The Leaders Separate themselves in Week 5

Category : Uncategorized

With two weeks left the top teams have separated themselves and set up the ultimate showdown with a head-to-head match up in the season finally.

In game one of the morning Tuttle Park All-Stars claimed victory over the GeriHattricks with the leagues leading goal scorer, Andrew Telfer, in net stopping goals rather than scoring them. Matt Hannon had a hat trick, his second of the season to lead the All-Stars to victory.

After an 11 – 3 victory last week the Decapitators faced off in a rematch with The Plague. The score was lopsided with the Decapitators winning 7 – 0 in a game that was much closer than the score suggested. Evan Brown, the league’s points leader, racked up 3 more goals.

By far the most competitive game of the week saw the GeriHattricks skate the second game of a double header versus the Byrne Outs.  It was a back-and-forth affair that the Byrne Outs led 4 – 2 with six minutes remaining. That was just enough time for the Hattricks to mount a comeback behind goals by Zach Briggs, Cary Smith and the game winning clapper by Parker Furbee with just over a minute left.

Below are the visuals from Week 5, including a video that proves that the more time you give Tom Townsend to think about his shot the better chance he has to miss the net completely. Enjoy:
