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:
