, but the good guys won 5 -3 after falling behind 2 - 0 at the beginning. I think this means that they finish in first place in a 17 team league.

A few shots with Jonathan.

At the ready for a faceoff.

Trying to clear the puck.

Playing his position by staying between the puck carrier and the net.

Love going to those grandkid hockey games & practices. I usually go to 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday, but cant go now as I can't drive until the surgeon gives me the green light. Soon, I hope.

Wonderful photos . I remember those days when I played hockey as a kid , early mornings on weekends some evenings after school . My boys didn't play hockey they were more the base ball types in summer and in winter they played a bit of curling, and were both on bowling teams different strokes for different folks lol ! Thanks for sharing , have a good day .
