MC Crab people “snaps” all opponents

October 8, 2010

The Crab People are at it again. With conference just around the corner, they are a tough team to beat.

“We are going to be a hard team to beat down the road. We have a starting lineup with no weak points, a great goalie, our bench is very deep, and our team chemistry is like no other,” said freshman Tony Marino.

  At their home tournament which was on Sept. 24, and 25, they played St. Marys University and won 25–0. For their second game they played Macalester College and won 19–7. For their third game they played St. Johns University and won 19–5. For their last game of the home tourney they went against Knox College and won 14–5.

They also played a tournament this past weekend at St. Marys.  At this tourney they played Carleton College for their first game and won 19–2. In their second game they played Grinnel and won 14–9. In their third game they played Augustana College and won 19–5. And in their last game they played Knox and won 15–9.

“We are in the position that I’d hope we would be in. Everything is set and we just have to keep practicing and playing hard to get a bid to the national tournament and then continue to do the same thing to hopefully win the national title,” said coach Steve Collins.

The conference tournament will be held in three weeks from now the weekend of the 23rd and 24th. The tournament will be held by Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa. The college offers a double deep pool. Right now the crab people are 8–0 and are the 1st seed in conference with a lot of expectations heading towards conference and the national tournament.

“The season is going in the right direction, and i feel that we are entering the conference tournament at our peak and should come out on top and earn a spot in the national tournament,” said junior Frank Wasielewski.

“Were playing as a team and everybody is doing there part. Were a group and whole, and were aiming in the right direction which is going to be very beneficial to us when we start play at the National tournament. Right now were just focusing on us and our style of play. Our conditioning is getting tougher, were working more on fundamentals and we have been developing more on both offensive and defensive. Were the team to beat as of right now and everybody on the team is ready to step us and take the challenge,” said junior Ken Collins.
