We’re going streaking!!! 3 in a row is officially a streak right? And the kind we actually want this time.
The boys will be in tough tonight to keep that momentum rolling against a very talented Hawks team. They are 7-2-1 in their last 10 and we have 7 wins through the entire season. Aside from a tough opponent, the team has been off since Thursday. A nice break to heal some wounds but when you finally start hitting your stride you don’t want to sit at home on the couch.
