Playoff Game #2
Posted by: Rick Ruble on Mon Mar 20th 2017 12:28pm
A very emotional game for our team this morning. We had a bit of a slow start and couldn't seem to get our game going until the second period. The goal scoring just wasn't there, and neither were the calls. But we move on to Game #3.
We now need some help from the Franklin team if they beat Pembroke, and when we beat Coastal, that would make us tied by points with the Franklin team. It should then go to a goals against situation, currently Franklin has 6 GA, and we have 5.
This will determine if we play in Hobomock April 1st @ 3:10 for the Consolation Championship, or 4:20 for the Championship.

A terrific game all around. Down 2-0 to come back. Pulling the goalie with one minute left, Franklin could not get possession after that. And we scored beating the buzzer.
Let's keep up the great work.

And that is a wrap for the regular season.
We have come along way since the first game. During the regular season we worked our way to the near the top of competitive teams. The play making and defense observed today is a tribute to your hard work all season long. Jake's first goal of the morning was due to his crashing the net following a nice save off of Nate's initial shot. Nate and Jake combined for the second goal as well. The third goal was due to a great individual effort by Haden getting the puck down low. Aarya then picked up the puck and passed it in front of the net to Jack, who buried the goal. Tick Tack ... Goal.
Game winning goal by Jake with his second, and a necessary insurance goal by Hayden.
Awesome job clogging up the middle by our D (Bobby, Max, Justin and Keegan).
These are all the lessons they were given by the coaches and the team executed them very well.
We are on to the Playoffs. Lets GOOOOOO.

Epic Comeback Win!!!
Coastal Stars were able to get the better if us during the first period netting 3 goals going into the second. The first two of our goals cane with tenacious work by Francesca and Hayden, and with a shot from the blue line by Sean was able to find it's way to the back of their net, tying the game up 3-3. The Green teamers were able to get another goal by us, netting one over Georges shoulder.
We then shut the door on any good opportunities for Coastal.
Hayden, in the corner, got the puck to the front of the net where Sean was waiting with a one timer, Tying the score once again. A little while later Nate broke free from the pack for a nice goal getting us the lead for good. Hayden was able to skate the full length of the ice weaving in between the Stars, and potting the final goal.
The pats must have been inspired by your play as they had a bit of a comeback later on that night.

Well the unbeaten streak ended at 14 games. Not a bad feat, we have come far in the season, learning positional play, better skating, passing and defending our net.
Looks like Obie-Won changed his face mask and Canton's luck. Although I am still unsure as to how a checking penalty can occur when we are carrying the puck with both hands on the stick, but that is how it goes sometimes.
Let's start a new streak on Sunday.
