And the Boys Keep Winning, Winning and Winning, Winning

(the title of this post should be read to the theme of 'Let's Get It Started' by the Black Eyed Peas)

Wow, what a season for the Bethel Royals hockey team! Last night they continued their remarkable run defeating the UW-River Falls squad 2-1 in WI. It was an extremely exciting game with action up and down the rink all night long. Both goalies were solid and made many great saves. Jeff wasn't able to put any points on the board but he had some good plays, blocked a couple of crucial shot attempts, and was a gnat in the face mask of the Falcon players all night long on the penalty kill.

Up next for Bethel are the Green Knights from St. Norbert. This promises to be another difficult game for the Royals who are 1-17 against St. Norbert since the two teams first met in 1989. However, this season has been one of heroics and new beginnings for the Bethel boys. So all bets should be off on Saturday night. You can read the St. Norbert preview here.

Since the game is in Green Bay I'm not going to be there but my heart and mind will be all night long.

Major thanks to Graham for driving me to the game. On the way home we had a good conversation about the difficulties of youth ministry, the crucial role fathers play in their kids lives and the idea that a person's understanding of God's wrath and hatred of sin can affect their appreciation of the cross of Christ.
