On Thursday, Dec. 7, Grosse Pointe North and University of Detroit Jesuit went head to head in boys ice hockey. North ultimately took the loss, scoring little throughout the game, which ended 6-2. Senior Brendan Nelson, and sophomore Austin Albrecht scored the two goals.

“Our game Friday vs U of D was a hard fought battle for two periods, with a score of 2-2 after two periods of play, but U of D ended up on the winning end with a final score of 6-2,”  Coach Mike Maltese said via email. “U of D is currently ranked in the top 4 in the state of Michigan.”

Even though they lost last weekend, the boys still have Coach Mike Maltese to motivate them.

“He pushes us to be the best we can by letting us know what we can do,” senior CJ Ramsdell said. “(He also lets) us know when we’re not living up to expectations and pushes us to ultimately our full potential.”

Even though the team lost the last game, the players still have high hopes for the season.

“I hope we get a winning record this year,” junior Nathan Robinson said, “It’s one of the things the past two years I’ve been on the team that hasn’t been accomplished and I think that we can do it now.”

This year the team plans on facing all three defending state championship teams. They also aim to play with the same consistency day in and day out, according to Coach Maltese.

“Changing the mentality of the hockey program in general is something that we as a team are striving for,” Coach Maltese said.
