HS Hockey: Century pairing scorching offense with steady defense

National Sports

Century hockey is in scintillating form after a dominant 10-0 win up in Williston.

Offense has sparkled so far, with Century scoring at least four goals in 10 of their games.

It’s easy to be swept up in the offense, but head coach Troy Olson said the team also focuses on putting forth a strong defensive effort.

“I think the defense has been pretty good. It hasn’t been great, but it’s been pretty good, whereas the offensive side of things, we’ve been finding the back of the net quite a bit,” Olson said. “It’s kind of difficult to preach defense when you’re scoring that many goals to be honest with you, but we’ve been hammering at them quite a bit.” 

The Patriots have four shutouts through their first 12 games. The team next plays Tuesday at Minot.
