Rochester Monarchs Split Weekend With 2nd Place South Shore Kings

By Jillian Randall 01/23/2017, 3:45pm EST

Since the Holiday break, the Jr Monarchs just haven’t seemed to be the same team as in the first half.  This, however, changed this weekend.  The Jr Monarchs earned a nice split against the 2nd place South Shore Kings of the North Division.  “I felt like the guys started to get back to normal in the game Wednesday against Syracuse, even though we lost the game.  We were playing with a short bench, but the guys really stepped up.  I felt like we should have really won that game, but it was a step in the right direction” said Head Coach Dave Leaderer.  The Jr Monarchs then got away from the rink on Thursday to clear their minds.  The Jr Monarchs had a team-building event at the bowling alley instead of practice on Thursday.  “I felt that we just needed to get away from the rink and have some fun” added Leaderer.  This clearly worked as the Jr Monarchs came out flying Saturday night.
