2014 Rankings

– Offense – 2nd in League, 19th in State

– Defense –3rd in League, 22nd in State

2014 Outlook

Offense – Whoever takes over for Dayton will be tasked with the continued offensive growth that was experienced in 2013. The offense was much better in 2013 than in previous seasons. They benefited from experienced players and one very experienced player returns in Ian Smay, who will be heavily leaned upon to score goals this season. Brian Mascall will also contribute.

Defense – Inexperience hurt the Bulldogs defensively last year and gave them many woes. Depth will be more present as this program continues to grow and limiting big plays and goals will be crucial.

Final Evaluation – The Bulldogs came close to winning a playoff game last season despite having a weak defense. They face tough obstacles this season with a new coach yet to be named, a strange mix of experience, but inexperience at the same time, and the departure of one key offensive weapon. The defense will need to play great immediately and help will need to be had from newcomers. A tough league and schedule makes things difficult for this squad, but four or five wins is a distinct possibility.

Key Returners:

Ian Smay (Sr., F) – 12 goals, 1 assist

Brian Mascall (Sr) – 3 goals
