MAY 19, 2018 Tournament Games 1 & 2.
The Hockey North America Pelicans played in 2 Barn Burner games the first day of competition in the Dragons Co-Ed Tournament. In the first game against the Rusty Blades Co-Ed team the game ended in a 3-3 tie. After 5 minutes of 4 on 4 Sudden Death overtime the score remained 3-3 so the Shoot-Out was needed. The HNA-Pelicans prevailed in the Shootout with goals from Jeff Carlson and the game winner by Chris Dewsnap. Star of the game was Goalie Libby Beaker who played a great game and stopped the Blades final shooter Joel Krystof to seal the win for the HNA-Pelicans. In regulation time Ben Dier with a goal, assisted by Ray Litzsinger & Drew O'Brien. Drew O'Brien in regulation time added two goals, one unassisted and the other assisted by Dier & Litzsinger.
In Game 2 vs. Beauties & Beasts the Pelicans got goals from Bob Younk, Amanda Swade, O'Brien, and Dier but the B&B's scored a late goal in the final minutes of play to get a 5 - 4 win. Libby Beaker in goal for the HNA-Pelicans played another strong game but took the tough luck loss. Game 2 was affected by a power-outage which caused some poor ice conditions but the game ended before the ice presented any serious safety issue. The power was restored about an hour after the game ended.
In Game 3 on Sunday MAY 20th it was yet another Barn Burner as the Pelicans faced off against the Family Affair Squirrels. After Regulation Time it was a 5 -5 Tie. In overtime it was a heart-breaker as a wild deflection up high off of a player's shoulder got past the Pelicans goalie high and the Squirrels got the 6-5 win. Scoring for the Pelicans were Jeff Carlson with 2 goals, Drew O'Brien with 2 goals, and Ben Dier with 2 goals.
Despite finishing the Tourney with a 1-2 record with points for Regulation Ties in all 3 games/ games going into overtime ( Game 1 a Shoot Out win) the Pelicans finished in 2nd Place with 11 Points behind the Champs Surf'in Cows undefeated with 15 Points. The other two teams tied for 3rd Place with 9 Points each no tie breakers to settle that outcome. It was a lot of fun and a big hockey weekend hosted by the Ladies Dragons Team.
