SATURDAY GAMES - September 20, 2014

9:00am
MUCK DOGS 9  GREEN JACKETS 8   FOT

The day opened up with a great matchup, as the Dogs and Jackets each took turns with the lead.
Six goals in the 3rd by the Dogs had them up 8-7 late. But with 12 seconds left, Kevin McGovern tied it with a PPG to force OT.

In OT it took Greg Wood all of 15 seconds to get the ball and score the GW for the Muck Dogs as they move on.

10:00am - Wildcard Game
RUBBER DUCKS 9  BARONS 0   F

These teams did not meet in the regular season. And today they really didn't meet either. Ironically the two teams with the worst attendance had just about everyone show up.

Jim Celeste, yes that Celeste, subbed in for Grasso and shutout the Barons 9-0. The Barons are protesting the game, for what reason we don't know why. But if it makes them feel better...

11:00am
SPIKES  14  RUBBER DUCKS 6   F

The Spikes crushed the Ducks earlier in the season, and all the sleepless nights this week about who would show up for the Ducks didn't amount to a pee hole in the snow.

There was some cheating though as the Spikes ran goalie Jim Celeste twice, which prompted immediate action by the league with a new Goalie Interference rule to be announced later this week.

12noon - Wildcard Game
FLYING SQUIRRELS 6  SNAPPERS 5   F

The Squirrels and Snappers met at noon, and turned in a better game than we all expected. RVB had 3 goals for the Snappers as team leading scorer Jim Morill did not bring his A game.

But that was overshadowed by the sub for Jay Rizzo. Yes Scott Fowler had 5 goals for the Squirrels, providing nearly all their offense. A late rally just fell short for the Snappers.

1:00pm
JAMMERS 10  FLYING SQUIRRELS 5   F

The Jammers got by the Squirrels with ease earlier in the season, then again so did everyone else. With Caeren subbing for Jay Rizzo in this one, um well, it didn't matter.

The Jam ran out to a 5-1 first period lead and didn't look back. Even the slumping Sully had a good game for the winners.

2:00pm
PELICANS 5   DIGGERS 4   FOT

The day ended with another OT thriller. A low scoring affair with Sopp and Evangelista going save for save in the nets.

Special teams played a part in this one as the Diggers had a SHG and the Pelicans a PPG. After 3 periods nothing was decided.

In OT Liam thought he scored, but Dave Messuri was in the crease and the goal wouldn't count. A few minutes later though Liam scored again, and the Pelicans win in a minor upset.

Stars of the week

First Star Second Star Third Star
Liam Spinicci - Pelicans

He didn't just score once in overtime, he scored twice.
Jim Celeste - Ducks sub goalie

A playoff shutout is a playoff shutout, even if it's in the Wildcard Game.
Rob VanBuskirk - Snappers

Good to see RBV back in action after a hockey camp in India. It paid off with a 3 goal game, though in a 6-5 loss.
