10/29/06 vs. Outcasts (1-1-0)
The Outcasts significantly upgraded their team recently finding more offensive firepower and some stability on the back end as well. Coming into week 3, their record was 1-1, but they had already scored more goals in 2 games, than they did in their first four of the previous season.
On the side however, we were still struggling to find our offense scoring only twice in our first two games. On the positive side, we were 1-1 as well and we had only given up 5 goals. We expected this would be a tough contest and it lived up to those expectations.
Scoring late in the first period, we took a 1-0 lead into the second, in a tight defensive game. We knew the next goal would be a big one. As is our habit, we had a parade to the penalty box in the second period. Despite two 5-on-3’s, we eventually scored that huge second goal to increase our lead to 2-0 after two periods.
Midway through the third, we got the backbreaking goal and cruised on to victory as we finally attained our three goals.
Congrats again to Josh on his second consecutive shutout, he defintely earned this one.
Final Score: 3-0
Next week, Black Jacks.
