Public Service Announcement

OK, before anyone gets into a tizzy over last night's championship game loss to Union, extending RPI's tournament titleless streak to eight... please, heed our advice.

At the end of the day, it's a non-conference game, and we continue to learn things about this team in non-conference games that can and most likely will be applied in league play - of which we have three games in six days coming up with three top teams, including Union.

What did we learn?

1) This team doesn't quit.
2) Mike Bergin's absence is still missed.
3) Union's a versatile team.

Jerry D'Amigo will not be available for any of those games due to an MCL injury suffered in the Union game, which, quite honestly, seems like the biggest problem - the People's Line has been very effective since its assembly. But I have faith. If Union can find a way to score five goals in a game in which they were missing their top four scorers (regardless of how poorly RPI played in the first period), we can find a way to do without one of our top scorers. Heck, we did it for weeks with Helfrich.

The games that matter are coming back soon. Don't lose your bowels yet.
