Captain's Corner - Last weekend, Cirone's wrath, road trip

Each week during the season, Metro Jets' captain Tommy Kilgore will chime in with his thoughts on what's going on with the team.

-- On beating Flint in overtime at home to open the season Friday night.
We came out hard on Friday and we showed a lot of discipline and effort, especially coming back in the third and to win it in overtime.

-- On losing 10-3 Saturday to Cleveland.
The game against Cleveland was not great. It's not that we didn't work hard, we just didn't work smart. We didn't listen to (head coach) Jason (Cirone) and the systems he wanted us to run. We tried to do our own thing.

-- On wearing the 'C' for the first time Friday night.
On Friday, it felt great wearing the 'C' out there. I felt like there was more responsibility on my hands and that I needed to step up and be a leader when we got down by a few goals, but it felt good to be the one filling that role.

-- On Cirone's temper Saturday night.
We definitely felt the wrath of Jason after the second period Saturday when we were down by five he told us what we needed to do and we just didn't. He was pretty pissed off, as were we.

-- On how to get ready to play Adrian College (exhibition) and Queen City on the road this weekend.
We need to work hard this week at practice and come out hard against Adrian and have a good week and come even closer together as a team. Queen City is not a team to take lighty and if we run the systems Jason wants, we will be fine. If not, then it might not have the outcome we want from this weekend.
