What a night of hockey. Final Touch played the perfect game against Manny's. Starting with Dave MacDonald having a stellar game. MAC was one of the pillars of the game strategy. At the end of the first Chris Bach would take a shot from the point to get the scoring going. In the second Manny's would get a goal by their Captain Derek Signoriello. They say it was unassisted on the score but this was a team effort to beat Ole Mac. In the third, Mark Kosinski would use the stretch play receiving the long pass from Brian Roman. Roman looked like a quarterback throwing a hail mary. Kosinski would split the D and deek and dunk. Jay Pires thought he had it and made a good play, it just snuck under his pad apparently. That would be enough to get the win. However, their fearless leader, Richie Dias would put the stamp on it. A little tuck in dribbler on the right side from Bill Figuerido. Great game played by all. Final Touch wins 3-1.
Green Goddess routed Vescera law in game 2. Forecheck Foley would start this one off scoring early. Jim Galvin would end the first with a goal of his own. Kenny Beck and Adam Babikian would get the two in the second to make it 4-0. In the third, Rob Edleman would put his team on the board, finally figuring out Mark Clarkin. Dan Clare got the helper on his birthday with Paul Praderio. Yet the third belonged to Green Goddess. Ken Beck would get his second. Eric Campbell would slip one by the guest goalie. By the way, that was Dave McCloud in net. He is the drummer of the band Character Witness. Steven Albertelli would get one. Gavin would get his second and finally Adam Babikian would get his second. Bill Vescera would get the final goal of the night. The final score was 9-2 Green Goddess.
Now to the final game. Manville Palace Pizza, home of the late night pizza joint. If you are starving and it is 4 am the pizza is fine. Never want to hear a woman say that to you by the way. Its fine. wait what? Put it in a sentence. Anyway, back to the game. Brian Beck started the scoring for the Palace. Vollie back to Roman, who would get it tied at 1 by Shane McShane Shane McCormick with Glen Medeiros getting the helper. In the second Roman would go up by one with help of a guest and Andy Morrison. MPP yeah you know me, would answer with 2 more in the second going up again. If you didn't see the tie goal, it harkened back to a younger version of a man. Yep, Kevin Bartels would deke his way by the competition and beat the tender on the stick side. It was a thing of beauty. Mike Bragan would get the game winner. And in the wayning moments of the game, an empty netter by Dan Dussault would cap this off.
Great night of hockey. Things change in a heart beat.
Have a great week.
Live, Breathe, Love....................Hockey!!!!
Here ye here ye here ye. All rise for the honorable Michael Dussault presiding. Stand up and be heard, in all three games. What? Did I hear that right? Junior played in 3 games? ..........Its like rain on your wedding day, its free ride when you already paid. its good advice that you just didn't take.....And isn't it Ironic. Don't you think Captains?
On to the games. Mike started in his PJ's with Votta Properties. Giving up 5 goals but taking the win against Green Goddess. Votta got over on Green Goddess by 2 getting 7. Stephen Albertelli would get 2 and an assist. Anthony Lisi would match with 2 himself and an assist to help the cause. The scrappy Adam Bilbikian would finish the scoring for the Goddess late in the third but it wouldn't be enough. Keven Webster owned this game, who owns who owns. Kevin would get goals in a bunch. A hat in the second and 2 more in the third. Holy crap, who do you think you are young man. Nate Arruda and Ricky Votta would contribute in the first and second as well to round out the scoring. Jared Martin and Ralphie Espilat would be the spoons that fed the baby for the assists. Votta wins 7-5. great game.
In Juniors second game, he would prevail again. Final Touch would face the beast this time in their away pinny's. Mark Kosinski for FT would start the scoring for the touch and the only goal in the first. In the second it was all Manville all the time. This was Brian Becks game. Beck would get a hat trick as he had dreams of our Nations Capital this weekend. The cop Greg Landry would be the feeder this time, along with Shannon ( ill take you down bitch Meegan) Caverly getting a couple of assists. Richie LaPlante would figure in a goal and an assist to help the cause. In the end, Captain Dan Dussault would book end with the first and last goal of the game. The MPP would take out the Touch 6-2 sorry Richie Dias from Somerset Massachusetts.
The Emperor got some new clothes in the final game and would be exposed. OH MY! In fact, it was Jay Goyette getting the better of Vescera Law. Lots of subs though last night. Goyette got 4 goals for the good guys. Shooter almost got a hatty but not quite. had 2 and 2. The hero of the game was Jimmy Meegan. Forget Forecheck Foley, we now have Jam it in Jimmy. James Meegan was the straw the broke the proverbial back of the opposition. Meegan's tenacity was inspiring. Mark Schaivone would help Manny's to get the shut out 8-0 over Vescera Law.
There was some concern with the VP or Emperor of the league Mike, goalie, junior Dussault. He had to leave. He had to get up and be at the airport early this morning. What a trooper. Huh? Apparently he made it, because he texted me from the plane. Yep at 830 this morning. I was up believe it or not folks.
You know it is halloween month. So, I think we should have a ghost story a week.
I had this album when I was a kid. Where is my golden arm.......Awesome shit. BTW I wish I still had it, in used condition, worth $99 on ebay.
