Su Valley Hockey Takes Home Ice Jan. 15
By John R. Moses
ALASKA PIONEER PRESS
TALKEETNA — Coach Jack MacDonald and the Su Valley Hockey Team are looking
forward to taking the home ice against Monroe Catholic High School of Fairbanks when the
Rams play them at the Talkeetna rink Jan. 15 & 16.
The Rams are 2-6 this season, an improvement over last year’s one-win season and a sign of
the team’s development. MacDonald said he expects more wins, as the games have been
close, one recent match a loss of 3-2 in overtime.
The team was also missing Corey Ambrose, a strong player who couldn’t go on the recent
Delta Junction-Tok odyssey.
Monroe is the only team the Rams beat last season, and MacDonald said he hears that team
has improved. MacDonald hopes to host Monroe athletes at the new Su Valley campus.
Talkeetna’s league is among the last to play outdoors, and MacDonald recently cautioned his
team to “absorb the moment, look around, take it all in,” even if the “moment” is a long, 0-to-
5-degree bus trip to Tok.
