28S, no. 1; newsletter by brooks)
Winning is a great feeling. Winning against a team that is supposed to be better is even better. Winning against a team that had you beaten down after the 1st period? Priceless.
That was the story on Sunday night. We played a Bruins team that was second in the “A” division last season and was hungry to get things going for the new season. We began with Brooks-Murf-Tim and LeMatty-Farkas-DiPierro up front, while Kevin, Gucci, Russ and (the always subbing) Joe Baio manned the blueline.
we started out like #@&*$ and when we finally got our heads out of our @$% we were down three goals after the 1st period. But oftentimes as I've seen during my short tenure as a Pirate, Harris stood on his head and kept us in it and gave us the all-important chance to win — and we took advantage of it. During the final period we scored four unanswered goals: Farkas, LeMatty, LeMatty (assist to Kevin), and Farkas (assist to Lematty). The most important thing though, was that we didn't give the lead away once we had it. I thought we showed a lot of heart and considering we were without our best offensive player, Tony (Yes, Tony, i gave you your due even though you weren't even there). Without a doubt this was a great way to begin the new season ... but we have a long road ahead.
