It’s great to be back as we kick off our 2019 season with 4 games on the schedule. All games were competitive, and some teams seem to gel right off the bat! All games were decided by three or less goals and the goalies were the talk of the night as three of the four winning teams did so with five goals.
It’s a good mix of teams and should make for a very entertaining season!
On this night, we start with the tenders and we welcome back Colin Jackson who gets the love as he picked up a W by turning away 30 of the 32 shots he faced! Now to our lovely ladies as we praise Kelly Brant who picked up a hat trick as well as Kiyomi Takahara who found the net twice and added a helper. Lastly, league commissioner, Dan Bergeron gets the mention as he led all the guys scoring five times and adding a helper as well.
The Dan Bergeron’s vs No Pucks Given
Newbie Luck? … After a two-week holiday break, our winter season was off to a good start with new and old faces divided into new teams. The Dan Bergeron’s and No Pucks Given were first up to work off the extra holiday indulgences. It took a while for the first goal of the game, as both teams were a little rusty. Nicolas Hubert would strike first for NPG on his own rebound and a minute or so later, he would score again, this time shooting it from his own end. Before the end of the first half, BERG would get on the board in Jeff Jillion with a hard shot from half. After 20, it was 2-1 for NPG, shot advantage clearly on their side as well at 27-17. Early on in the second half, Nicolas would get his hatty, this time sending it top corner in close. Make that 4 goals as he batted a high pass out of the air right in front. Around the 2-minute mark, Jeff would bury a nice pass on the one-timer to put them within 2 and gaining the stop time advantage. Soon after, they would pull their goalie, hoping the extra attacker would help. That would backfire though as Nicolas would bury an empty netter to seal the deal. Nicolas would earn himself the first star of the game; 5-goals on his first night… was this guy ranked properly?! NPG takes it home with a 5-2 W.
Dicks with Chicks vs The Mighty Pucks
Easy Does It… Next up, we had some familiar combinations in Dicks with Chicks as they were taking on The Might Pucks in our second game of the night. Matt Beaton would put DWC on the scoreboard first on the goalie’s short side. Almost 10 minutes would go by again before we saw another goal. This time it would be Wes Tam of TMP, who was all alone, waiting for the pass across to bury it. Soon after, Kelly Brant wouldn’t miss her mark as she sniped it short side, to put TMP up by one. As time was expiring in the first period, Kelly would increase their lead going top cheese on the back door play. TMP was up 3-1, shots 18-12 in their favor as well. Kelly was at it again for a natural hat trick, as she shot it in from the side of the net. Next up, we saw Kiel Graham find the back of the net on a pass coming from behind the net, but Wahid Sidiqi was right behind him with another for TMP. That would do it for this game as TMP hold on for the 5-2 victory.
Lackadaisical vs Old School
Stepping Up… The next game would see Lackadaisical taking on Old School. LACK was up first in Heidi Levine with a tip in front. Mark Haulena would get the next one, a little while later, with a shot up the middle. Dan Bergeron would then put his team on the scoresheet as we saw him bat the rebound out of the air on his backhand. A couple of minutes later, Tom Slade would make it 3-1 with a shot through a screen but Lynn Fournelle was right behind him with a rebound. Before the end of the period, both teams would add one each, putting us at 3-2 going into the 2nd half. OLD would come out strong in the second period, as Kiyomi Takahara would score the equalizer within the first minute. Soon after, Dan would backhand another one in, as OLD had the lead for the first time this match. He wouldn’t stop there, getting the next two back-to-back goals keeping LACK at arms length. With a little over 5 minutes to play, Mark would cut that lead to 2, but Kiyomi would send her shot top corner in close, to regain the 3-goal lead. Although LACK would get another in Tom with a shot up the middle, OLD holds on for the W, 8-6.
Bad Boys 2 vs Misfits
A Few More Minutes… Lastly, on our first evening of the season, we saw Bad Boys 2 battling Misfits. Chris Tessier would open up the scoring for BABII as we saw score on the back door with a one timer. Skipping ahead to under 10 minutes in the period and BABII added another as Alex Rogozynski scored from his owned. 20 seconds later, they scored again, this time JF Parent found the back of the net going five-hole. BABII would add one more before the half as Jason Francis scored while coming out from behind the net. That would be it for the period as BABII were in complete control up 4-0. The pace would slow down in the second as we had a long goal-scoring drought. After 11 minutes of the period, whisked away BABII pushed their lead even further as Mel St George scored after a scramble in front finding the loose ball rebound. With the game essentially over, MF would finally get on the score sheet with 5 minutes left to play as Jocelyn Mitchell scored top corner on a back door play. A minute later, they potted another as Mat Latour scored off a back door one timer to give his team a sliver of hope. MF would make respectable as they potted one more with their goalie pulled but it would be too little too late as they waited too long to turn it on. They would fall just short losing by a score of 5-3.
