Looking Back at Week 6 and Ahead to Week 7
Category : Uncategorized
The rain held off but the temperatures soared. It was The Plague’s week to play a twin bill. In their first game they pushed a short handed GeriHattricks team but ultimately fell 6 – 5. Four different players found the back of the net for The Plague while Adam Barnett led the GeriHattricks with 3 goals and 2 assists.
While The Plague rested between games, Decapitators and Byrne Outs faced off in an iron man game, with only 4 skaters a side. A close game was claimed by Decapitators led by Caleb Smith’s 2 goals and 1 assist, in his first game out from behind the goalie mask. Nate Tarr had a point on every Byrne Outs goal collecting a goal and 2 assists.
The last game of the day was not kind to The Plague. A fresh Tuttle Park team kept the score keeper busy with a 14 – 1 victory.

Next weeks schedule (July 30) is as follows:
9:30: Byrne Outs v. GeriHattricks
10:30: The Plague v. Byrne Outs
11:30: Tuttle Park All-Stars v. Decapitators
Tuttle Park and the Decapitators both took care of business in week 6 to set up a head-to-head winner-take-all game where the winner will take the top seed in the playoffs. Decapitators currently hold the tie breaker with a win earlier in the season over the All-Stars 5 – 3.
The GeriHattricks are the only team locked into their playoff spot, win or lose, at the 3 seed.
Byrne Outs have the double header and a single win or 2 overtime losses would give them the 4 seed, while two losses could push them to the 5 seed.
Playoff Schedule will be posted July 31.
