The Frisco Ice Hockey Association fell to Plano West in the state championship on Tuesday night at the Dr. Pepper arena.

“The atmosphere was very different as we have never been in a situation like last night,” head coach Ryan Mclean said. “Playing one period of hockey in a game to decide the State Champions. Nobody really knew what to expect, but my boys showed up and competed the best they could.”

Losing 2-1, the teams regular season got cut short, a tough loss after such a big season last year.

“It was upsetting to see the look on some of my seniors face after the loss,” Mclean said. “Coming off of a National Championship last year everyone was out to beat us and played at a higher level against us as everyone in any sport wants to take out her defending champions.”

The boys are ready to keep playing in hopes of getting another bid to nationals after the league playoffs.

“We just have to put this one behind us and focus on what’s ahead,” junior Cole Enloe said. “We are still in a good position to finish in first place for the regular season, so that’s going to be our main focus heading into the city championships.”
