10 minute update: The US retains more possession but Jamaica is not making it easy. Because of a speed difference, a few Jamaican players have come close to yellow cards for ankle blows that they didn't mean to do, but did anyway trying to intercept.
Tidbit: 3 Portland Timbers players are on the US Team tonight!

Tonight was my sixth week of hockey. Which means my first session of the development program has reached its conclusion. We started out the session with a few skate and position drills. All to prep us for the second half of class, a full ice game. They mixed the beginner and advanced skaters together and separated us by jersey color.

I intercepted and blocked a few passes. Got a few shots on goal. The best moment though was my breakaway. Got the puck off the faceoff and made a beeline for the goal. I managed to keep the puck in front of me and everyone behind me. Just me and the goalie. Wrister right at the 5 hole. Shot was blocked though. Got complement for it by the coach over the hockey program. Even despite completely wiping out, sliding few feet across the ice behind the net after the shot.

All in all, I'm having a blast. I'm really glad I decided to go for it, even if it does kick my butt. No time for rest, next session starts next week.
