On December 16, 2012, Voice K had the opportunity to attend a hockey game at the Hershey Centre.
“It was a tough loss, but hopefully after Christmas we’ll come back stronger”
It was the third period; the Steelheads were down 2-1 and were desperately trying to make a comeback. If they could have scored 2 more goals, they would have had a chance at winning the game. The crowd was on their toes, but as the goal buzzer went off for the third time for the Sudbury Wolves (making it 3-1), we knew it was over.
Writers of the Voice K magazine were invited to attend the Mississauga Steelheads vs. the Sudbury Wolves OHL game at the Hershey Centre on December 16th, 2012. As budding magazine writers, we got a tour of the arena, including a visit to the media room! We were even fortunate enough to interview a player on the teelheads team.
I got to interview a player named Bobby MacIntyre; although they had lost the game, he seemed happy to do the interview. He admits that although it was a tough loss, they had played well during the first 2 periods which had included a goal from Stuart Percy. MacIntyre has great hopes that the Steelheads will come back stronger after the Christmas break. (Later, the team will win the game that took place on December 30th against the Brampton Battalion). When I asked him how he felt about the support of his fans, he said, “Great! They come out every year and support our team.” He also encourages people of all ages to watch and enjoy their games.
To conclude, although the team suffered a loss on December 16th, they are back stronger than ever. The members of Voice K and I are very thankful to have had an opportunity such as this. So what are you waiting for? Come out and support the Mississauga Steelheads at their next game!
It was a grand experience and I had lots of fun watching the match. This time, the game was played between the Mississauga Steelheads and the Sudbury Wolves. Let me tell you a secret… I live in Mississauga.
So now, you could probably guess which team I support, right?
I was so excited upon walking into the hockey hall. There were so many people waiting for the game. As a reporter, I was allowed to sit in the best place to enjoy the game. I sat in the broadcast room! In this large room, I was able to watch the grueling match with a great view. It is really nice to
not only watch the game, but to also listen to the wonderful commentator. Otherwise, I would not have understood how the teams performed.
I think that this kind of sport should belong to adults rather than children. My brother and I began learning how to play hockey about 10 months ago. We both enjoy playing it. However, if you compared us with the players from the real match, our practice seems like a mere boy’s game. We play so nice and quietly, whereas the professionals play so fierce and agile.
Another game that I play is soccer. Like the game of hockey, soccer players must use teamwork as well. However, there are some differences between soccer and hockey. First of all, hockey requires more skill in order to keep your stability and balance, because you are skating on the ice. Secondly, you have to coordinate your arms and legs. The best way to do this is to keep them together; otherwise, you cannot play hockey properly. But soccer is different, as you only need to pay attention to your position on the field. Also, in soccer, your legs are more important than your arms. Actually, according to the rules, you cannot use your arms at all in a soccer game unless you are the goalkeepers.
Well, it is time to talk about the results. My favourite team ended up losing the game, so the Sudbury Wolves bit the Mississauga Steelheads this time. I hope our Steelheads won’t forget the pain and can bite back in the near future. Despite the results, I had a great and memorable time at the hockey game.
