Championship Weekend

Category : Uncategorized

Championship weekend was headlined by one predictable finish and one huge surprise.

The recreational division playoffs went as the regular season had gone. Mother Puckers defeated The Plague for the right to face Byrne Outs in the championship game. An exhausted Mother Pucker team fell in the final 3 – 0. Byrne Outs completed an outstanding season (only one loss) with their first league championship.

Competitive playoffs went off script according to regular season results. Bendy Bunch had a rough season of rotating goaltending and inconsistent attendance usually playing shorthanded. With a goalie and line up of 6 skaters this would be their weekend. Game one versus Bowhunters seemed to follow what had happened to them all season, give up too many goals early and find themselves too far behind to catch up. But they recovered in time to win in a shootout. The top seeded Tuttle Park All Stars were without their captain, Andrew Telfer and their starting goaltender, Nick Lane and it proved to be too much. Bendy Bunch took the game 5 – 2. They were just getting warmed up as they posted a shutout in a 9 – 0 championship game victory over

Congratulations to both Byrne Outs and Bendy Bunch!

Thank you to all the teams and players who make this league possible!

Wednesday Night League Championship

Category : Uncategorized

Eskimo Bros. (1) v. Bowhunters (2)

Just as happened the week prior the Bowhunters were coming into a second game of a double header facing the rested Eskimo Bros. Early it looked as though the Bowhunters would have an advantage as Richard Moritz had a skate break leaving the Eskimo Bros. short handed in the first period. BuZz Green of The Plague kindly provided Richard a skate so he could return to the game. Richard made the most of his return scoring a hattrick, leading the Eskimo Bros. to a 7 – 2 victory. Brett Chaffin, Nathan Yellon and Nick Lane each added a goal and an assist.

Nick Lane ended the season as the scoring leader (27 points) and the assist leader (11 points) while Brian McIntyre took the goal scoring title (17 goals). Top goaltender honors go to Aaron Hipwell with 8 wins and a 3.00 goals against average.

Thank you to all who came out and played. Here are some photos from the Championship Game:

Bowhunters v. Eskimo Bros. – G.O.W. – Week 5

Category : Uncategorized

This week’s Game-Of-The-Week comes from the Wednesday Night Ball League. Undefeated Eskimo Bros. faced the Bowhunters in the finale of the regular season. Bowhunters were in the second game of a twin bill having just squeaked by Plague 4 – 3 in the first game of the evening. After the first period it looked as if Eskimo Bros. were going to finish the season with an unblemished record as they had a 3 – 1 advantage. Five goals later the Bowhunters had a dominate 6 – 3 lead and held on for a 7 – 5 victory. Brian McIntyre had a hattrick as part of the 5 goal outburst that put Bowhunters ahead.

Next week is playoffs for the Wednesday Night Ball League and here is the schedule:

Mother Puckers v. Byrne Outs – G.O.W – Week 4

Category : Uncategorized

This week’s G.O.W. matches up a team that is brand new to the league (Mother Puckers) with a veteran team (Byrne Outs) who has been around since the start of ORH. Byrne Outs have been rolling through recreational division, while Mother Puckers have had their struggles. The game proved to be very competitive due to some early highlight reel saves by Isaac Lightle. But a pair of hattricks by Byrne Out goal scorers George Victory and Trevor DeWoody would ultimately be the difference in an 8 – 5 Byrne Out win.

In other new, Ryan Williamson, had 5 goals in the win over Bowhunters. He was convinced that was an ORH record. Sorry to break it to you Ryan, that record is 6 goals held by Jake Howell (Kangabrews) and Caleb Smith (Bowhunters). An impressive game, but not a record.

Here are photos from our Game-Of-The-Week:

Next week we are going to feature our Wednesday Night Ball League in the Game-Of-The-Week.

Speaking of Wednesday Night Ball League, it will be wrapping up soon. That means we have opened up registration once again for teams and individuals for Fall Session. Contact me at if you have questions about the league.

Byrne Outs v. The Plague – Week 3 G.O.W.

Category : Uncategorized

After an extended break due to 24 Hours of Hockey for Habitat, Independence Day and a rain out, ORH was back with a full day of hockey.

Our Game-Of-The-Week comes from our rec division in a match up of Byrne Outs and The Plague. While early on Ryan Williamson stood tall in net for The Plague, Byrne Outs goalie Aaron Hipwell posted a shutout (his first of 2 on the day). Byrne Outs were led by Boris Schneider’s 5 point game (3 goals, 2 assists) and cruised to a 7 – 0 victory. Check out the Box Score on our stats website.

Special thanks to all of the guys who came out early and stayed late to help out this week. It was a huge help getting the rink dry and allowed the league to run very smoothly.

While not participating in one of his three games, Ryan Williamson took over the ORH Instagram account. It included a few photos, a few videos and even a player interview. Thanks, Ryan, for the great work. Here is a great slow motion goal he captured:
