Outliers' 2020-21 Season Concludes
The Utah Outliers' season has come to an end at Nationals. The team recorded a 1-2 record in their division during the round-robin play which eliminated them from advancing to the semi-finals portion of the National tournament.
The team played hard and outplayed its opponents for much of the three games during the round-robin but ran short when it came to capitalizing on its scoring chances. Another challenge for the team was keeping pucks out of its net during the first two games. Although the Outliers never gave up more than 30 shots in any of its games, they allowed seven and five goals against in their first two games which made things challenging for the club.
Head Coach Paul Taylor had this to say about his team, "It was a disappointing ending to our season. This group really believed that they would be playing in the title game for a National Championship but it just didn't play out for us as we expected. I think it was a combination of travel and getting a bit of a shock after the first game loss in the round-robin.
Nevertheless, I am proud of how the team developed, came together, and won the Mountain Division. I thank all the players for their efforts and commitment. They were a fun group to coach and they truly worked as a team. We will now begin recruiting and rebuilding for next season and work towards chasing down a National Title."
The Outliers would like to thanks all of its fans, billets, sponsors and partners for all their efforts in making the 2020-21 season a successful one.
