November 9 Update From Garth Terlizzi

The Lightning are 5-1 with one game remaining before the Christmas break.  We had a great 5-3 victory over the previous unbeaten Xtreme on Saturday and  avenged our only loss of the season.  So, we would be tied for 1st in the league.  Christian (as he prefers to be called) is doing awesome.  He is playing anywhere from 10-20 minutes per game at the forward position.  No goals yet, but he has great footwork and is not afraid to mix it up with the other team!  During halftime of one game, I asked for volunteers to play goalie in the 2nd half.  He was the only one who stepped up and said he wanted to be goalie.  I told him that we need to work on it in practice before I threw him into a game time situation.  He works so hard at practice and always has a huge smile on his face.  He’s great with his teammates and they love having him on their team.
