We didn’t get any super close games this week as the closest game was a 6-3 battle, yet the shots were 38-19. The other games ended by 7-1 and 7-3 scores. The question remains, will the Capital City Lions stay undefeated? Will Lack of talent win a game?
Let’s start with our top lady and go right to Litt St-Jean who scored three times and added an assist. Special mention goes out to Valerie Gies who scored twice and added a helper. Guy wise, we had a handful that picked up four points in their games, but we selected Sean Mullen his four points were all goals. In nets, we give the love to Marc Laroche who saw 37 shots and made 32 saves.
Original Four vs Capital City Lions
OF looked to bounce back big and deliver CCL their first lost. OF got the first real chance when Ballem picked up the ball in the slot and fired it glove side where Laroche made the save. CCL got their chance after Perron turned and fired from half, the save was made and luckily it trickled out of harm. Then seconds later CCL broke free but again the save was made. Perron opened the scoring in tight beating the goalie, 1-0. OF came back with a face win goal from Devin McManus. In the last three minutes CCL took back the lead with quick hand from Brock Murray, only to OF come right back within a minute with Ballem scoring through the five hole from down low. CCL got an early PP and it took the face off to score the PP goal, CCL up 3-2. Less than a minute later Budarick fed Perron down low far post and CCL took a 4-2 lead, four minute in. There was twelve minutes left when Ballem picked off the pass and snapped in OF’s third. CCL came back and pinned OF in their end for a couple of minutes and eventually Perron got the ball in low slot and fired it low past the goalie, CCL up two. In the last thirty seconds in the game Budarick scored the empty netter, 7-3 and still undefeated.
Buzzkill vs Lack a Talent
LAT still improving every week looked for their first W against BZ. Two minutes in Litt St-Jean was alone on the side of the net, got the pass and pick the far corner over the glove to open the scoring. A minute later BZ got the PP, the shot came from the point and Neville Carney jumps on the rebound, 2-0. On the next face off BZ won it back to Alex Rogozynski who looked to pass it across the floor got a lucky deflection off the D and past the goalie. BZ scored another two goals and finished the half up five. LAT came out the second with quicks scoring chance. Half way through the period Sean Sykes connected with Tom Jackson to break the shutout. That would be the final goal of the game and BZ took the W.
Pineapple Tackle vs 6XL
PT faced off against 6XL, both team coming off wins last week. PT opened the scoring, Sean Mullan got the ball on the wing and fired it far post past the blocker. Less than a minute later PT took a deep shot that went off the back wall, bounced back in front for Sam Marshall to bury the second goal. Mullan got his second on another rebound wide shot off the back wall. With four minutes left PT took a 4-0 lead with a rebound from Val Gies. Kyle Brown got 6XL on the board in the final minute of the period with a sweet deke in tight. 6XL kept it rolling into the second. Nicky Soucy cut through the slot and scored with the one timer. Half way through the period Connor O’Meara fired in 6XL’s third goal and cut the lead down to two. Mullan broke 6XL run after he tapped in the misplayed ball. PT held off 6XL and took the game 7-3.
