We are in August (well…not right now but the next games are) which means it’s the beginning of the home stretch. This is a great time for a team to get hot, and don’t look now, but a former champion is heating up. Sky Fighters vs. Anklebiters is your GOTW.

Even though he claims he never reads this site, Stein does quote it a lot.

Its the same ol' Anklebiters...three players three beers. But these Biters can play. Yeah we all know about Joe P. Craig and Derho, but can we get some love for the ladies? Sarah Moore and Shelley Maasdorp each have four goals, and Shelley scored in the ASG (and even had time to give a speech about not taking long shifts so others can play).

Meanwhile...the Sky Fighters off a beyond dreadful start are heating up. They are getting hot at just the right time and break or no break, Dan Hopper isn't going to let his team miss a week of hockey.  This is Dan getting all the SF's together last Sunday for a scrimmage. Unfortunately, they ended up losing 3-2 in OT when the girl in the blue left her point man wide open and Jamie...who was playing out scored. Yes, Jamie plays in your home games too.

Predictions:

Rich: I don’t often predict OT games…I’m not afraid to say when a team is gonna get blown out. But if attendance is equal, I’m going with Sky Fighters 3-2 in OT.
Derek: Biters take it 3-2.
Eli: Are you insinuating that every game that does not go to overtime is a blowout, Richie? If so, then the Anklebiters blow out the Sky Fighters, 2-1.
