October 22

Votta Properties versus Green Goddess to start the game night off. Votta got the first one on the board at 5 minutes in. Mike Bragan closed the deal with Joe Martin and Mark Kosinski on the helpers. In the second it was the white gloves show. Kosinski would score early and often. Off the face off in the second, from Shooter and Tunes.  A couple of minutes later, Kosinski would get the high tip from the blue line shot of Mike Bonin. Bonin collected the down up from Bragen. Last but not least for the white glove sombrero, Antunes setting him up for push it to 4-0. I heard there was somebody saying shut out, shut out, on the purple bench. That was the jinx, as Jimmy Meegan would pop the shut out bubble, set up by Al Whitton and Neil Yee. 4-1 Votta takes the win.

In game 2 Final touch brought the thunder and Steve Albertelli. And he would not disappoint getting the first and second goal 14 seconds apart. He was set up by Rich Laplante, Jim Galvin and Dan Clare. Clare would set up Rich Laplante and Albertelli for goal number 3. That would be the first period 3-0. Early in the second Jim Galvin would make it 4-0. Ahhh but wait, Vescera was going away that easy. Jay Arruda would get on the board with the help of Paul Praderio and Rob Edelman. Edelman would make even more interesting with a goal of his own. Unfortunately, nothing happened in the third for either team, except the goaltending was awesome on both ends. In the end, Final Touch would get the big win, 4-2.

In the late game, Manville Pizza is on a tear. The rink was full of Dussaults, one in net, one skating and one scoring keeping. Early on it was a tight game. In the late part of the first Shane McCormick would get the pizza on the board, set up by Pizzo. In the second, Rick Mercuri would take advantage and pop the puck in making it 2-0 MPP. Quick Dam would not give in, a goal by Anthony Lisi, set up by Shawn Smith and Ed Cardoso. Cutting into the lead. In the third, deja vu all over again, as Lisi from Smith and Cardoso tied it up. And then the dam broke. Nick Nardone would start the attack. Right off the face off, McCormick would get another. Krunelis would get on the board. Then it would by Nardone again. Krunelis would clean it up, making it 8-2, Manville for the win.

Great night of hockey for some, not so much for others. In the end, the beer was cold and the company was stellar. Always a great time at the rink. Love you people.
