Wins have been a sporadic occurrence for the Chatham Maroons. Winning has not been an every weekend event for this young roster.

However, last weekend, the Maroons managed to pick up a pair of wins under new head coach and general manager Tyler Roeszler against the St. Thomas Stars and St. Mary’s Lincolns.

“We are starting to learn and understand how we need to play every night to be successful,” said Roeszler of his team. “We have seen continued growth within our team every game we’ve played.”

The Maroons now sit at 8-8-1-4 on the season, dead centre of the GOJHL Western Conference standings.

According to Roeszler, this weekend’s success came from the Maroons’ understanding of a few key points.

“Game management is a big point of emphasis for our team because it’s so vital to team success,” Roeszler explained.

“We are starting to understand the habits and plays that result in us having the puck more often and generating more offensive chances. Knowing the score is important – how to play when we are up a goal versus when we are down a goal. Learning how to win is a team skill and we have started that process.”

For Chatham Maroons fans, they hope more wins are in the future, and not just the near future, but a continued winning culture within the organization.

According to Roeszler, that will come from a roster of players who are excited to represent the Chatham Maroons, and the winning tradition the team has built within the community.

“We have a great group of players who are enjoying coming to the rink and improving.”

The Maroons will play the LaSalle Vipers at home this Sunday in their only game this week, a 7pm puck drop on Sunday, November 17.
