Wow, what can you say about last night's game? We came up against a team that was grossly overmatched, and that fact was exasperated by them also having an inexperienced goalie. Not much of a contest as we controlled the flow of the game for the entire three periods with an ending score of 11-0.
The Jimmy Ferraro Show: A new, probably unbreakable, Pirate record was established as Jimmy notched four goals, and three assists for an incredible 7-point night. This puts him well on the way to breaking the total single season Pirate scoring record of 11 points in a season (currently-held by Scott Miller).
The line of Ralz-Wildman-Goione opened the scoring :07 seconds into the game on a pass from Goione to Tim to Wildman for the 1-0 lead.
Incredibly, seven of nine Pirate skaters score a goal.
Dan DiPierro nets two goals, however the second was waved-off by the refs probably out of pity.
Harris quietly plays to his second consecutive shutout, not allowing a goal in six straight periods.
Roger didn't score on Harris, thus preserving the shutout.
Farkas states on the bench I just want to wind up one slapshot on this guy then goes out on the next shift and does just that for the goal.
And ... well ... you get the drift. Next week we face the much tougher task of taking on Team Micro to wrap-up the first third of the season. It would be nice to go into that break with a 3-1 record.
1) JIMMY FERRARO
For his scoring barrage. Now, if we can just keep him from re-negotiating his contract.
2) DAN DiPIERRO
For great two-way effort; he scores and gets back to play defense throughout the game.
3) DAVE MATTHEWS
A smart game defensively for young Mr. Matthews ...
