Tripp Crushed By Back To Back Defeats
Written by RockSport on March 26, 2018
Braehead Clan coach John Tripp was left devastated as his side blew their chances to reach the Elite League play-offs.
Clan’s losses to Nottingham Panthers and Guildford Flames, coupled with a victory for Coventry Blaze against Manchester Storm, sent Blaze through to next week’s quarter finals.
And as it was confirmed that Fife Flyers will be the only Scottish club to fly the flag in the post season, Tripp was left to wonder what might have been.
“It’s a tough feeling to take, the fact we haven’t been able to make it through,” he said. “I’m not going to sugar coat it. It’s not fun at all.
“This feeling will last a long time and we lost a lot of big games throughout the season. It’s the kind of feeling that will sit in your stomach for a while.”
