For the Tomahawk Leader

Coach Chris Bembinster said the Hatchets played “very well” for the first two and a half periods, but “could have been a little better.”
“We talked with the team about competing and managing emotions,” Bembinster stated after the game. “All little parts of the game we need to fine tune coming into the last part of our season. Great lessons to take away from tonight, then refocus and head to our next game. This team will be ready come playoff time.”

“We were able to dig deep and finish this game the right way,” Bembinster stated. “There are some really good things happening, and a few that need to be cleaned up soon.”
