 team suffered their first loss of the season. Coming off of two overwhelming victories (16 goals for and 4 against), they were taken by surprise Tuesday at the Utah Olympic Oval by the speed and ability of team Puma.

 “  North Sheet  
From the opening whistle, team Puma, coming off a recent defeat to The Hippies, showed the guys from team Western Road Trips that they came to play. Puma maintained good control of the ball and drove into Western Road Trips territory and scored their first goal in the second minute of play. Puma used a combination of long upfield passes and multitude of substitutes to wear down Western Road Trips' eight players. Puma scored another goal off a rebound before Damian of Western Road Trips made precise lob shot over the Puma goal tender and into the back of the net for Western Road Trips' first goal. At half time the score was 3-1 Puma.

The second half saw Western Road Trips tighten their play and get many more shots on goal. Brody and Nate, from Western Road Trips, each scored a goals in the second half and Puma got two goals for a final score of 5-3. These teams will match up again on March 22nd and Western Road Trips hopes to fare much better.

 field in Utah and provides a good mix of long passes and fast play because the ball can be played off of the walls similar to hockey and is only considered out of bounds if it goes over the plexiglass "boards" that form the wall around the rink.
