12 seemed to be the number last night – at least for one of the goalies. In the first game lead changed hands for the first 2 periods, neither team getting ahead by more than 1 goal. In the 3rd period Team Juniors were able to pull ahead a bit and held off Team Russ for a hard fought win – Team Juniors 12 – Team Russ 9. Couple of players got a bit testy at the end – GUYS! this is for fun, scouts and contract negotiators were only here for the second game last night.
In the 2nd game, there was no contest at all. Justin stood on his head the few times Team Joe was able to test him and Team Blair must be in contract negotiations or have half season performance bonus calculations coming up because they were pushing hard right to the end to score that 12th goal with less than a minute to go. Final score Team Blair 12 – Team Joe 2.
Next week, July 2, 2014 is Week #10.
