Going undefeated in any sport at any level is a tall order, and that’s exactly what Canton High School’s hockey team has done through the regular season and the first tournament game.
The Bulldogs are 21-0-1 entering Saturday’s Division 2 South Quarterfinal game against Oliver Ames.
"It’s incredibly hard to have that record at any level," said Canton coach Brian Shuman. "It’s hard to remain unbeaten for a long time. It’s a testament to the focus of our guys. Our leadership is driven. They realize we have a bull's-eye on our back each game. We’ve just had the approach to take it one shift and one game at a time."
Simply put, Canton was dominant through its first 22 games of the season. Brian Shuman’s team has averaged just a hair under five goals per game while allowing less than a goal per game.
