What I think...

1. Rode is much better than he showed today, but how much did it really matter given the defense played in front on him. Maybe we only lose by 4.
2. On the contrary, Stover was made to look like the best goalie in D1. He made some pretty stops for sure, but that seems to happen to goalie's when they are aided by the pipes and stick shots at close range. How many shots just in front of the crease did UVA either put it in stover's stick or hit a pipe, 4-5-6-7?
3. Kraus is far from 100% and his lack of participation in the early season scrimmages clearly showed in his game
4. Dox needs to be more selfish...
5. For the better part of UVA's 4 preseason scrimmages they had J Conners playing close D yet they open the season with him back at LSM. Get the best 4 poles on the field.
6. Defense looks way over coached to the point they can't play. Throw your 6 best defenders on the field and tell them to "play"/figure it out... I'll bet it looks better than today.
7. We need to give some minutes to other folks at attack...Griffin Harris and Mitch Gordon have both shown some ability to finish. Our finishing today could not have been worse imho.
8. Surprised by how bad we got beat at the face-off x today. I didn't like how we kept alternating between Schwenk and LaSalle. Seems like the best FOGO's need multiple reps to really figure out their opponent. That said, we created a ton of 50-50 ground balls of the face-off and could seem to win any
9. There were 4-5 moments in todays game where we had the ball after just scoring and the chance to close the lead to 3-4 goals. Scoring in one of these situations may likely have shifted the momentum but we never converted...far from it actually, we quickly threw a bad pass, ran into a double/triple team or missed an easy shot on the door step.
10. I probably hope this more than I think it, but hopefully this ass whopping gets the everyone's attention. Lehigh and High Point will add a lot to the story.
