Week 19 Recap January 26, 2018

Last weeks recap.  Early game between Poland and Finland.  Poland scores the lone goal in the opening period.  Finland bounces back and out scores the Polocks 2-1 in the 2nd tieing up the game at 2’s.  Intense battle in the final period.  Poland takes back the lead with 5 minutes to go and closes the deal with 2 minutes winning this game 4-2.  Both squads went 0-1 on the PP.  Finland got goals from rookie Peter Freeman and Dan Barrett.  Poland got goals from the most handsome Old-timer Joe Peacock, Leo Brideau (did he actually play??), Bryon Wright and Tony Carlisle.  Players of the Game went to Finlands rookie # 10 Peter Freeman and for the Polocks team sponsor #5 Frankie Nweisser.

Late game between the rested Swedes and our top squad Canada.  Swedes had some fans out with many Swedish flags and Sephano Ferrin seemed to be very excited, not sure why.  Swedes end the 1st frame on top 2-1.  The surprised Canadians bounced back big time in the 2nd out scoring the last place Swedes 4-2 for a 5-4 lead after 2.  Swedes who usually fade fast in their final periods scored twice early taking a 6-5 lead.  What?????  Canada tied it back up at 6’s with 9 minutes to go.  A feisty affair as Canada took multiple penalties in the last third of the game but the Swedes could not solve the temp backstop Mike Jende and this game ends in a tie 6-6.  Swedes celebrated like they won the Stanley Cup, thats what you get with only a win and a tie playing the top squad.  Canada went 1-3 on the PP and Sweden was 0-3.  Goals for Canada, 2 from the wood of rookie Tim Martins and singles from Paul Alloway, Enzo Ianno, Murray Russell with a beauty and Robin Chantaj.  Sweden got 2 goals from league leader in goals Robin Flumerfelt and singles from Jay Cummings, his 1st of the season, Mike Rukavina, Stephano Ferrin, who after scoring had his glove at his mouth staring down the crazy Swedish fans, Tony Thomas rounded out the scoring.  Players of the Game went to Canada’s #7 Steve Atchison and for the Swedes a big game on the blue line #2 Billy Dawe.  One horn up one down for the tie.

Boys,

Early game last week between our top 2 teams Canada vs Finland.  Could this be a gold medal game preview, maybeeeeee.  Canada scored first early.  Finland responded with 3 goals to take a 3-1 lead after 1 period.  Finland scored early in the 2nd up 4-1.  Canada got a late goal to stay within reach 4-2 after 2.  Canada made it a 1 goal game as they scored at 11:50 in the 3rd.  Frantic action at both ends as both backstops took over and shut out all shooters and Finland wins 4-3.  An exciting game!  Canada went 1-3 on the PP and scored short handed.  Finland was 0-2.  Finland got 2 goals from rookie sensation Steve MacDougall and singles from Brian Spence and Dan Barrett.  Canada got goals from Murray Russell, Neil Kelly and Paul Harty.  Players of the Game went to both goalies Scott McCallum and Frank Rispoli.

Late game between Poland and USA.  2-1 for the Polocks after 1 period.  2-1 for the Americans in the 2nd tieing up this tilt at 3’s after 2 periods.  USA backstop Gordie Ide suffered a knee injury and left the game in the 2nd period.  No back up goalies were available and USA played without one.  Both squads scored twice in the first 5 minutes of the 3rd.  Poland took the lead once again at 8:41 of the 3rd but then camaraderie between both squads took over and they decided to end the game early and record it as a 5-5 tie, ahhhhhhh!!!  Poland went 0-1 on the PP and USA was 0-0.  Poland got 3 goals from the new league leader Patrick McCormick and singles from Eric Fletcher, Kevin Nicholson and Bryon Wright.  USA got 2 goals from Ron Cormier and singles from Paul Barbosa, Joe Cosentino and Rob McKean.  Players of the Game went to USA Ron Cormier and to Polands Pat McCormick.

Week 15 & 16 Recap

Boys,

Finally back in action sorry for the delay.  Before I give you updates from the Holiday games just wanted to send out our love to Steve Waters on Team USA who lost his Mom over the holidays.  On behalf of all of us Steve our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

So Dec. 29 early game between Canada and Poland.  2-1 for the Canuckle heads after the opening frame.  All Polocks in the 2nd as they score 3 unanswered goals taking a 4-2 lead into the final period.  Both squads scored once in the 3rd for a final big victory for the Polocks 5-3.  Both teams went 0-0 on the PP keeping Brenda very lonely, nice.  Poland got goals from Brian Burke, Eric Fletcher, John Annan, Joe Peacock and Patrick McCormick.  Canada got goals from Marcello Diluzio, Enzo Ianno and Dr. Joel May.  Players of the Game went to Polands #15 Bryon Wright and to Canada’s #11 Robin Chantaj (the best looking Chantaj by the way).

Late game on the 29th was Sweden vs USA.  Trumpsters score the only goal in the 1st period.  More of Donald Boys in the 2nd as they out score the Nordic team 4-1 for a 5-1 lead.  Both squads get singles in the final period for a final USA victory of 6-2.  Sweden went 0-1 on the PP and USA was 0-0.  Goals for Sweden Patrick Sharp and Paul ‘Pork Chop’ Tavares.  USA got a hat trick from Joe Cosentino, 2 goals from Paul Barbosa and a single from George Letsos.  Sweden called up Mike Jende to play goal and awarded him easily as their Player of the Game as he faced 105 shots this game.  Bobby Ide taking the night off to heal his bruises sent Mike a text hahahahahahahahaha.     USA gave their award to Replacement dude John Fassullo????????

Early match on January 5 between Canada and the USA.  Just note Brenda ran out of ink for this one.  Shut outs at both ends at the end of the 1st period.  10 goals scored in the 2nd period as Canada gets 6 and USA gets 4.  3rd period saw another 7 goals scored, 4-3 for Canada for a final Canuck win of 10-7.  Interesting game.  Zero penalties in this one.  Canada got the following goals scored, 2 goals each for Tim Martins, Marcello Diluzio and Paul Harty and singles from Enzo Ianno, Ron Chantaj, Robin Chantaj and Dr. Joel May.  For the Trumpsters 2 goals from fill in player from Sweden Patrick Sharp and the rest all singles, David Rinaldo, George Letsos, Dwayne Tygesen, Sal Guerra and Joe Cosentino.  Players of the Game went to Canada’s #9 Marcello Diluzio and to USA Patrick Sharp.  Lets see if Patty shot his load as he now will play a double header, mmmmmmmm.

January 5 late game between the struggling Swedes and their arch rival Finland.  All Fins in the opening period out scoring the Swedes 3-1.  No let down for the Swedes as they out score the Fins 4-1 in the 2nd frame taking a 5-4 lead into the 3rd.  Finland scored twice in less than a minute early in the 3rd taking back their lead 6-5.  2 more Finnish goals to close out this tilt with a victory of 8-5.  Sweden does not like the 3rd period thats for sure.  Feisty affair with lots of Brenda contact.  Finland went 0-4 on the PP and Sweden was 0-2.  Finland got 3 goals from Steve MacDougall, 2 goals from the handsome Brent Byer and singles from Tommy Marshall, Bruce Freeman and Peter Freeman.  What????  Father and son both scoring in the same game ahhhhhhh.  Classy move from the rookie MacDougall who also had 2 break aways late in the game and just shot the puck in the corner, class act!!!!   Sweden got a hat trick from District Attorney Robin Flumerfelt and singles from Mike Rukavina and Steve Ferrin.  An Italian, a Croatian and a lawyer walked into a bar……  Finland gave their Player of the Game to rookie Steven MacDougall well deserved and Sweden gave it easily to backstop Bobby Ide returning to face a 90 shot night.
