taught the Cool Cats a tough lesson.

The Cats were beaten soundly for

Repeated defensive letdowns and
slow reaction time doomed UK (12-7-1)
as Michigan State used their superior
quickness and experience to beat the
Cats to loose pucks and force quick deci-
sion-making by the Cats. who were not
always up to the challenge.

But the team and its coaches now
know that it can play with the best in
the country. and the coaches see an im-
proving program.

“We played pretty weak tonight."
Docherty said after Saturday's contest.
"This team [Michigan State] will make
you look stupid. and they did.“

Experience was a major factor in the
team’s loss. Sosnowski said.

“I think this is a young hockey team
coming together." Sosnowski said,

“This weekend showed us that we
can play with any team out there."
Docherty said.

"I talked to their head coach after
the game. and he said. ‘You guys are al-
most there.‘ and I think he‘s right."

Several players and coaches agreed
that Michigan State was the best team
UK would play all year.
