"We again have done some good things in the past month. We really just need to get on the winning track and I think a lot of things will fall into place and the silly mistakes will go away. We have some great moments throughout games we just need to eliminate the mental lapses. We are moving in the right direction and have improved since we played CLC last. Rainy River is a tough team and currently 7-1. We could have won either one of these games but showed that we can play with the top teams in this league. We need to believe that we can win these games, and play with urgency."
The Spartans are off until Jan. 6th and 7th when they travel to Grand Rapids, MN for another tournament.
