Meatbirds Tie and Tie Again

As you can see below, after 11 weeks of occupying the top spot in the league, we have dropped down to a tie for first (and technically lose out due to Goals For).  I will take it up with Goguen as we have the head to head and differential, but we may be looking at 2nd place once again.

We were certainly “offensive”, offensively and could get very little going.  Gil and the defense kept us in this tight game, which was 1-0 until Gal tied it up late in the 3rd with a Recchi type scrum goal.  Ruel and Dun both had chances late but we could not slide one past and we ended tying a strong Hyundai squad 1-1.  Without 4 of our top 6 forwards, we mustered as much as we could.  Knight’s injury plagued year continued as his “Upper Body Injury” is still hampering the burly LW’s ability to stay on the ice.  Sully had Visa issues coming in from the Islands and was a late scratch.  Salty finished serving out his 2 game suspension for PED’s and illegal equipment.  But most concerning, Shawn contracted his 4th disease of the year (Lyme, Malaria, EEE and now Ebola) and was unavailable.  With medication arriving from the Congo tomorrow, he is expected back next week.

So, it comes down to the last game of the season.  I will confirm with Goguen what the tie breaker is, but let’s be prepared to run up the score against the lowly last place (and A-Holes of the league) Bulldogs next week.  As I said at the beginning of the season, if we are in 2nd place, we might as well be in last place.  The ownership will accept nothing less than “Meatbird’s Hockey” on the 2014 Monarch’s Senior League Championship Plaque that hangs in Goguen’s garage.

More importantly, is anyone up for tailgate after final game next week?
