Glenrothes Cougars field experimental side against Edinburgh Knights

Glenrothes Cougars 2 – Edinburgh Knights 3

We caught up with Glenrothes Courgers Coach and Manager, Michael Bease, after the double header against the Edinburgh Knights .

Michael said, “We decided to use the double header against the Knights of Edinbugh as an opportunity to field an experimental side and try out some new systems.

The Knights took advantage in Game 1 at Murrayfield Ice Arena, Edinburgh, comfortably winning 7-3. But after a good week of training and a couple of squad rotations, I was confident we could compete and get the win. But a poor start saw us finish the first period three goals down.

We regrouped and got back to 3-2, but couldn’t find the game levelling goal our performance deserved.

You can’t give away three goals in the first period to teams like the Knights. If guys don’t stick to the system and are not prepared to play for 60 minutes, we won’t compete.

We have a couple of weeks now to get to work and prepare for our next game against the Stirling Wolves. Everyone is playing for their spot on the team now, and I expect there will be some changes to the roster.”
