Archbishop Williams finds winning ’tude
Derackk Curtis doesn’t know exactly when, and he doesn’t know exactly how, but sometime this season, his Archbishop Williams boys’ hockey team learned a valuable lesson.
The Bishops learned how to compete.
That burning desire was on full display Saturday, when the 8-2-3 squad netted its biggest win of the season by crushing Arlington Catholic, 7-2.
Junior forwards Michael Sorenti (3 goals) and Mike Jessman (2 goals, 2 assists) led the way in what was a dramatic turnaround from the teams’ first meeting, a 1-1 tie, just two weeks prior.
It’s a relatively young group of Bishops, with nine juniors carrying most of the load, but it’s also a group that feeds off of being the underdog.
“We are not chock-full of talent,” Curtis said. “I have some good talent in there, but my kids work hard. That’s the key — that they believe in themselves and they work hard.”
