With the regular season bling posted, its on to the serious sh^%$^%t…
The fans were on the edges of their seats as Team Blair and Team Dirka took to the floor for the start of the long awaited Toilet Bowl game. Team Dirka’s bench was solid though both Russ and Gene were on the injured reserve but watching from the sidelines (here for the beer, not for the game!). Team Blair’s bench was little on the thin side, 4 players to start, a 5th just getting changed. Close enough to start the game and let the goal scorers decide on the winner. First period – a couple of goals for each side and the teams were tied at 2. In the 2nd Team Blair scored a couple of goals early and were leading 4-2 at the goalie change. Not letting up, Team Blair scored another 3 goals while only allowing 1 against resulting in a commanding 7-3 lead at the end of 2. Team Blair was seemingly in control, but the goalie battle was still hotly contested – Gord and G2 tied at 5 GA each after 2. In the 3rd, Team Blair scored a couple more to pull away but Dirka, in a determined effort to end the season on a positive note took a pass at the top of the crease, faked one way and then came back to place a neat bounce shot through the 5-hole to score her 2nd of the year and Team Dirka’s final goal of the season. Some later discussion as to whether the rules should have been modified to “Last Goal Wins?” but this line of thought was quickly quashed. The remaining minutes ticked down and no further goals were scored – Team Blair with the 9-4 victory for the EveryWinnerHasToGetSomethingChampionOfTheLosersRound Bronze Award (Girl’s Lax Bobblehead version) –
Team Dirka has to settle with (on to?) the “Stained” SilverBedpanToiletBowlLoser award.
G2 ekes out a narrow 7-6 victory over Gord in the Toilet Bowl goalie battle. Then….on to the the real reason all the fans came to Kinsmen on a late summer Wednesday night – Team Jacquie vs. Team Lia for ALL the marbles.
