    “We were a much improved team than from when we played St. Albert,” said Glenwood coach Brad Silvey.

    After giving up three goals to St. Albert in a season-opening 3-2 loss on Monday, the Rams pitched a shutout on Thursday thanks to a little better intensity and a few adjustments by Silvey.
