The hardest part, he said, might be staying focused during what feels like the longest week of the season.
“You want to keep it on a slow boil and then be peaking toward the end of the week,” Weiler said. “You want to make sure you get a good skate in every day so they don’t get rusty. But you want to keep it fun, too, so the girls stay locked in.”
Staying locked in will be key against a Clippers’ squad averaging nearly four goals per game.
Junior forward Alexa Scribner (21 goals, 15 assists) and sophomore forward Rachel Moore (17 goals, 15 assists) pace Falmouth offensively, but Weiler went out of his way to acknowledge sophomore goaltender Madison Scavotto .
Scavotto’s .950 save percentage and 1.23 goals-against average rival those of her counterpart, Duxbury junior Rachel Myette (.957 save percentage, .81 GAA).
“Their goaltender is strong, so we want to make sure we get a lot of shots on her, and move the puck well,” Weiler said. “A fast start is going to be important, to get a lead. I just want them to be ready to go and have that high-energy that they’ve had all year long and just be confident in their ability.”
