3S, no. 3; newsletter by h.s.)
Coming off a 3-game Sunday/Wednesday losing streak (where we were outscored by opponents 18-2), last night's game was crucial to getting us back on track. After a Saturday practice, we looked pretty sharp with opening goals by Wildman (assist by Ralz) and an unassisted score by Russ. The 1st period ended 2-0 thanks to superb "D" by Dan and Roger.
At the start of the second, The Mud Dogs converted their fourth breakaway (a 3-on-0!) for their only tally, but that goal made it 2-1. Russ answered back with his second of the night (assist by returning Pirate Jimmy Ferraro, subbing for Dave Matthews) to give us back our two goal lead.
We added two more goals in the 3rd period (the first by Jimmy w/ the assist to Wildman) and the final score of the night by Ralz, with the assist going to Jimmy).
1) JIMMY FERRARO
After a season-off to recuperate, Jimmy had a 3-point outing including a goal and two assists.
2) TIM HAND
For great movement in the offensive zone. He finished w/ an assist on the first goal and scored the fifth.
3) DAN POMPHREY
For his rock-solid defense. The Mud Dogs couldn't penetrate the right side across the blueline all night.
