Reminder: No games on March 13th, 2019 – Enjoy March break!
Back in the regular gym after a Saturday showdown in Vanier. We saw four games, and all were fairly close except for the last game which was a seven-goal difference. The game of the night was the first one, a 6-5 battle that was very entertaining.
With five or less games left in the season, it is still hard to predict this year’s champion. Every team has some intriguing pieces. The bottom team can surprise with all the talent on the floor and the top team loss bad when they got beat so time will tell!
Ladies first and Sophie Filion was tops as she set up THREE goals in a huge win against her other half. Selecting the top male was easy as Dan Bergeron scored FIVE times and set up FOUR more for NINE points. In nets, Carlos De Marinis was the top tender as he faced 40 shots and stopped them all but 3!
No Pucks Given vs Bab Boys 2
Pylon Express … First up on this cold evening before March Break, we had No Pucks Given playing against Bab Boys 2. Everyone seemed frozen, as it was a slow start. It took almost 5 minutes for a goal in spare Heidi Levine’s shot would sneak through the goalie’s pads. A minute later, spare Mat Latour would put NPG on the board as he went five hole in front. Next up, we saw Marie-France Richard bang in a rebound and right behind her was Tim Squires with a shot from his own end. Before the end of the first half, Mat would make it 4-1 for NPG as he managed to put it by the D in a battle in front. The second period was even slower as over 10 minutes went by before a goal. It would be spare Justin Larose who would go high blocker on the run to put BB2 within 2. Sebastien Lalonde was right behind him though with a low shot from the point as NPG regained their 3-goal lead. Both teams would add one each within the span of a minute. NPG would then take a penalty, giving BB2 the opportunity to come back. Chris Tessier would bang one in on the man advantage, putting them back within 2. He would score again, less than a minute later, with a shot from the point. NPG would hold them off in the last minute and a half as they win 6-5.
The Mighty Pucks vs Lackadaisical
Lacking Zest… Game 2 of the evening saw The Mighty Pucks and Lackadaisical battling for the W. Wahid Sidiqi would start things off with a nice backdoor goal about 8 minutes in. Mark Haulena would eventually do the same for his team as we sat at 1-1 with 6 minutes left in the 1st half. He would strike again a few minutes later, this time as he dangles the goalie, alone inn front. Markus Pugi was right behind him with a spin and shoot in front as we were now tied at 2. It was a low scoring first period as that was how we went to break with a 2-2 score and shots 20-15 for LACK. The goalies stood tall for the first half of the second period as the goals continued to be at a premium. With just over 12 minutes to play Tom Slade put LACK up by 1 as he scored on a breakaway going shelf. With just under 3 minutes to go MP would make a late push as Sidiqi scored on a floater that went off the goalie and just rolled in. It looked like we were headed to shootout but MP had other plans. With 50 seconds left Kelly Brant scored on a back door feed to put them up by 1. With 5 seconds left Pugi would put the game away as he scored into the empty net. MP won a thriller by a score of 5-3.
Old School vs Misfits
Mis-Matched… Our third game of the night saw Old School who have had a bit of skid lately taking on Misfits who have had a tough go of it all season. Just 30 seconds in and OLD struck as Kiyomi Takahara buried a back door tap in. MF quickly responded a couple minutes later as Gerry Bedard scored with a redirect in front of the net. They would take the lead shortly after that as Mat Latour buried a rebound in the crease. That gave a spark to OLD as especially Dan Bergeron as he scored 3 straight goals to give his team a 2 goal edge. He would let others score goals too as Kiyomi Takahara would bury a rebound in front. 20 seconds later, Mike Boileau would blast one in from half, trying to give his team some hope. But, before the end of the period, Dan would crush that glimmer with his 4th of the night with a backwall rebound as the first period ends 6-3 for OLD. They wouldn’t let up in the second half as Steve Pineo would send a snap shot in the low corner, Dan would bury a one timer and one of the spares would take a shot from the slot on a power play that caught the goalie sleeping. With a little over 6 minutes left to play, MIS would rally the troops and pot a few more. We saw Mat with a shot from the slot, Gerry with a backdoor one timer and another for Mat as he tapped it in. Unfortunately, time wasn’t on their side as they couldn’t get any closer. OLD wins 9-6.
Dicks with Chicks vs Santana
Shutting Down the Offense… The final game of the night had Dicks with Chicks playing against Santana as one team forgot to show up to play. SAN was off to a good start, as Shawn Chaine would tap in a nice pass in front on the side of the net. Both teams had good chances, but neither team would capitalize on them for a while. About 8 minutes later, spare Steve Pineo would take a big shot from the point, going in and out so fast, we had to go to the cameras to make sure it was in. Shawn would get his 2nd, going top corner, before Justin Larose would put DWC on the board with a slapper from the point. Both teams would add one each in Jeff Murphy and Kiel Graham as the 1st half ends at 4-2 for SANT. Early on, Jeff would blast one in from half to keep things going for SANT. Next up, we saw Shawn sent on a breakaway by the goalie. Mike Zaborski would get in on the action with a wrap around goal and, a minute later, Steve would outplay the goalie in front. DWC would pull their goalie early, with a little less than 5 minutes left to play, but that would backfire as Shawn would not miss the empty net for his 4th of the night. With a minute left in the game, Sophie Berthiaume would bury a rebound, but that wouldn’t be enough. Mike gets an empty netter to push the knife further in. SANT get a much-needed break as DWC’s big guns were misfiring tonight. They win 10-3.
