29S, no. 2; newsletter by brooks)
Playing an “A”-division team is always a measuring stick for how good a “B” squad is. So it was no surprise that we were amped-up to play the Bulldogs. They have a solid line-up and a good goalie so we had our hands full right from the drop of the puck.
We would break out to a surprisingly quick 2-0 lead on goals by LeMatty (assist brooks) and Brooks (unassisted) ... but it would be shortlived. The mighty Bulldogs would rattle-off five unanswered goals to take a 5-2 lead.
Part of being a good team is never giving up though, and we would scratch and claw our way back on goals by Tim (assist Brooks) and Brooks (assist Gucci). Trailing now by just one goal, we would get a couple of golden opportunities in the final 1:00-minute to tie it up: First, Kevin was stopped point-blank, and then Brooks would miss the net on the shortside with just seconds remaining. We accepted the challenge though, and played a great game in front of Doug Collimore who made several good stops to keep us in it.

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING ...
A judge overturned a recent decision and found that operating a Zamboni while intoxicated is not considered drunk driving. I wonder if this means that #67 will be trading in his truck.
