The battle lines were drawn and the stage set for Week 2 of the Flagler Youth Hockey fall dek league on Saturday.
Game one saw the Blue team take on the Red team. Blue struck first, but Red came back quickly. The see-saw battle continued until the teams entered the last minute of play tied. The game seemed destined for overtime until a long-shot from the Red team’s Angel S found the corner of the net, providing the game-winning goal with only 3 seconds remaining.
Game two featured the Purple team taking on Blue. Seeking redemption after their first game, Blue struck early and often, quickly jumping to a 3-0 lead. But Purple wasn’t ready to give in yet, and fought back, scoring a trio of their own. But on this day the game belonged to Blue as their big and small players found the openings in the net 6 times, for the 6-3 win.
Game three put the Red team back in action against Purple. The hard-fought battle swung back-and-forth for a time, as both teams battled it out in the corners and in front of the net. Purple’s offense brought play to the crease of the Red net time and again, but thanks to solid defense, and some very lucky bounces, Red held on to win this one 6-4.
It was a great week and we were happy to see everyone out there! Please check the schedule, and we’ll look forward to seeing everyone again next Saturday!
