'Tis but a Scratch'

The thing about playing a vastly superior opponent is that it exposes, by comparison, what we can’t do…yet. An interpretive video of yesterday’s contest would be the scene in ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ in which the dark knight (Proctor) spars with King Arthur. The knight’s response to having his limbs lopped off: “Tis but a scratch.” “I’ve had worse.” “Just a flesh wound.” Being down 2-0 after two shifts and 5-0 after a period, and having the other team tell some of their players told not to shoot didn’t matter to us. Our team stayed focused and pumped for the full 45 minutes and we’ll use the experience to motivate us to keep working hard to get better.
