“A” LEAGUE WEEKLY UPDATE – JUNE 8,2017
FLYERS 2 WINGS 2
A well played entertaining contest as the score indicates. Donnie Rivera and Curt Lesnau score for the Flyers. Lesnau’s goal was a beautiful feed behind the net from a Wings defenseman, right on Lesnau’s tape and a simple slam dunk, as Wings goalie Kirk Larson was caught looking in the other direction. Rob Rowling and a sharp one timer goal from “Jumping” Jim Leonardi round out the Wings scoring. Both puck stoppers – Kirk “Captain America” Larson and Dar were outstanding in nets. Dar foiled a 2 on 0 as Steve Bayagich with head down – buried the puck in Dar’s out stretched glove! Flyers Captain Billy Knight returned and played, from his medical emergency of one week ago! Welcome back Billy!

Dr. Nate, John “Shifty” Shelton, Eddie Sudzina and JP – on a beautiful top shelf laser tally for the Hawks. Mike Riddle, Jeff Ivory and Billy Mac. Jr. with the Sharks markers. After Billy Mac Jr. scores his goal, he goes down to one knee and does a fist pump in celebration by the Hawks bench! After Hawks center John Shelton scores – he attempts the same thing and almost falls flat on his face! John says: “That’s a little harder than it looks!” Billy Mac and Hawks forward Scott Chodun get into a nasty open ice collision. You know that look when a good player gets upset and is in SNAP capability! Billy had that look – look out guys! Talk about cold showers! Following the games today the water was ice cold! Hawks forward and Army veteran Eddie Sudzina tells his teammates: “This is nothing compared to the parts of the world I’ve been too! This water is beautiful!”
