Key players include lead scorer Joe Aiken, who performs well under pressure; Greg Dower, who's stepped up this year into the limelight in scoring, plus Thom Pereau and Bryan Beckler who have made some critical goals and assists lately. Then there's the strong Benn Frasier, a vital element of the backfield backfield who's stepped up with aggressive play this year anchoring the defense, and the athletic, talented goalie Kristian Seeley who's been keeping opponent's scores low.
The 2010 team has been focusing on short passing control and attacking the wings with speed to catch opponents off-guard, Humiston said, adding that the players have set high expectations for themselves.
"We came into this season expecting to win all our games," Humiston said. "We want first place this year, and that's our goal."
With the considerable talent and strong programs in the Adirondack League, that goal presents a formidable challenge, he said.
"We have a team that can beat anybody on a good day, but in order to beat the 'big dogs,' we have to play better," he said. "We have our work cut out for us."
