2W, no. 4; newsletter by h.s.)
Our game against the Jags B went better than against the Jags A, although we were hard-pressed to find differences in their roster. They scored in the first 27 seconds on a shot that, I believe, must have actual transported itself through my right pad. In any case, they led 1-0 until Dan DiPierro (usually a Sunday-only Pirate) popped in a rebound over the sprawling goalie during a powerplay. The Jags regained the lead until Jim and Russ pressed down ice Russ got the goal, Jim got the assist. We carried the 2-2 tie into the first break.
The Jags regained the lead 3-2, but we continued to press until a chip-pass at center off was knocked away by a Jag who found a hole for breakaway. This play was followed by Russ' version of Bobby Orr's famous flying through the air photograph, as he dove about 2 minutes too late after the Jag who slapped the shot in. That goal, with just 2:00 minutes left in the 2nd, took our momentum away and we went in the second break trailing 4-2.
The Jags added a pair of goals (including a PPG) in the 3rd.
1) DAN DiPIERRO
For filling-in on a Wednesday and getting his first goal.
2) RUSS NICOLOSI
For another goal (and this guy is playing D).
3) ROGER WEISS
For holding the fort and bailing me out a bunch of times (again).
