Meatbird Cup Game 1 – Hosers defeat Oglethorpes 3-0

Heckuva game last night to kick off the Cup, with the Yellow Hosers notching a 3-0 victory behind the strong goaltending of Boo Davison.

Dun got the scoring going early with a tricky 5-hole shot that squirted through for a 1-0 lead.  Steve Gal then apparently made it 2-0 but the goal was called off by Oglethorpe assistant captain Bob Galavotti.  The goal will be reviewed by league officials on Thursday.

Back and forth the game went with lock down defense and stellar netminding until Mark Hoeful banged in a rebound to make it 2-0 with about 20 minutes to play.

With the goalie pulled, Green made a strong push in the final minutes, but was denied.  Pete Newton potted an empty netter to seal it.

Tom Evans made 74 saves in the losing effort.  The series resumes with a pivotal game 2 next Tuesday night.
