Our first coed league of 2019 kicked off and it did not disappoint as we saw three awesome games that were all decided by two goals or less! The second game was a goalie’s nightmare as 19 goals were scored and a total of 94 shots on net were recorded while the third game was a defensive battle with just four goals and less then fifty total shots.
It’s a good mix of teams and should make for a very entertaining season!
On this night, we start with the tender as Justin Labrecque was tops in GAA and Save % making 23 of 26 saves. Litt St-Jean was the top lady as she found the back of the net twice and set up another in her game. Moving to the men, both Darren Asirvathamand Mark Haulena share the love picking up five points each in their effort.
