After knee surgery and an extensive rehabilition program in the city of Kandor among his fellow Kryptonians, Superman, Ed Pokryfky, has returned to North Coast. Superman appeared fully recovered from his torn ACL, handling the puck well, turning away breakaways and playing an all around strong game in net. His only two goals against were a screened goal and a deflection off a North Coast player. Both teammates and fans were thrilled to have the long time North Coast man of steel back anchoring the traditionally stingy Coastie defense.
The high energy game against the Barracuda ended in a 2-2 tie. Mucho Grande, Dave Grand, scored first in a net front scrum with assists to Hammer, Gregg Hammerman, and Woody, Scott Wood. Woody and Mucho Grande linked up again when Mucho Grande skated the puck deep into the Cuda zone and made a perfect pass to Woody crashing the back side of the net for a pretty backhand goal.

For the second game in a row, The Rapper, Tim Allen, scored both North Coast's first and game winning goals and was named Mighty Good Player of the Game.
Bell's Beer scored first but the Men In Black answered with four straight goals en route to a 5-2 win. The Rapper evened the game at 1-1 on a rebound of a shot from Hammer, Gregg Hammerman. Hugs, Hugo Braun, also earned an assist on the goal. The Big Fella, Kurt Riegger scored next with assists to Sweeps, Mike Braun, and LaxBro, Darren Millman. The Rapper followed up with the eventual game winner on perhaps the best team play of the evening. The Coasties executed a perfect breakout from their own end and crisp passing allowed every North Coast player to touch the puck leading to a shot from The Big Fella, Kurt Riegger. The Rapper buried the rebound and A-Train, Lindsay Aspegren earned the second assist. The Coasties then scored a short-handed goal when Havi, Dave Haviland, skated the puck deep into the Beer Men's zone and passed to a net crashing Mucho Grande, Dave Grand, for the score. LaxBro capped off the scoring with an unassisted goal in the third period.
Fran Weissinger played well in goal and kept the puck moving smoothly, allowing North Coast to dominate puck possession.

The Coasties got their first win of the young season against the Yaks on Sunday night. The Rapper, Tim Allen, was named Mighty Good Player of the Game for scoring both the first goal of the game and the eventual game winner.
The Rapper opened the scoring just over a minute into the game with a beautiful backhand finish on a partial breakaway. Mucho Grande, Dave Grand, earned an assist for the pass that sprung the Rapper. The Big Fella, Kurt Riegger, put the Men In Black up by two with a deft redirection in front of the net of a shot by The Professor, Charles Conrad. LaxBro, Darren Millman, also earned an assist on the goal. Following a Yaks score early in the second period, Hammer, Gregg Hammerman, returned the Coasties' lead to two by roofing a rebound of his own shot, with LaxBro earning his second assist of the night. After the Yaks had again closed the lead to one, The Rapper scored the game winner with an assist to P-Mac, Paul McCreadie. The Yaks made it exciting by scoring a power play goal with a minute left in the game and pulling their goalie for the remainder of the game, but North Coast hung on for the 4-3 win.
Substitute goalie Kyle Brohl of Tenacious D played solidly and made several key saves in his debut for the Men In Black.

Like the sailboat, North Coast wallows through the summer in a dream-like fog. However, the fog hides a new development: the potential aquisition of a new team website. Only time will tell if the team can emerge from the fog of ancient history associated with the previous pages.
