Navy Vets Riding A Five-Game Win Streak Ahead Of Paris Matchup

The Woodstock Navy Vets are in the midst of a five-game win streak as they host Paris tonight.

WOODSTOCK - The Woodstock Navy Vets are in the middle of a five-game win streak.

Their most recent victory came last weekend over Paris, winning 4-1.

Head coach Darren Young says the morale among the players has been really good.

"Guys are stepping up, guys are kind of in their role and they're doing their jobs. So we're getting a lot more secondary and five-on-five scoring and that's really what's been attributed to our success because our powerplay has been good all year, but we were lacking that scoring five-on-five and a little bit of depth scoring and it's coming now."

Their recent stretch has not seen them taste defeat since October 12th and they now sit in second place of the South Doherty Division.

Woodstock's last loss came against Norwich where they fell to the Merchants 5-3.

Since the loss, they've picked up wins over teams like Wellesley, Ayr and New Hamburg.

Young says in order to maintain their success, players are going to have to keep doing their job.

"It's very encouraging to see especially because it's been against good teams. We knew coming in we had talked about it, coming into this stretch we have, I think it's 14 games that are pretty tough on our schedule, so we knew coming that we were going to have to play good hockey and we're very encouraged with the way guys are playing."

He adds a few of their young players are starting to adjust to the league and starting to thrive, which he says is encouraging. 

Young says he expects a competitive matchup against Paris tonight.

The puck drops in Woodstock at 7:45 pm.
