In the first game, Team Lia hit the ground running, scoring 3 quick goals before Team Dirka knew what hit them. A blowout in the making?…or not. Team Dirka’s defense settled down and as time ran down in the period scored 1, then another and finally a 3rd goal was scored to tie the game. But…Team Lia quickly retaliated and the period ended with the Lias up by one – 4-3. In the 2nd Team Dirka scored to tie it up again but Team Lia again pulled ahead by 1. Again, Team Dirka clawed back and tied the score and quickly added another to pull ahead by one, exiting the 2nd period up 6-5. But the momentum changed again in the 3rd, Team Lia scored and then added 2 more while Shawn kept Team Dirka from adding any more markers. Final score Team Lia 8 – Team Dirka 6.
Second game had roster issues …again. As usual Team Blair was seriously undermanned – only 6 runners so they were able to convince the goalies to switch from their assigned teams and Big Matt V was convinced to play for them in the late game. Obviously none of these remedies were needed as Team Blair, with Matt V leading the way, scored early and often – up by 5 at the end of the first period. Team Jacquie scored a couple of goals to rattle Justin in the 2nd and added a couple more in the 3rd but, it was too little, too late as Team Blair cruised to an easy 11 – 4 victory.
A couple of roster changes, moved John Doxtator and added Sean Elmer to Team Jacquie as of next week’s game.
