Late game between USA and Poland was a good one and a very confusing one.  Poland scored the lone goal of the 1st period (we think).  USA scored twice in the 2nd and Poland once for a 2-2 tie after 2 periods (we think).  Final period saw both squads score 3 times for a final 5-5 tie. (we think). USA went 2-3 on the PP and Poland was 0-2.  Goals for USA went to Steve Atchison, rookie sensation Johnny ‘Cowboy’ Ridge, Joel May, John Annan and Murray Russell.  For Poland Jim Maguire got 2 goals, singles for Joe Cosentino, rookie Matt Goddard and fill in Pat McCormick.  Fill in players for Poland all stats go to their backstop Senkowski who actually leads the team in scoring, what?????

Players of the Game went to USA Bobby Ide and Polands Matt Goddard.

This weeks games on Friday, November 15 are as follows; 9:15 Poland vs Finland and at 10:30 Sweden vs Canada.  USA gets the week off (we think).
