14S, no. 1; newsletter by c.g.)
How the &^%#@^*% do I follow up Brian's newsletter from last week? (shakes head). I'm not sure, so I will just jot down a few thoughts about this past
weeks game ....
The Pirates settled in for a Memorial Day contest against the Dire Wolves this past weekend. We had a short bench as three of our regulars could not attend, due to the weekends festivities; this left us with four forwards and three defenseman. The forwards consisted of Farkas, Russ, LeMatty, and Goione, while the defensive chores were handled by Farrell, Kevin, and Scooby, with Harris naturally manning the pipes.
The Pirates controlled the game from the start as Goione poked a loose puck past the Wolves goalie shortly into the contest, and they never looked back. There were some pretty goals scored, as Farkas completed the wraparound, Russ converted two nice tic-tac-toe plays, and Scott LeMatty completed his patented deke move past a stunned Wolves goalie. Goione would bookend the scoring with a driving to the net goal after a perfect pass from
The real strength of the night was the Pirates passing as the team moved the puck with ease, connecting on numerous open man passes. This was a game of puck control, and the Pirates had the puck well in hand. As time ran out the Pirates had a commanding 6-1 victory to start the season.
1) CHRIS GOIONE
For his two goals and, of course, accepting the A in a solemn ceremony at the beginning of the game.
2) RUSS NICOLOSI
For a 4-point outing.
3) GLENN FARKAS
For the GWG (one he got by successfully calling for the puck from a Dire Wolves defenseman)!
