AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League two weeks into the season

Through the first two weeks of the AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League season. It's still early, but were already getting an idea of what the league will be like this season. The Gold Tier has a pair of teams in Southlake Carroll and Plano Senior who maybe est. themselves as the pacesetters this season as the Dragons have 2 of their dynamic trio players from last year that helped their dynamic offense last year as Cossu and Morrow are back and already have 7 points between them this season.

All around them it looks like they could be the team to beat again this season as the Dragons have outscored their first 2 opponents Coppell and Allen 12-1. Even though it would so like a shock that Coppell would get beat that bad, it's starting to look like it's going to be a rare down year for Coppell Hockey as they first two losses as they have been outscored 11-5.

Another team that may have a down year that's used to success is Flower Mound. One main reason is that they haven't even scored a goal yet this season. An 8-0 loss to Plano Senior showed some glaring weakness in just about every aspect of their game and I would expect them to be the bottom feeders in the league this season.

The Silver Tier being divided into 2 Divisions has FM Marcus on top of the East Division, while Keller ISD is leading the West Division as both teams have been able to take advantage of some weak competition so far. For Marcus, a pair of 5-2 wins over defending Silver Tier Champion Garland ISD & Expansion Prosper with a pair of 3rd periods to breakaway from both games.

If you look at Keller ISD, a 6-1 win over Grapevine and a 5-2 win over Mansfield ISD have taken them to the top of the West Division. Keller is looking for a rebound season where after finishing 2nd in the Silver Tier in the regular season, a huge upset against Richardson ISD caused a huge upset and after that game, it got them all the way to the Silver Tier Semifinals before losing to eventual Silver Tier Champion Garland ISD.

Here's a look at the AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey Schedule over the next two weeks as the league has reduced the schedule from 24 to 22 games for this season. Also most of the games, (especially early in the season are played on Thursday Nights). Then as we get later in the season, some games will be played Tuesdays while a few will be on the weekends.

Here's the AT&T Metroplex HS Hockey League Schedule over the next couple of weeks.
