Week 5 – Playoff Picture Comes into Focus

Category : Uncategorized

Week 5 action included double headers by both The Plague and GeriHattricks. GeriHattricks led off the action versus Byrne Outs.

GeriHattricks v. Byrne Outs

Byrne Outs managed to do what no other team has done this session, keep the leagues leading goal scorer, Adam Barnett, from tallying a goal. Their bid for the win however, came up short in a 3 – 2 loss. Jack Baker led the GeriHattricks with two goals and an assist, while George Victory had both Byrne Out goals.

The Plague v. GeriHattricks

GeriHattricks had 4 different goal scorers and Ryan Williamson had his first ORHC shutout. The Plague played solid defense the entire way but had little in the way of scoring chances. With these two wins GeriHattricks continue to hold the top spot in the standings.

Decapitators v. The Plague

Walter Stepanenko made his case for player of the week with 3 goals and 4 assists. Once again The Plague could not muster much in the way of scoring opportunities and Decapitators cashed in early and often with their chances. In the shadow of Walt’s 7 point game, Caleb Smith quietly finished with 5 points (2 goals, 3 assists).

While relaxing on the bench I snapped a few photos, here are the best:

Week 4 – Two Close Games

Category : Uncategorized

There were no double headers this week and the competition level was high.

The Plague v. Byrne Outs

After showing up with an army of skaters last week, The Plague had just 5 skaters. But they were facing a Byrne Outs team with only 5 skaters as well. Chris Hand opened the scoring for The Plague in this back-and-forth affair. A 2 – 2 tie was broken in the third period when a bouncing ball struck Steve Schuster and found the back of the net. Byrne Outs pull their goalie and kept the pressure on trying to find the equalizer. Captain Buzz Green iced the game with a full court empty net goal as The Plague skated to a 4 – 2 victory.

Decapitators v. GeriHattricks

If the first game wasn’t competitive enough game two featured the two teams at the top of the standings. This game didn’t disappoint. Neither team could hold a lead and the game ended regulation and overtime in a 5 – 5 tie. Even a four skater shootout couldn’t decide this one, it took six rounds. Tom Townsend buried his 6th round shot and Ryan Williamson stopped Caleb Smith’s last attempt to give the GeriHattricks the win and a lead in the standings. League scoring leader Adam Barnett had 2 goals and 3 assist.

Week 3 Update – The Halfway Mark

Category : Uncategorized

This week featured two double headers and would officially get us to the halfway mark in the season.

Byrne Outs v. Decapitators

This was the second time these two teams met this season with Byrne Outs taking the first match up 7 – 5. Aaron Hipwell was missing in net this week for Byrne Outs and the Decapitators rudely welcomed substitute goalie Isaac Lightle to the ORHC by putting up 12 goals. The rubber match will be on October 2.

Decapitators v. The Plague

On the second leg of a double header the Decapitators met an army of players as The Plague had a full bench. The Plague played defense by committee and held Decapitators at bay, but lacked the scoring necessary to come away with the victory, falling 4 – 2.

The Plague v. GeriHattricks

While The Plague had an advantage with a long bench the 5 GeriHattrick skaters were entering the game fresh. Brad Mehl had three points (1 goal, 2 assists) to lead the ‘Hattricks to a 5 – 1 victory.
