Summer Session #2 Has Started!
Category : Uncategorized
As the title suggests, another great season of Ohio Roller Hockey has begun. Here is what happened this week (August 21).
Decapitators v. Byrne Outs
Both of these teams exited the playoffs with some level of disappointment. Byrne Outs were ousted in the first round by The Plague while Decapitators were on the wrong end of a 10-4 Championship Game loss. Chad Hammond had the Decapitators looking good early with a 4-0 lead only to see Byrne Outs thunder back to take a tightly contested 7-5 victory. Five of the seven skaters for Byrne Outs had a goal in a balanced scoring attack.
GeriHattrick v. The Plague
Following their trend, GeriHattricks took a lead into the 3rd period only to see it disappear. An upgraded Plague team led by Wes Christ (with 3 goals) took a one goal advantage to the final minute. Just as the GeriHattricks goalie was being called off for an extra skater, Adam Barnett found the equalizer to force the first overtime game in ORH history. A shootout was not in the cards as Cary Smith buried the game winner with less than a minute left in OT.
