The Matty Chronicles: Pizza Rises
What a slate of games we had on tap!
In what analysts are already calling the greatest comeback in the history of the game, The Mike Higgins returned to the ice! Manville Palace Pizza did not miss the opportunity to keep themselves in first place, staying 2 points ahead of Both Roman Law and Final Touch. At one point in the first game, Manville was actually down a goal, 2-1 with the Gary’s getting a goal each, Showtime and Ouilette that is. However, it wouldn’t take long for the Pizza to rise. The emotional spark Higgins provided was evident, as Pizza pressed. Dominic Assini would get the game winner and the insurance goal all in the second. It would be an entire third period of back and forth, one team thirsty for goals the other shutting down the fountain. Pizza takes the hard fought game 4-2.
In the second game of the night, Final Touch would come out flat and be behind early with a goal by Eric Campbell in his first shift. Jimmy Meegan would be the Touch’s saving grace with the next 2 goals, staying that way until late in the third. Roman would come back and score 2 with under 5 minutes to go. Meegan again would be the hero with less than a minute getting the puck to the point. Tommy Gaboriault would tip in the tying goal. Roman and Final touch, top of the board teams, would split the points and be tied for the second place spot behind the vaunted Manville Palace Pizza.
In the late game, Green Goddess would take it in the chin. Nick Miranda would get a hat trick for the gold. At the same time, Jay Cinq-Mars would get the game winner,“ The Magic Bullet", hitting McDonalds back shoulder and putting it in the opposite top corner. Shannon Cavarly would extend a goal scoring streak as well, getting one late in the game. Bran Roman, Derek Franco and Shane McCormick would score for the Green, but it would not be enough. Manny’s put it all together earlier and won 9-4. Manny’s keeps themselves in the conversation.
