“A” LEAGUE WEEKLY UPDATE – OCTOBER 21, 2021
LISTEN UP BOYS!
THE SUNDAY(8:45 A.M.) PICKUP SKATE IS IN DIRE NEED OF COMMITTED PLAYERS!
IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF WE LOST THIS PREMIUM ICE SLOT.
PLEASE CONSIDER ATTENDING THIS SKATE.
HABS 5 FLYERS 0
Billy Schaugg racks up another career shutout as the Habs jump out to a four zip first period lead and cruise for the W. Captain Joey Reiss with the natural tour du chapeau in period one! Power forward Rob Rowling with the deuce. No Flyers highlights.
HAWKS 6 BRUINS 3
Hawks play a very strong game for the victory! Centers Brian Moore and Scott Chodun with two goal games. Singles for Jordan Roberts and returning from the DL Rob Giroux. Line-mates Jeff Steiber, Mike Nalepa and Rex Baker tally for the men in yellow. Glenn Howarth of the Bruins picks up a solo roughing minor penalty.
SHARKS 7 WINGS 0
Ouch! Just when you think your playing good, this humble game of hockey brings you back to earth! Da Sharks rip apart the top spot Wings! Sub Paul Elsey Jr. and playing some of his best hockey in recent memory – Ward Peterson with the deuce. Singles for Nate McNaughtry, Mike Garlick and Dave Rupprecht. Billy Papciak with the well earned shutout! No Wings highlights in this penalty free game.
HAWKS 4 WINGS 2
It sure does make a difference having your entire team intact! After a month of a plethora of subs each week for the Hawks, they get back on track with the sweep today! Brian Moore with the trick! Robbie Olmstead with the game winning goal with just 40 seconds left in the first period. Goaler “Smoking” Joe Polizzi was hot today! Steve Bayagich and Rob Montgomery with the Wings markers. Held without a goal today, frustrated Wings center Zach Wagner picks up a minor penalty and immediately racks up a ten minute misconduct while exiting the box!
BRUINS 5 HABS 3
Jeff “Marine” Steiber scores his first two of three goals shorthanded, as the Bruins are now tied for first place with the Wings. Rex Baker and John Cornish with singles. Rob Rowling(2) and Mark Rogers with the Habs goals.
SHARKS 5 FLYERS 0
The day’s third shutout! Very rare in this run and gun league! Another rarity, as goaltender Billy Papciak picks up a double shutout! Nice job Billy! The Sharks are clicking on all cylinders as they are now undefeated in their past two doubleheaders. Sub Mr. Paul Elsey Jr. with a four goal game! Brian Reath with the game winning goal. Tough day for the Flyers today, as they miss their 27 year old sub from last week and fail to score in today’s doubleheader. Which by the way – is another rarity!
