Beating the Beers

We passed the puck crisply, played solid defense, and had a great game by our back-up goalie, Mo. We played the Beers, a team we have now beaten all three times we have played them, and the 9-1 mercy-rule win was our second mercy game win in a row.

I scored a goal, played solid defense, and knocked one of their players out of the game with a bell-ringing slapshot. I felt bad when he went down, and even worse when they brought him ice a few minutes later, but I did pick up the loose puck with him laying on the floor and take another shot. The guy did end up coming back later in the game, and I thought about apologizing at the post game handshake, but then I didn’t. Nothing was intentional and its part of the game. I wonder if he was wearing a cup.

The important thing is we are now 3-4 on the season, and in fourth place. The Outsiderz, who I am assuming lost their game to Crest, are now 3-5. We are playing a double header next week, and then close out the season against the Outsiderz, a team we have never beaten.

Outsiderz are playing the 0-8 Winning is Optional next week, so let’s assume they win. That makes them 4-5 going in to the last week of the season. We have Crest and Slackjaws in a double header next week. For a second, let’s assume the worst, and we lose both, putting us at 3-6.

Then we play the Outsiderz in the final week of the season. If we win, we will both be 4-6 with a 1-1 head-to-head record, which means it comes down to goal differential. We have a +11 goal differential right now, but with two games next week that will probably change. I have no idea what their goal differential is, but we should find out next week.

Maybe he should consider wearing a cup.

Well, let me tell you it was a very tiring night of hockey for us. But we came out of it pretty good, as did you guys. Congrats on the 9-1 thumping of the Beers. We beat WIO 8-4, I kind of relaxed in net in the third period. We were up 8-2 and we still had Jack Attack to play. We played a great game and so did Jack Attack, wound up in a 1-1 tie. Best I've ever felt in net. Unfortunetly there was some extra-curricular activity at the very end of the game. And we have lost probably our best defensman for the rest of the season and one of our forwards for our game next week againt you guys. Jack Attack lost a guy for 2 games. Anyway, I look forward to playing you this next week, should be a good one.
