Sensity delivered on Feb. 20 in the rematch against W. Ross Macdonald School (WRMS).

“Hello and welcome to Sensity vs. WRMS round two! Hopefully we don’t do so terrible and I hope you’re as excited as I am” teased WRMS student Cerenna.

Yi-Min led with the first goal with the assist from John Jr. putting WRMS on thin ice right away.

“Go Sensity!” cheered Meaghan

Scoring another goal for Team Sensity was VP of the Deafblind program at WRMS, Lynne Osasuyi.

In the net Jordan, Steven and Daniel alternated periods.

Together the three men made 13 saves and Sensity beat WRMS 6-1.

“I thought it was great we could accommodate Steven and Jordan who played net on a chair and Dan in his wheelchair” shared Brian Shypula.

Shout-out to Cerenna for organizing the second match with Jay, and thank you to WRMS students and staff for their participation.

Sensity continues to hold bragging right after last week’s rematch.
