What a day in the gym! We had some last-minute cancellations so a big thank you to both Shawn and Jonathan for helping out on the day and we saw the only undefeated team lose a game!
The scores on the day were decent but we did see one blowout and only had one one-goal game.
Friendly reminder to all that the gym is closed for the next two weeks due to March Break. Enjoy the time away and get ready to roll again on March 29th, 2020!
Let’s kick things off in the crease where Tim Kreuk played a great game facing 24 shots and only allowing one goal. Although we had a few ladies with three points, we selected Amelie Charron who recorded a HAT TRICK. Dylan Cundell was the top male player scoring a HAT TRICK and setting up THREE goals.
Electric Mayhem vs Huskies
Game one of the day was a C Div showdown of the two top teams. EM would be down a few regulars in this one, but the show must go on. HSK were the last team to beat EM way back in week 2, they were looking to go 2-0 against the C Div’s top team. HSK with a win could move into 1st in the C. Onto the game action. We start this one with HSK Ellen Wardroper coming down the wing and attempting to pass cross crease only to be intercepted and tipped top cheese by Jonathan Levy of EM for a catastrophic error and giving HK the 1-0 lead. Justin Larose would get that one back for EM 4 min later as he would be the recipient of HK’s own giveaway and claps it bar down and we end the half tied at 1, 19-14 in favour of HK. We start the 2nd half with another Larose goal, this time with a nice pass from Goalie Marty Leury and some dirty dangles to beat the keeper. Leury would continue to pad stats with several outstanding saves as EM was just breaking down defensively with wave after wave of HK pressure. Larose would come down the wing beat a defender and make a sweet cross crease pass to Levy for a tap in, this time scoring in the right net for a 3-1 EM lead. Wardroper would finally answer for HK as she made a very nice tip off a shot and past Leury, closing the gap to 3-2 for EM. In the closing minutes, despite significant HK pressure, Danie Louisseize would score short side from a nice pass from Isabelle Payer and that’s how this game would end 4-2 for EM and shots 46-31 for HK. Shout out to Marty Leury who came in to help EM and made an outstanding 44 saves in helping them keep their place atop the C division Standings.
The Price is Right vs Muskies
Game #2 was a B Division Clash. TPIR are looking to get 2 games above .500 while MSK look to get a few points up from the last place DOH in the B division basement. Amanda Larch made sure her team got off to a good start, her first goal of the season was a tap in all alone in front of the net. MSK picked up the pace and carried most of the play. Tim Kreuk was solid and kept his team up 1-0. Marco Crapigna made it 2-0 when he picked off a pass and wristed home his 11th of the season. MSK made it 3 in a row when Mathieu Trepanier scored on a turnaround backhander. Natasha Jamieson cut into the lead for TPIR tipping in a shot in front of the net. From there it was all MSK Philip Moorcroft scored back to back goals to make 5-1 heading into the half. In the 2nd the MSK kept the scoring coming. Mathieu Trepanier scored on a sick tip in front. Philip Moorcroft scored his hat trick goal sniping low corner. Mathieu Trepanier scored his hat trick goal to make it 8-1, Marco Crapigna scored 3 straight goals for MSK and iced this game for the 11-1 mercy win with 2 minutes to play.
No Regretzkies vs Huskies
HSK are playing game #2 of their double header. They were facing NRG who were looking to pick up win #3 of the season. NRG won the only meeting between this season in week #1 with a 7-6 score. Could they do it again? The goalies were the stars for the first 13:00 of the game. NRG broke the scoreless tie with 7 minutes to go. Jake Hardwick hammered home slapper from the high slot. The goalies locked it backed down but the HSK got one late, Andrew Anderson wired one home to make 1-1 heading into the half. The 2nd was the same as the first the goalies were stealing the show. The game remained tied for the first 8 minutes of the 2nd. Guillaume Auger found the back of the net and put HSK up for the first time in the game. The lead stood up for 3 minutes until veteran sniper, Colin Kargus scored on a turnaround wrister. Ryan Stasiuk scored a sick goal with 5 minutes left he knocked it out of mid air then tapped in mid air to give his team the lead. HSK would pull their goalie with a minute to go but NRG would score an empty netter to go up 4-2. A delay in the start of the score clock gave HSK some extra time and they used it. Guillaume Auger netted his 2nd of the night to make it 4-3 with 8 seconds left. NRG would win the faceoff and effectively run out the clock. NRG take it 4-3.
Soft Dump in the Corner vs The Commandos
The first A Division of the day would feature the 5th place SDITC taking on the 6th place TC. SDITC are looking to snap a two-game losing skid, TC are looking for win #3 on the season, a win today could vault them into 4th place in the “A”. Onto the game action. SDITC brought out some big shooters and they played a big part in this game. SDITC new recruits Dylan Cundell and Dave McCloskey combined for 7 points in this one. Dylan Cundell scored 15 seconds into the game, showing off the slick hands and then rooking a shot top cheese. Three minutes later Cundell made it 2-0. Gab Grimard cut into that 2-0 lead a minute later for TC. As if playing Cundell wasn’t tough enough, he was switching off with Zack Rheaume, who scored a pretty sick goal deking out the d man then head faking the goalie and going top cheese with a sick back hand shot. Amelie Charron scored her first of the game after Cundell deked out some players and set her up for a cross floor one timer. Zack Rheaume jumped on the floor and set up Amelie for a similar goal with an equally sick deke and pass across. SDIC opened a 5-1 with 7:25 to go in the first. TC would get one back with 3 minutes to go in the half. Justin Philion bulged twine to make it 5-2. A minute later, long time SDITC player Kevin Maloney put his team up 6-2 heading into the half. In the 2nd the scoring slowed down as the goalies picked up their games. Gab Grimard made it 6-3, 8 minutes into the 2nd he fired home a bullet one timer from half. Four minutes later Carole-Anne Lacasse scored five-hole from a rebound to make it 6-4. Cundell would snipe high blocker side to make it 7-4 with 5 minutes left in the game. Alexa Luinstra scored her first of the season to make it 8-4. Amelie Charron capped off the scoring with her hat trick goal with 1:15 to go. SDIC take this one with ease with a 9-4 score.
Les Castels vs Dirty Birds
Back to back “A” games… LC look to win two straight, for the first time this season. They would be in tough taking on the 1st place DB who have won 6 straight and started off their streak with a 6-3 win over LC. DB got off to a great start thanks to their top player Claude Blondeau. He wired home a shot from half to take the early lead. LC answered a minute later, David Brunet sniped one from a tight angle to tie it up. Claude Blondeau scored a nasty goal; it very well could be the goal of the year. He juggled the ball twice midair before hitting it mid air to go top shelf. DB held the lead for 4 minutes until Kevin Marleau tied it up. LC took over the game and dominated in zone time and in shots. LC were out shooting DB 20-5. LC scored on their 22nd shot of the game, Pascale Frechette popped one five-hole on a scrambled play to put LC up 3-2 going to the half. The 2nd half was a great display of goaltending, as Paquette was being lit up, but he stopped everything for the first 14 minutes of the half. LC went to the power play and Kevin Marleau made it count. His shot trickled in five hole and put his team up 4-2 with 6:48 to pay. LC continued to outrun and control the zone play against the talented DB team. DB would call a time out with 2:54 to plan out their attempted comeback, Kevin Marleau had different plans and scored with 2:00 left to get the hat trick but more importantly put his team up 5-2 and run the clock. DB brough the pressure and pulled their goalie, Claude Blondeau would snipe one by Gaumond with 0:34 left to give him the hat trick and stop the clock. LC bent late but didn’t break and hold on to take it 5-3 over the 1st place DB.
Suds Buds and Windmills vs Maybe Next Year
From the “A” to “C” for our next game. MNY have had a tough year and are looking for win #1 of the season; they were taking on SB&W who sit 4th in the division. SB&W could move into 3rd with a win, Onto the action now. Closer than expected? We started this game off with a few faces in different places as Dylan “Cundellingus” Cundell suited up in nets for Maybe Next Year (MNY). The first half only had one goal late as Jake Miron would score between Cundell’s five hole to give SBW the 1-0 lead at half with shots an outrageous 22-6 for SBW. Cundell would continue his stellar goalie play keeping MNY in the game as they have not won all year with several outstanding saves including a between the legs attempt from SBW’s A-A-ron Gregoire. Finally, the red light goes on for MNY in the 2nd half as Ritcho “Chewie” Chu would scoop his own rebound and backhand it past a shell-shocked Riel Ouimet to tie this game at 1. SBW continued their relentless pressure bringing wave after wave of bodies and shots at Cundell, even having Cundell making an absolute unreal sprawling save with the glove hand off a shot from Aaron Gregoire. But as the pressure mounted midway through the 2nd half and you could see Cundell getting tired (He had played earlier in the day) he gives the ball away for a catastrophic gaffe right to Captain Eric Delisle, who deposited the ball into the empty cage giving SBW the 2-1 lead. Gregoire would finally beat Cundell from the half wall going bottom corner. Kelly Hall would finish up the trio of goals for SBW in the half as she made a gorgeous tip out of mid air, through Cundell’s five hole and proceeded to dance in his crease (I think there was some side betting going on there haha). Even with the scorekeeper giving Cundell his player stick, to try and spark a stale MNY offensive attack, it was not enough to overcome the persistent SBW players who threw everything at him including the kitchen sink and only managed 4 goals. This game would finish 4-1 for SBW with shots an unreal 51-16 for SBW and Dylan Cundell keeping MNY in it with 47 saves.
Vandelay Industries vs Gars et Gals
C Division showdown in game #7 today. VI sit 2 points back of their opponent today. GG come in on a 2-game winning streak, VI come in losing 4 straight, but did win the only meeting with GG this season by a 9-5 score. GG would open the scoring not 1 min in as Mike “Ozzie” Osbaldeston would be sent in alone and put some dirty dangles on the goalie finishing five-hole for the 1-0 lead. Guillaume Auger would get in on the action a min later with a cross crease backdoor tap in, 2-0 GG. Halfway though the 1st, Ozzie was at it again with a back hand low corner. Auger would get his 2nd of the night off the defender’s foot to make it 4-0 for GG and shots surprisingly 22-10 for VI. We would open the 2nd half with Ozzie completing his hat trick, tipping a ball out of mid air 5-0 GG. VI finally get on the board with a brutal giveaway by the D man on GG right to Eric Marleau who fires it top cheese on goalie Alex Paquette. Sherry Mills would tap in a pass backdoor on a 2 on 0 to make it 6-1 for GG. VI Jayme Albert would finish off the scoring with a far side shot from the point making this final 6-2 for GG and shots 42-23 for VI.
Just The Tip vs Dekes of Hazard
Back to the B Division for game #8 of the day. JTP sit in 2nd place in the B although they are tied in points with 1st place BDB. They were taking on the 6th place DOH. We start things off with Dylan Cundell (Playing his 3rd game) with a shot from half that fooled the goalie, 1-0 JTP. A minute later Cundell was at it again, this time with a shot from the slot that went low corner. DOH gets on the board with a mad scramble in front and Sara Ruggiero squeaking it by the keeper to make it 2-1 JTP. Cundell and James Moreau work some magic with a give and go completed by Moreau on the far side. Spare Mike “Ozzie” Osbaldeston would take a giveaway by the defender and go top cheese to make it a 3-2 deficit. Kortnie Legari would make a fantastic tip off a Cundell shot to put JTP up 4-2 at the half with shots 15-11 for DOH. We start the 2nd with two quick goals from DOH. The first another mad scramble with Ruggiero putting it in. Heather Sagar would then fool the goalie with a change up shot tying this game at 4 a piece. Unfortunately, despite the momentum, the wheels began to fall off for DOH. Moreau would go back to back with 20 seconds, one off a rifle pass from Cundell and the other absolute disgusting dangles off the faceoff and a solo effort to beat the keeper and complete his hat trick for a 6-4 JTP lead. Jaqueline Gilmet would display great hand eye coordination as she tipped a back wall rebound into the net past Mark Legari. Kortnie would get her 2nd of the night with a shot from the slot. Cundell would round out the scoring and complete his Hat trick with a shot from half that went through the goalies five hole. This one ends 8-5 for JTP with shots 31-24 for DOH. JTP now temporarily sit in 1st place in the B division awaiting the results of the Bar Down Bandits game later this evening.
RONAcerous vs Balls and Dolls
A division battle for 2nd place. In game #9 the 2nd place RONA were taking on the 3rd place BD. Both teams sit with 8 points. The winner would solely take over 2nd place and this late in the season that could be a game changer. BD won the only meeting this season taking a close 4-3 win in week#2. Stephane Chenier would open the scoring with a half wall clapper to put RONA up 1-0. Marc Louisseize would get that one back going top cheese on the goalie to tie it at 1. Louisseize was at it again this time taking a bad clearing attempt by the goalie and putting it into the empty net. With 5 min to go in the half, Kiel Graham would take an absolute blast from the half wall that the goalie could not stop to make it 3-1 for BD. France Lalonde would stop the bleeding with a low wrister that squeaked through the pads of Mario Arruda. And that’s how we looked at half, 3-2 BD with shots 15-13 RONA. The 2nd half was all BD as they took complete control of the game. Shawn McClenaghan would take a back door wrister 4-2 BD. 5 min later Jennifer Williams would be the recipient of a gift from RONA. Her attempted backhand pass to Louisseize got fumbled by the D man and Goalie of RONA and ended up in the back of the net, 5-2 BD as they were getting all the bounces on this night. Dan Vezina would score back door on a gorgeous give and with Sophie Berthiaume. With 4 min remaining, Kiel Graham would get his 2nd of the night with another deadly blast from the point to give BD a 7-2 final and sole possession of 2nd place in the A division.
Jagrbombs vs Bar down Bandits
The night finishes off in the “B” division. 1st place BDB were taking on 4th place JB, two crucial points were on the line. The game started off just 1 minute in as JB’s Ryan deforest would collect his own rebound and put it in 1-0. Unfortunately, that would be the only goal JB would get as BDB controlled the entire game. First it was Tania Lacharite going top cheese. Next up, Pat Lamarche would walk in untouched and go top cheese of his own. Steven Howlett would walk in all alone and wrist it short side. It was 3-1 BDB at the half with shots 12-9 BDB. We would only have one goal in the 2nd half as Victor Howlett would be the recipient of a giveaway by the JB defender and buries it from the slot. The rest of the half was back and forth with both goalies standing tall, but in the end BDB takes this one 4-1 to remain in 1st place in the B division.
