New look, new philosophy – look good on the floor, play good on the floor – at least that’s the theory…we’ll see how it pans out over the rest of the season. Approximately half of the new pinnies are in and have been distributed, the rest (mostly mediums) should be complete and distributed next Wednesday. Looks like there may have been a few individuals that still have their body self image stuck on what it was in minor – M size pinnies look a …bit…. form fitting. We should have enough additional L sizes to fit everyone though not with everyone’s particular requested number fetish. We will see how things sort out next week and proceed from there. Please try to bring your own pinnie each week (Bill!?) so that the numbers on the scoresheet sort of match the correct players.
In the 1st game, league leading Team Blair was against 2nd place contenders Team Juniors. 1st period started with a flurry of goals at both ends resulting in Team Blair exiting the period leading 5-4. 2nd period was mostly Team Juniors adding 4 goals and only allowing Team Blair to score 2. 3rd period was all Team Blair – Trevor shut the door on numerous Team Junior shots and Ian maintained his scoring touch with Team Blair scoring 3 goals and shutting out the Juniors completely – final score Team Blair 10 – Team Juniors 8.
The 2nd game promised to be interesting – Team Russ was missing both Russ and the JKOW due to injuries and Team Bill was bolstered by the mid season addition of free agent Brent Yost. 1st period was back and forth with lots of chances at both ends but both goalies were strong – the period ended with Team Russ up 2-1. 2nd period was more back and forth with Team Bill scoring 4 and only allowing 2, ending the period up by 1. 3rd period was hard fought with the lead changing hands a couple of times but Team Russ was able to score late on a precision seeing eye shot to seal the victory Team Russ 9 – Team Bill 8. Fun game to watch, fast and competitive.
