MICHIGAN STING WEEKLY UPDATE
AUGUST 18, 2016 – “A” LEAGUE
FINAL WEEK OF THE PLAYOFFS
THE WINGS AND THE STARS WILL FACE OFF NEXT WEEK IN THE SAM CUPP CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. IT SHOULD BE A BARN BURNER!
DISCOUNT TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE OPC(OLDER PERSONS COMMISSION) IN ROCHESTER HILLS.
LEAFS 3 HAWKS 3
Leafs play the role of spoiler – as the Hawks desperately needed a win as they pull their goalie with the game tied! Captain John “Shifty” Shelton with the Hawks last two goals. Center Nate McCaughtry with the Hawks first marker. Mike Riddle(2) and Jeff Ivory score for the Leafs. Left winger Mike Nalepa with the hat trick assist. Goal Billy Mac Jr. was simply outstanding in nets for the Leafs! The game started ten minutes late as Hawks goalie Joe Polizzi had beverage issues before the game. Bottom line – don’t have the goalie bring beer!
STARS 2 HABS 1
Mike “King of the Road” Miller scores his second goal of the game on the power play, with just under three minutes remaining to give the Stars a very pivotal victory! All the games scoring was in the final period. Habs sub Chris Isola scores a power play goal for the Habs. Both goalies – Billy Schaugg and Habs sub “Rickie” Nelson were stellar in nets.
WINGS 7 BRUINS 2
With the top spot in the playoffs clinched – the Wings come out flying as the number one line of Steve Bayagich(3 & 1), Scott Bozyk(Trick) and John McNeilly(5 helpers) total 12 points in the game! Wings sub Chodin also with a goal. Goaltender Dar with a very light workload. Craig Bastuba and Mike T. Brown do the honors for the Bruins.
BRUINS 3 STARS 3
The Bruins attempt to derail the Stars Championship game aspirations as Stars center Joey Reiss scores with the goalie pulled for the tie! Steve Bittner and Mike Miller also with Stars goals. Todd Brown(2) and center Donnie Rivera were the Bruins marksman. Steve Bittner and Danny Rea of the Stars, both vehemently voice their displeasure at the end of the game and pick up 10 minute unsportsmanlike penalties.
LEAFS 4 WINGS 3
A game of no playoff consequence. But you couldn’t tell both teams that! In the last game played as an original Michigan Sting team – the Leafs are packing their bags and heading west, as they will now be called the Sharks. It was only fitting, that long time Leafs Captain Jeff Ivory, scores the short handed breakaway top shelf game winning goal with less than a minute left in the game! The crowd went wild! Curt Lesnau and the Mikes – Ala and Nalepa also score for the Leafs. John McNeilly, Mike Wilson and sub Scott Davenport tally for the Wings.
HABS 6 HAWKS 5
Bob Rowling scores the natural tour du chapeau in the first period for the Frenchmen, as they bounce the reeling Hawks out of Championship game contention. The Hawks are winless in their six final playoff games. Singles for Mike Brown, Kyle Lybecker and Brian Moore. Hawks – Dougie Roehl, Marty Papesh, John Shelton, Nate McCaughrty and sub Steve Wink.
