The opening week of the EPIHL is usually a pretty solid affair for Phoenix. Usually there are four points in the bag and the usual WOTR loss (the what?) is behind us.
This weekend was a cracking demonstration that this league is getting tougher and that Wildcats will not be anyone's whipping-boy this year.
As benches were cleared and sticks were used as weapons by people who should know better in some of the more southern rinks, Phoenix had two solid games of hockey in Bracknell - where the two points were successfully nabbed - and then at the Ice Dome where those bad kitties managed to hold us to a point.
Nevertheless, the potential in this Phoenix side is clear. This is the first weekend and people will be wanting results from the very start but mark our words: Phoenix is rising.
On this week's show, we start the season with a post-weekend chat with the Phoenix Captain of some 6 years, Luke Boothroyd. We talk about the season to come, the opening weekend, the opposition and what he has been up to off the ice.
