We “officially” finished in second place (tied for points with Ward’s and Marshrat’s, but we won the tiebreaker), 2 points out of 1st. Led the league in goals (70) and differential (+34). Pretty damn good season all in all. Although I collected the jersey’s last night, I would like to come back with the same group next summer if you are interested (and Ruel doesn’t need to have his leg amputated).
Thanks to everyone for playing, and everything else you contributed. Shawn and Crowley were great house chef’s, and we always had a cold beer waiting after the games. Hell, the ice was even decent this year.
I hope everyone is having a good summer. Thankfully, it is almost over, as Fall Hockey is almost upon us. That means it is time to ratchet up the off season training (Knight runs a windsprint session every Tuesday and Thursday morning at the Tabor track, 5am sharp), sharpen the skates and check your equipment.
I received the Hetland schedule today, and we are slotted in our usual Tuesday night spot from 8:30-10PM. 12 games beginning Tuesday Sept. 3rd and running through November 19th. Cost will be approximately $175.
As always, please let me know if you are IN / OUT / SUB. I usually need subs in the Fall pretty much every week. We do have a number of guys who played last year who would be interested in a spot, so if you cannot commit, are injured or are unsure, I can put you on the SUB list and you will have 1st priority.
Paul and Tom, let me know your status for the Fall. I have a couple other goalies who can fill in or take a spot if you cannot commit.
Guys…good win last night. Special thank you to Steve Gal for getting Crowley out of the rack. It makes me feel worse that we lost to those guys earlier in the season.
4 points out of 1st place with 2 games left. It’s a long shot, but we still have a slight chance. We win our last two and we should be in the top 3 for the season. We play those cheap bastards Ward’s from two weeks ago and I would really like to beat them. All (healthy) hands on deck if able to go. IN or OUT…let me know.
Also, Shawn Coffey would like to change up the sweaters for the last couple games. He sent me these options below. Please vote your preference and Shawn will place the order through his contacts…thanks!
