Gravy Legs and Left Overs

November 27, 2021

Did anyone see that it snowed yesterday? I did, I blame all those who decorated early. You know who you are (Mrs. Morrison). 

In any case the ice heated up quickly. The battle between two goalies in the first game. Votta Properties, Frank Zabatta and Vescera Laws, Chris Santiago. They blanked each other in the first, but in the second Rob Edleman cracked the egg for Vescera from Aimee Accino and Paul Pradario. Paul took the shot from the point, Aimee tried shoving it in, Rob cleaned up the change. Later in the period, Jay Arruda came up from the blue line taking a rebound from Doc Manzo on a cannon of a shot. Late in the period, Edleman got another from Aimee. That was it for the scoring. In the third some masterful saves by the goalies, would make this a 3-0 game with Vescera winning. 

In Game Two, more magic by the great Santini Santiago, playing for Green Goddess. Early in the First Gary Ouillett scored from a rebound of Brian Pendergast. A couple of shifts later, Neil Yee and Andy Morrison hooked up for a goal. In the second, Morrison would get his from Yee. Late in the Period, Pendergast would get a goal of his own with help from Dave Poisson, filling in for one of the missing players. This little paragraph is a bit stale compared to the game, which was a great skate. Both teams were at their finest with opportunities on both ends. 

In the third game, despite the (how did Mike Dussault put it) gross over reach of substitute players, nah that wasn't it. Basically using 3 A1 players for not so A1 players. In any despite that, the game was a 2-2 drawer. (Mike you can edit that part). So, Quick Dam was trying to get a win, but it was not enough. All scores happened in the second. It started early as Kreg Labelle got on the board with a breakaway for Edge Doctor. A shift or 2 later, Mike Thomas got on the board for the Edge. Kreg and Neil Foley on the Helpers. Quick Dam got both back late in the second. Nick Nardone filling in for the Dam got the first one with help by Frank Nardone. And yes, they are related. Brothers actually. I bet they have played a little hockey together through the years. Just a guess. As time ticked away in the second Chris Burkel (Pilot) would get the tying goal from Nardone, (Nick, not Frank). That would be all the scoring in this one. 2-2 in the end. Both goalies were stellar, Mark Schiavone and Mike Dussault in each net. Mike says NeeNer NeeNer to Shawn Smith. 

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I hope you have received the warmth of family and friends in your hearts. 

Have a great week.
