On to the box scores…
Riots 1 @ Fresh Kills 5
Riots – David F (1)
Goalie Loss – Dave GdR (0-1)
Fresh Kills – Tom R x3 (3), Nate (1), Nicole H (1)
Goalie Win – Barch Pile (1-0)
Game Notes: Riots are now looking ahead to a Schlitz cup run that will top last year’s 3rd place finish in the lower conference playoff pool.
Advanced Analytics: After forgetting how to inbound the ball legally in his Week 12 makeup game, Tom remembered how to score goals as well (it’s amazing what making 5 games will do for a guy) and scored early and often in this one.
Rut Rot 0 @ Mega Touch 5
Goalie Loss – Peter Parker via FA
Mega – Alex EM (1), Nate L (1), Julie x2 (2), Nadya (1)
Goalie Shutout Win – Mike T (1-0, 1 Shutout)
Game Notes: Tuckman notches the first shutout of the BTSH playoffs, helping Mega avenge the recent OT loss against their
Michaliga Katz divisional foe.
Dank Bows 2 @ Butchers 1 F/OT
Rainbows – Dan C x2 (2)
Goalie OT Win – Greenwald (1-0)
Butchers – Pete d’A (1)
Goalie OT Loss – Tim Brk (0-1)
Game Notes: Like their division mates, Math, the real losers in the play-in round are the division 2 teams who lost that are ineligible to keep playing some “meaningful” Schlitz cup street hockey for the rest of the month. Enjoy golf season.
Math 0 @ Sky Fighters 3
Goalie Loss – David L (0-1)
Sky Fighers – Dana L (1), Moez (1), Brett (1)
Goalie Shutout Win – OG James (1-0, 1 Shutout)
Game Notes: Sky Fighters brass are hopeful that a playoff entry into the Round of 16 means some of their new talent have bought into the team’s future. On the other hand, maybe Tadpole Jack is now also poachable?
Karma 6 @ Gremlins 8 (Scrimmage)
Game Notes: I was told Walker did not show up. #PlayingTimeConcerns
On to the real playoffs…!
