NoGame one of the evening would bring us the Herrings taking on the River Kings. Captain Dougherty of the Kings had been holding secret practices and making his team watch game footage for the two weeks leading up to this game. We would soon find out if these extra efforts would pay off. The ball would drop and the rumble would start. Only Six minutes into the game “Byng Mcgovern” would connect with “Mr.Incredible” and give the Herrings a shocking one goal lead. The teams would retire to the bench for the first intermission. During the Intermission, Captain Dougherty, of the Kings, would pick up a picnic bench and throw it over the rink. The second period would begin and the Herrings would continue their methodical march over the Kings. Veteran Defense man “Hannibal Harrington” (HELLO CLARICE!) would receive a pass from “Mr.Lloyd” and quickly give the Herrings a two goal lead. The kings would respond to this goal by having substitute defenseman “Hunter Maraschino” launch the ball out of the court for a delay of game penalty. Moments later “Mad Dog Elliot” would receive a matching penalty and join his teammate in the penalty box. With the Herrings now having a 4 on 2 advantage, they would finish the River Kings off. “Mr.incredible” would strike again and give his team a comfortable 3-0 lead. Both teams would add a third period period goal and the Herrings would secure their spot in second place in the league.
Game 2 of the night would bring us the most highly anticipated game of the season. The Shadows, led by “Marcus Toolbox” would be taking on The Other Team led by “B D Jacobsen”. The ball would drop and The Other Team would strike first. Power forward “Jimmy J” would charge down the court and give his team a 1-0 lead. Only two minutes later the Shadows would put on a relentless assault. Garrison, Tyler and “LJ the Giant” would serve up three unanswered goals to take the Shadows to the first intermission with a 3-1 lead. The second period would bring us the exact opposite results. High priced talent Eric Leduc would record an early second period goal for the Shadows and then The Other Team would score three unanswered goals from “Jimmy J” and ” Hunter Maraschino”. The teams would retire to the second intermission with the score 4-4 and the game up for grabs. The third period would begin and the teams would battle like a Roman tug of war match. Finally, with under two minutes to play “Mike K Deez” of the Shadows would find the back of the net and gain his team their first win of the season.
