“R” LEAGUE WEEKLY UPDATE – DECEMBER 6, 2016
I HAVE RETURNED FROM COSTA RICA.
TIME FOR SOME HOCKEY!
SHARKS 3 HABS 1
The indestructible George Gray, buries the late game winner as the Sharks defeat the Frenchmen in this nail biter. Fellow former FOG, Joe White with the Sharks initial goal. Both George and Joe used to play for a long and storied tournament team called the FOGS. The clean version of this acronym is Fairly Old Guys. Replace the first word with the actual x-rated version and you have the true team name! Steve Orr with the lone Habs goal.
HAWKS 4 FLYERS 2
Getting back to his old goal scoring ways – Chuck Mouraine with the deuce for the Hawks. Brian Belloli and factoring in all of his teams goals – Jimmy George with a big 1 & 3 game. Bruce “Cooler Man” Gooel and Dr. Keri Topouzian tally for the Flyers.
BRUINS 2 WINGS 2
A tight checking affair as both teams pick up a well earned point. Both goalers – Mike Schlimgen and Bobby Rutkoske were excellent between the pipes. The Bruins score a power play goal to go up 2-1. Four minutes later the Wings reciprocate with the game tying power play goal of their own. Cam “Steamboat” Lawrence and Rob “The Rifleman” Duncan do the honors for the Wings. Bobby Watson and sub Steve “Mario” Lemieux tally for the Bruins.
SHARKS 5 WINGS 3
The Sharks remain undefeated in this young second season. Jimmy “Boog” Powell leads the way with a two goal game. Singles for Joe Plati, who also had three helpers, Dougie Roehl and sub “Joel” McCrea. Cam Lawrence, Stevie Lambert and Grand Rapids call up Churilla score for the Wings.
FLYERS 3 HABS 3
The Habs pick up their first point of the second half season in this seesaw contest. Jeff “Dick” Tracy scores twice for the Habs. Kenny “Primetime” Wilkins with the middle goal. John Zuccarini scores twice on the same shift for the Flyers. Mike Ala with the Flyers initial tally.
BRUINS 4 HAWKS 0
Bobby Rutkoske lead the first half season in whitewashes and he’s picking up right where he left off in season two, with the blanking of the Hawks. Bob “Bugsy” Watson with the deuce. Singles for Adam Godard and Rick Batchelder. The only Hawk highlight was sub goalie Paul Kaczmarek picking up a ‘Throwing the Stick” penalty.
