The Saturday League
had round one of the playoffs, with two games going into sudden
9am started the day off with a great game. The
Green Jackets blew a late 7-6 lead and needed a goal from
McGovern with 12 seconds left to tie it at 8-8. In OT it only
took Greg Wood about 15 seconds to win it for the Muck Dogs as
10am was a Wildcard Game between the Barons
and the Rubber Ducks. Jim Celeste subbed in for Grasso and
picked up the shutout, a 9-0 win. Each team actually had 8
11am and the Spikes were waiting for the
10am winner. They made short work of the Ducks in a 14-6 nail
biter. All the hemming and hawing over Ducks players didn't
matter after all.
12noon was another Wild Card Game as
the Flying Squirrels took on the Snappers. Fowler subbed for
Rizzo and score 5 of the 6 FS goals as they eeked out a 6-5 win.
1pm and the Squirrels took on the Jammers. With Caeren
subbing for Rizzo this time, the black jerseyed team never had a
chance. Jammers win big 10-5.
2pm yes a rare 2pm game,
but it was a good one. The Pelicans and Diggers needed OT at the
end of the day to decide it. Liam scored the game winner in OT,
but it was called back when Dave Messuri was in the crease.
Luckily a few minutes later he scored again. 5-4 Pelicans.
Scored two OT goals for the Pelicans in the
Tuesday night had tight games once
again, for the teams that showed up.
7pm was a nail biter
between ABG and the Melting Zukes aka The Fours. A goal with 27
seconds left by Geoff Collins salted away the 10-8 ABG win.
Burdick had a goal.
8pm went down to the wire as Grand
Canal and Hong Kong went at it. GC had all 8 players, and that's
been good for atleast a point. On this night it was 2 pts as two
goals from and injured Rob Richards was enough for the 4-3 GC
9pm was a wild west shootout that ended with an
incident that got two players suspended for four games. Sully's
Tap takes it over a depleted Harp team, 11-9. To Harp's credit,
they came back and kept it close in what was a blowout on paper.
10pm and we almost had a forfeit. The Green Dragon had the
minimum 3 players show up as six players bailed out. Black Rose
was more than happy to deliver a huge 11-5 loss to the Dragon
and their subs.
