Pacific Rink Ultimate Hockey Bag Campaign on KickStarter

Category : Uncategorized

I’ve never backed a project on KickStarter before. I’ve come close a couple of times, but never clicked the ‘Back This Project’ button.

Now I can say I am the backer of a project.  I am looking forward to having both of these bags in September.  I must admit I am a little nervous backing a project rather than purchasing a product. I will let you know how the whole KickStarter experience goes.  Anyone out there ever back something on KickStarter?  How was your experience? Here is the link to this project if you want in too: Pacific Rink Ultimate Hockey Bag

Scoring Eruption in Week 3

Category : Uncategorized

In week 3 the temperature stayed hot as the scoring heated up.

In the first match up the goals came early and fast. The Tuttle Park All-Stars had four skaters with hat tricks.  The Plague featured 5 first time skaters and showed signs of life late with a pair of goals.  The overwhelming attack of Tuttle Park carried them to a victory in the first half of their double header.

Byrne Outs faced off against Decapitators in the second tilt of the day. While Byrne Outs debuted new jerseys Decapitators jumped out to a 5 goal lead eventually winning by a 6-2 score.  Andy Burnheimer led the Decapitators with a hat trick while Brett Chaffin extended his goal scoring streak to 3 games, putting up both goals for the Byrne Outs.

The finally pitted the GeriHattrick versus Tuttle Park All-Stars on the second leg of double header.  An early one goal lead for the ‘Hattricks was erased quickly by a second period 6 goal scoring spree that saw a natural hat trick by captain Andrew Telfer.  Late goals by the GeriHattricks made the score look much closer than the game actually was, with a final of 8 – 4.

The sweep of their double header vaulted the Tuttle Park All-Stars into first place in the standings with a 3 – 1 record.

Week 2 Action

Category : Uncategorized

Everyone came back for week 2!  Sometimes its the small victories that matter.  Two match ups in week two.

First up, Tuttle Park All-Stars v. Decapitators.  A very close game all the way found us with a 3 – 3 tie late in the 3rd period.  After being bottled up the entire game, Evan Brown found some space and buried two goals to capture the game for the Decapitators.

In the second match up Brett Chaffin’s pair of goals led the Byrne Outs past The Plague by the score of 4 – 2.

Here is week 2’s photographic evidence for all the wives and girlfriends that we were actually playing hockey:

A Hot Start

Category : Uncategorized

After rain pushed back the start of league play we were greeted with 90 degree weather.  To say it was a hot start was no exaggeration.

In the first game of the morning the GeriHattricks and Decapitators battled in a tight match with Ryan Williamson proving to be the difference in goal for the GeriHattricks’ 3 – 1 victory.

Game 2 saw the Tuttle Park All-Star jump out to a 3 – 0 lead. The Byrne Outs came back with back-to-back goals by Nate Tarr and Brett Chaffin to cut the lead to 3 – 2.  Time ran out on the Byrne Outs come back as Nick Lane held off a furious attempt to tie the game in the waning minutes to secure the victory for the Tuttle Park All-Stars.

The final game of the day was the second leg of a GeriHattricks double header versus The Plague.  Both teams were skating short handed and the real winner seemed to be the heat.  Parker Furbee led the ‘Hattricks with a hat trick of his own plus an assist in a 7 – 2 victory. Some of the action captured from The Plague v. GeriHattricks:
