27W, no. 9; newsletter by b.n.)
On a night when a green Wednesday followed a purple Tuesday, one could not help but think of an orange trout swimming in a golden river.
A deep, dark river ... With thick branches overhead, tickling the lapping waves. And sea cucumbers as big as Cadillacs ... But before I go any further, kudos to Russ for scoring the first and last goal of the night, and Tony who scored the second and fourth. And of course, Brooks, who like the golden river, is full of trout. Or something like that ...
For the record, here's the scoring summary:
1st russ (#67)
1st tony (nick)
1st period: 2-1 Pirates. Highlights: Russ scoring in opening minute and Tony getting his tally at the 18:30 for the quick 2-0 lead. Lowlights: The Feeders scored a SHG.
And here's the final 22:00 at-a-glance:
3rd brooks (tony)
3rd tony (brooks)
3rd russ (none)
final: 5-3. Highlights: We won. Lowlights: They scored with 1:50 remaining to keep it interesting.
date of game: 11.15.06
