Fuzz held their banner raising (the rare banner raising that takes place with no trophy present), then proceeded to outlast Filthier 3-1 in a tight contest. Gil had the awesome no-look pass on the game winner while Jeff stole an empty netter from his wife and will probably be introduced to the business end of the sofa bed this week.
Poutine toughed out a surprisingly high scoring match against their new division rivals What The Puck and won 5-3, keeping numerous survivor pools afloat. James wins the award for most wipeouts on the day, playing as if it wasn’t constantly raining during his game.
The upset of the day was probably four teams cancelling but the Demons actually playing their game, which they took handily 7-0 over Gut Rot. Hey, dropping divisions three straight years certainly has its benefits.
The Gremlins outlasted Karma with a tight 1-0 victory. Walker celebrated the season opening victory by ordering 27 tacos and correcting the grammar on the menu.
After falling behind 2-0 early, the LBS rallied with four straight goals to beat Cobra Kai 4-2. I guess those Soko Division Preview writers knew what they were talking about.
The Hookers beat the Butchers 1-0 on a shootout goal from Danilo. Somewhere out there the lines for D2 props are shifting rapidly.
The Biters beat Math 4-1. Probie had at least one goal while Andy finally sent me a Christmas card last week.
The Rainbows outlasted Mega Touch in an 8 round shootout. Julie popped the water bottle with her backhander but it wasn’t enough as the Rainbows have already exceeded 2017’s win total. Afterwards Brett suggested that in the future shootouts where teams are about to repeat shooters, there should be one round of goalie-on-goalie attempts. BTSH, let’s make this happen.
While you may be expecting more game writeups here, all the 5:00 teams cancelled their games despite the fact that the weather was way better at 5 than any other point in the day. Sad times but Soko’s got kids and the Rehabs ladies were probably borderline dead today from a full weekend of celebrating Sena’s birthday. Special shoutout to the Riots who pulled the impressive move of cancelling a late game when they were the closing team and not sending a rep to help, you know, close. I guess that’s one way to maintain an undefeated record…
We’ll leave you with the full shootout from two teams who actually wanted to play hockey today. See ya next week.
