Isaac is away this week and we all have no idea what the hell we’re doing. It’s ok, I think I got this…

Filthier blanked the Butchers 3-0.

#GoalieBecca played great again, but the Rainbows edged out Gut Rot 2-1. (I hadn’t seen Jessica that happy since she told me about the time she was front row for One Direction.)

Poutine took down the, umm, “wily” Demons.

In the game of the day, OT wasn’t enough to settle the 1-1 deadlock between Kai and the Biters. Craig stopped all shooters in the 6 or 7 round shootout, and Shannon scored the only shootout goal, giving the Biters the extra point.

Mega came back from a 1-0 deficit in the 2nd half to top the Riots, 3-1.

Lbs continued to roll as they notched another W, this time over Fuzz.

Grems/Karma and WTP/Sky Fighters both got rained out in the 2nd half.

The 6pm matchups between the Hookers/Math and Rehabs/Fresh Kills were also washed out.

We feel the same way that Sarah did about the late rainouts…

At the 11th hour (literally, or 23rd on Jo-Ann’s 24 hour clock…whatever the heck that is), here are the Week 15 box scores. Hope everyone enjoyed their pizza (preview) Fridays! Very nostalgic. Were you a 1 cheese slice or 2 pepperoni slice kid? I think the best slices we ever got were from Mr Mozzarella in grade 6. What Pizza Friday slice do you remember the most?

What do you call a cheesy high stick? American.

Habs 0 @ GANK 1

Goalie Loss – Eric R (4-4, GAA 1.10)

Biters – Andy M (1)

Goalie Shutout Win – Craig “used shoes salesman” LaC (10-1, 5 Shutouts, GAA 1.16)

Game Notes: HockeyBeach 2018 poaching comes full circle nearly 1 year to the date as Andy pots the difference between his new and former teammates.

Goalie Shutout Win – Steve F (4-4, 1 Shutout, GAA 2.68)

Goalie Loss – David L (5-5, GAA 2.57)

Riots 1 @ Poutine 2

Riots – Jake T (2)

Goalie Loss – Dave GdR (3-8)

Poutine – James McQ (5), Hornswoggle (2)

Gremlins – Iannis x2 (3), Allison B (1)

Goalie Shutout Win – Jamie B (7-5, 4 shutouts, GAA 1.46)

Game Notes: Becca’s goalie gear was off in 2.22 seconds after the final whistle. That’s faster than most goons lose their gloves for a fence pushing tilly.

Advncd Anlytcs: Whatever shutout, GA, and GAA is published for Jamie, there is a 100% chance that Walker will complain about it. He’s only even (a plus and a minus) on corrections mailed in by his non-millenial carrier pigeon to the commissionherr’s office thus far in 2019.

Pounds 2 @ Butchers 1

Los Blancos – Scotty K (3), Roberts (8)

Goalie Win – Zak C via Demons

Butchers – Jake T (7)

Goalie Loss – Tim Brk (2-7, GAA 2.83)

Game Notes: Butchers have another strong defensive effort but lose late to a heart-breaking goal by a team leading 8th goal from Roberts.

DaPucks 3 @ White Rainbows 2 F/SO

WTP – McCauley via weekly Pizza Preview Ringers (1), Annie via rostered ringers (3)

Goalie Shootout Win – Ed P via rostered Thints poachee ringers (6-5, GAA 2.21)

Goalie Shootout Loss – Greenwald #HotLegs2018Ringer (2-11)

Shootout Winner – Michaliga shootout winner ringer (with help from Patty Kane ringer and Kuzy ringer)

Game Notes: So many ringers! And we didn’t even mention Nate No Show Lerner yet.

Advncd Anlytcs: After two quick goals by the Rainbows Ringers early, WTP’s 2 scorers in regulation were the only 2 to whiff in the skills comp for the bonus point.

Filthier 2 @ CK 1 F/SO

Filthier – Sunny (6)

Goalie Shootout Win – Tim K (9-3, GAA 1.39)

Cobra Kai – Liam (3)

Goalie Shootout Loss – Ryan M (0-5, GAA 2.55)

In honour of none of us playing in that darn cool hockey OC tournament this weekend, a “Ned Flanders” quote to describe these belated box scores…

“A plain slice of bread with a glass of water for dipping on the side.” That gosh darn prediddlyictable.

They were rude, obnoxious, drunken and definitely disorderly. Everywhere you walked you would hear, “PULLLLLOUTTTTSSSS!!!!” Who woulda thought someone as classy as Anika could gather a group of such vulgar, unrefined, primitive, drunken hockey players? But despite not winning a game, they all channeled their inner-Ellery and outfunned us all. While the rest of us were driving home to New York, they were still partying in OC. PULLLLOUTTTTTSSS!!!!!

One week ’til (our) HockeyBeach! On to the box scores…

Game Notes: A box score where all the nicknames make sense? Is it possible?

Rotters 2 @ Rioters 8

Gut Rot – Becca (1), Akhil (4)

Goalie Win – Sam S

Riots – Dave F x3 (6), Kevin Zed (2), Dave Not the Goalie L (2), Mia via Sky Fighters, Katie S (also poached via Sky Fighters? :O) x2 (4)

Goalie Loss – Dave GdR

Game Notes: The Becca Mehta sibling rivalry is not enough to propel Gut Rot to victory (yet again).

Advncd Anlytcs: Also, why does Akhil have (THREE!!!) more goals than you Becca?!

Dendems 2 @ Touches 4

Demons – Rubens (2), Reznick (3)

Goalie Loss – Zach L

Mega – Julie (3), Yuriy (1), Jeff B x2 (4)

WTP?! – Annie A (2), The Dude (4), The Ball Hogg (8)

Goalie Win – Goalie Ed P

Game Notes: Annie’s goals in back to back games propel pucks to another 2 points. The man they call mccauley quietly had 3 (primary) apples.

Advncd Anlytcs: Walker -3. MINUS THREE. “Worst game ever” Too [much] (time put into finding) subs”.

No one likes our poo emoji shirt coloured win streak and we don’t care!

Instead of complimenting each team in this week’s previews we’ll be saying which pizza they are and why- and maybe some hockey stuff at the end or whatever. We apologize if this is too.. cheesy for you.

Filthier v Butchers

Filthier is a classic cheese pizza. Consistently delicious, often overlooked for no apparent reason, and when compared against more expensive or elaborate pies, is often the one you’d prefer to have. 

The Butchers are a buffalo chicken pizza. Between RG1 and Cheeky, there is more than enough sass to make this team one of the spicier ones in the league.

Prediction: In the end, the classic pie beats the heat. Cheese 5, Buff Chix 2.

Is BTSH a hockey league with a drinking problem or a drinking league with a hockey problem? Old school or new school? Hot dog or sandwich?

Just for a moment, let’s put our differences aside, and focus on what really matters: hair.

BTSH Media is back baby with top notch investigative journalism* getting to the bottom of the timeless hockey question of who has the best flow.

*running around at the courts making various people pose for portrait mode photos

A BTSH rock n roll classic, here we have Mike D. His 80’s locks can be spotted from just about anywhere on the court and not just because he wears a bright orange jersey. When asked how he brushes his hair, he replied “What’s a brush?”

HEY REMEMBER THAT TIME HE PICKED UP A PIGEON.

Rock on, man.
