Sorry for the delay in the report and standings. I was day drinking yesterday at a cornhole tournament. Came in 4th. The real winners were the Little League baseball in Uxbridge. The standings are cluttered at the top.
Final Touch got themselves on the top again, rookie Shannon Caverly is doing a great job as captain for the touch. There is a history of winning managers of this team, I see Shannon keeping that tradition going. Her team donning the whites and making it difficult to tell who is playing, scored first in the second. It would be Pilot taking the lead. In the 3rd, a flurry of goals in just 3 minutes. Pilot would get one with Nate Patterson getting one from the point that people will be talking about for maybe, I don't know days, I guess. It was an awesome shot, shit had eyes. In any event, another one to finish the flurry by Jim Galvin. Votta would not give up and finally get on the board with Neil Foley scoring from a pass by Ricky Votta himself. Not enough as The Touch would go on to win 4-1.
In game 2 Manville would keep up with the Joneses by getting a win of their own. Keith Kraunelis would put MPP on his sore back and get two goals in the third to secure a 5-2 win over Green Goddess. The real hero of the game was the return of Craig Pizzo. Pizzo was donning his white cartoon skater pants and signature yellow helmet. I heard he doesn't have a yellow truck anymore. He must be beside himself on that. Welcome back Pizzo. We just need Hawes and Jordan to get back into the fold now. In the end, Green Goddess scored a couple. One in the first by Ricky Vasconcelos. Ricky V slammed the FIVE HOLE through a melee in front. Tim Pinsince got the lone goal in the second for his team. Andy Morrison got both assists for his team.
In the late game, Vescera Law and Quick Dam went at it. Quick Dam got out in front in the first with a goal by Sean Coffey from the point, with Kevin Webster getting the assist. Vescera slapped back in the next minute with a goal of their own. Greg Landry would get the goal after some cycling. He would take the pass from Scott Romiza, making his Friday night debut. Right from the face off, after that goal, Sean Smith sent Webster to the net and got the goal. Back and forth they went, throughout the second. Shannon Murphy stood on her head in goal to keep Vescera in this one. Romiza would get the Law the tie early in the third. This would end in a tie. 2-2
Hope everyone has a great week.
See you all at the rink.

It is the tail end of one of the most interesting season of recent memory. Never before have the captains been so tested in their endeavors. Normal years are difficult enough, but with a pandemic, it is 10 fold more of a challenge. Great job captains. We thank you for your continued effort.
All three games were tight, as the season winds down. Quick Dam and Green Goddess got the evenings games started. Quick Dam got a fast start with Neil Yee getting on the board, set up by Paul Bergeron. Middle of the first, Goddess came roaring back with Andy Morrison connecting with Tim Pincince for the goal. The two teams skated to a 1-1 tie through the second. Green Goddess got the next goal to break up the tie in the early goings of the third. 2 shifts later, Kevin Webster for Quick Dam would get the stretch pass from Sean Coffey, breaking away and putting the puck in with a back hand, top shelf to tie it up once again. Late in the period, using a power play, Goddess would take the lead once again. Andy Morrison swam across the crease, with help from Tim Pincince and Gary Ouilette. Less than a minute went by before, Goddess would strike again, Nick Merander, filling in would get the goal, with help from Pincince and Morrison. It was like those two were in on every play, or like they were on the ice for a lot of the time. hmm. Quick Dam would not go away, Yee would make the Goddess sweat late in the game, with help from Derek Franco rushing the puck from the blue line. A pulled goalie and some penalties made the end even more interesting. In the end, Goddess got the win. 4-3.
In game two, the Doctor was in against Vecsera Law. The Edge took the edge early with a goal by Adam Babikian, set up by Steve Manning. Early in the second Rob Edelman would get the Law on the board, tying things up. Rich Laplant killed that momentum with help from Babikian. Eric Campbell would stretch the lead for Edge Doctor. Early in the third Glen Marshall, on a hot streak, put one in the net with Manning helping. A few minutes later, Greg Landry would arrest the Doctors momentum with Dan Clare on the assist. Kevin Tondreau would help the cause less than a minute later, as the crawled back. It would not be enough. The Edge Doctor would hold on for the Win 4-3.
Late in the game, as the spectators were looking on, Votta Properties and Manville Pizza would round out the games for the evening. Votta got out to the early lead, getting 4 in the first. Eric Rondeau took the puck to the net from Neil Foley and Jarred Martin. Shane McCormick would get the next one on a break away and finished. He would end the period, or close to it with another one from Kreg Labelle and Brian Roman. Literally with a last second effort, Neil Foley would tip it in from Romans shot, 4-0 Votta. Way too much game left for Pizza to fold. Richie Dias (Happy Birthday Buddy) would put the empire on the board, with Mark Kosinski on the assist. later Kosinski would steal the puck and put it in the net. Kosinski would lug the team with him again and make it 4-3 with help from Mike Bragan. In the third, Votta would close out the scoring with Jarred Martin putting a stamp on this one. 5-3. Votta wins and takes hold of the number one spot.
Only 3 more weeks before the playoffs folks. Wow did that happen quickly eh. Not really, been a long season. But fun none the less.
Hope everyone has a great week. See you next Friday folks.
