THE WHITE SNAILS EVEN THE SERIES.
January 3, 2009
Over sixty players took part in the ninth annual New Year’s Day event. It appears most of the players were in early on New Year’s Eve as the tempo of the games were more fitting for a younger group. The fast pace of the first game even got Harry to move his feet. The North team took a 3-2 lead into the final five minutes of the game highlighted by spectacular goaltending by both Steve Hatch and Tom Walsh. On paper the North squad’s Jim Toomey was on his way to being the game MVP as he and Steve Jones worked their magic. But a missed defensive assignment by an aging Indian (a Milton boyo) let the one legged Paul Powers tie the game with his second of three goals. Two minutes later the UNH flash iced the game and the MVP trophy as he completed his hat trick at 1:28 of the third period. Upon review of the tapes it was brought to the commish’s attention that the MVP recipient had lost his helmet sometime prior to scoring the game winning goal and a protest was lodged by the North squad. The tapes have been sent to the assistant commissioner Wally the Turtle and we will have to wait for his decision to post a final score. Hold Your Tickets….
The North squad redeemed themselves in the second game as they squeaked out a 4-2 victory in another game with superior goaltending as Dave Phoenix and Bob Bishop came in with very strong performances. Tom Cassidy finally broke the ice with his two goals in the last four minutes of the second period. It took one Milton boy’s (Flash Flaherty) leadership to bail out his homey’s miscue from the previous game. Flash used Captain Red Maher sparingly throughout the game to save his aging legs so the crafty veteran would be available for a possible shootout.
With the exception of the Big Red captain (the other Powers) who had a hard time teaching his defensemen to count to five, a good time was had by all as many reconvened at the local establishment to await Wally’s announcement.
White Snails Over 60 Champs...could this be the start of a Dynasty ?
THE WHITE SNAILS CAME UP BIG FOR THE PLAYOFFS, BEATING THE BLACK CRABS BY A SCORE OF 7-4 ON SUNDAY MAY 4TH.
TIMING MAY HAVE BEEN THEIR BIGGEST ASSETS AS THE LEAGUE LEADING SCORER, GEORGE MURPHY, OF THE BLACK CRABS, WAS IN REHAB AFTER SUCCESSFUL KNEE SURGERY. THE LEAGUE’S TOP SCORING LINE OF MURPHY, CITRONI & WALKER WAS UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE ON THEIR OPPORTUNITIES WITHOUT THE MOTIVATING MURPHY. THE WHITE SNAILS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THEIR GOOD FORTUNE WHEN AFTER GETTING A LEAD IN THE SECOND PERIOD, THE CAGEY VETERANS WENT INTO THEIR “DUMP AND DON’T CHASE” PREVENT DEFENSE FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE GAME. AFTER WINNING ONLY TWO GAMES DURING THE SPRING SEASON, THE SNAILS OVER CAME A 7-1 LEAD BY THE CRABS IN THE LAST LEAGUE GAME TO TIE 9-9, GIVING THEM THE CONFIDENCE THEY NEEDED FOR THE PLAYOFFS.
THE INAUGURAL SEASON FOR THIS NEW DIVISION WAS ENJOYED BY THIRTY FIVE PLAYERS WHO HAD THE CHANCE TO BE “THE KID” AGAIN.
THE SIXTY AND SEVENTY YEAR OLDS PROVED THAT GIVEN THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT THEY CAN STILL ENJOY THE GAME THEY LOVE TO PLAY.
APPLICATIONS FOR NEXT SEASON WILL BE SENT OUT DURING THE SUMMER TO ALL EXISTING PLAYERS. ANY NEW PLAYERS SHOULD CALL THE RINK 781-233-3666 FOR AN APPLICATION. E-MAIL – HTUSAINC@AOL.COM
