SEPTEMBER 08, 2017 SUMMER LEAGUE TOURNAMENT GAME # 2
After a win in game # 1 Nissan faced the top seeded team (The A-Team) in the tournament championship game.
Goalie Matt Tushaus for Nissan again had a strong game and kept Team A from putting it out of reach. Nissan had some chances to get even but could not connect. Goalie Benda for Team A played well and Team A is hard to beat considering their over-all speed and passing attack. Nissan got close but Team A added an Empty Net goal and secured a 5 - 2 win to take Summer League Top Honors for 2017.
Stars for Nissan: * Tushaus (Goaltending) / ** Szkodzinski ( 1 goal, 1 assist) / *** Ness ( 1 goal.)
Additional Nissan Scoring: Michaelson (1 assist.)
After an up and down Summer League season good to finish with a strong showing in the mini-tournament.
Good effort. Fun season. See everyone out at the rink again in the future.

AUGUST 27, 2017
Oh the poor damned Nissan Pelicans closed out the Cornerstone Summer Hockey League regular schedule with another loss but the crew put up a good fight. This time skating with 3 of their top 4 players helped NISSAN but the A-Team was lead by Minnesota Mike O "The Flash" and his team of rocket men. Goalie Gordon for Nissan made several big saves but Team A was relentlessly on the attack. One tough luck goal came on a fluttering puck that floated up over Gordon's shoulder and dropped in. Team A created breaks for themselves with their hard skating.
Final Team A 10 Nissan 6.
Stars for Nissan: * Gordon (Goaltending) / ** Szkodzinski ( 2 goals, 2 assists) / *** Michaelson (2 goals, 1 assist.)
Additional Nissan scoring: Scheer (1 goal); Mark Herzog ( 1 goal); Price (2 assists); Ness (2 assists.)

AUGUST 13, 2017
The Pelicans were hoping to get another game in the win column but came up with a short roster again. Team D also had a short roster but managed to recruit a few all-star subs to skate the game. The Pelicans were pleased to be able to get "The Commissioner" - "The Rickmeister" - " "The V-Man" Vanderleest" to skate as a sub. This was an advantage as "The Comish" had a first hand look at Team D's flagrant rules violations. The game is on appeal.
Aside from that the Pelicans faced another team that for this game was extremely speedy and skilled and thus the Pelicans took another one on the chin. Final score Team D 12 - Pelicans 5.
Stars for the Pelicans: *Price (2 goals, 1 assist) / ** Szkodzinski (1 goal, 1 assist) / *** Picha ( 1 goal.)
Additional Pelicans Scoring: Litzsinger (1 goal) ; Morgan Herzog (2 assists) ; Scheer (1 assist); Ness (1 assist); Vanderleest (1 assist.) Szkodzinski scored on a strong rush to the net with a top shelf rocket shot. Later a hard shot on net from Szkodzinski was deflected in by Picha for a goal. Price let fly a long shot that eluded the Team D goalie and his 2nd goal was on a snappy backhand shot from the side of the net.
