Rock County Fury drop their opening game 5-4
The Rock County Fury opened up their season with a 5-4 loss to the Fox Cities Stars on Saturday November 18, 2023. But the loss overshadows a great opening game effort from the team.
Head coach Luke Steurer said “We came out a little slow to start the first period but got settled in more about half way through. They took a 3-0 lead after the first period. Our girls kept fighting to stay in it all game and never gave up even when we were down 1-5. We crawled our way back in the game and made it 4-5 in the 3rd. It was great to see the team keep pushing the whole game and able to come back with in a goal to give ourselves a chance. They never let down or stopped playing. This was a great test for us in our first game playing against a team that has a lot of depth and good players. We held our own and stayed right in it. We work on a couple things in practice and I think it is a different game.”
Next up, they have a Thanksgiving tournament against Brookfield and Arrowhead on Friday, November 24, 2023 at the Howard G. Mullett Ice Center in Hartland, WI.
The players are:
- Sophomore Forward Jayden Lake
- Freshman Defenseman Piper Aaker
- Senior Forward Makayla Mackiewicz
