Cody Frarey; Forward - North Pole Hockey>>: "You know, we started off pretty slow in the first two periods. In between periods, coach told us we got to pick it up, making sloppy plays in the D-zone. So I think we really came together as a team there in the end. You know it's pretty exciting to get those goals, really pretty fun to having the whole crowd behind you cheering. It's a great feeling. You know, Colony is a good team, they're solid. They got big players, we just got to come out there and work. Nothing else to it. You know, it's great having those fans out there. It really gets you going when you got that whole crowd cheering for you. I really appreciate it."
