Week 10 - We have a new leader...

Previous Story
2022-11-20
After 2 wild weeks of action we've seen some major changes in the standings, 2 losses in a row for the previously league leading Ocelots means that we have a new #1 and therefore a new team with the target squarely on their backs, Potheads and Potter have ridden their balanced attack and exceptional goaltending from Jeff Squires to the top of the league, can they hold that spot with the Ocelots and Brewins currently locked with same number of points? Those 3 teams along with Dickens Cider have now clinched a top 8 A pool spot, 7 other teams are still in contention for the last 4 spots in the big dance, whatever happens we should see some great hockey down the stretch and in both the A and B pool playoffs. In the scoring race, Shawn Blais' seemingly insurmountable lead has been "surmounted" as he now sits tied with the red hot Brock Murray atop the leaderboard, they are 10 points clear of 3rd place so very likely a 2 man race to the end. On the ladies side it's been tight all season and continues to be that way, rookie Kortnie Legari has a 1 point cushion over both Ashley Clow and Kelly Brant so it's anybody's title still! For the goalies it's basically another 2 man race with Marc-Andre Lalonde and Jeff Squires separated by a hair in both GAA and Save%.

Check out the recaps for a more detailed look at the week that was:

Early hole too big for Baggers to climb out of as Brewins take shootout win

Not even 9 minutes into this opening game, the Sandbaggers were down 4-0 to the high-flying Brewins, and it was the same 4-goal deficit at the intermission, down 6-2. But to the Sandy ones' credit, they battled back and made a game of it thanks mostly their star captain Brock Murray 🎩🎩🎩🚨🍏🍏 racking up 6 points, which ties him for the league lead in points.
The Brewins were too much to overtake though as spare Jeff Murphy 🎩🎩🎩🍏 had 3G-1A, while captain Shawn Lemoine 🚨🚨🍏, Lynn Fournelle 🚨🚨🍏 and Steven Toste 🍏🍏🍏 each had 3 points in their 9-6 win.

9:00 - Autodraft All Stars 2 Tattrie's French Fries 1

MC is the "Hammer" for the All Stars again

After a goal-fest in the opening game, this one was a goalie battle between the Autodraft All Stars' MC Chartrand and Tattrie's French Fries' spare Steve Toste. About halfway through the 1st half, Junior Tattrie and co-captain Rich Tattrie sniped an unassisted tally. But a few minutes later, the All Stars' terrific trio of Dave Allston 🚨🍏, Frank Zic 🚨 🍏 and Ashley Clow 🍏🍏 combined on a beauty tic-tac-toe goal.
Then after a scoreless 19+ minutes in the 2nd half, that AllStar line poured on the pressure in the dying moments, and with just 12 ticks left on the clock, Ashley and Allston helped Zic bang home the game-winner, rewarding their goalie MC who denied 30 of 31 shots in the dramatic 2-1 victory.

9:50 - Wedding Crashers 8 Master Blasters 6

Crashers move to 3-1 with Bekkers in the lineup

In a wild game that saw 14 goals and no less than 5 lead changes, it was the Wedding Crashers' young star Eric Bekkers 🎩🎩🎩🍏🍏🍏🍏 who helped put his team up for good as he scored or assisted on 4 of their 5 unanswered goals in an 8-minute stretch in the latter part of the 2nd half. Those 4 points for Eric were a part of the 7 points he amassed in this contest as he had great chemistry with super spare Zach Verge 🎩🎩🎩🚨 🍏 who collected 4G-1A in this 8-6 win over theMaster Blasters.
On the losing side, co-captains Mona Le Blanc 🚨🚨🍏🍏 and Kelly Brant 🍏🍏🍏🍏 each picked up 4 points while Bradley McCarter 🚨🚨🍏 had 2G-1A.

Bubble gang going streaking with points in 3 of their last 4 games

After a low-scoring 1st half that saw On The Bubble and Les Goosebumps knotted up 1-1, there were 6 goals scored in the 2nd stanza. And with just under 7 minutes left to play, Bubbly and gritty playmaker Michelle Heggison 🚨🍏 forechecked hard, as she always does, and created a turnover, then she smartly dished a beauty pass to the slot where fireballer Bernie Car 🚨🚨🍏 absolutely mashed the mesh with his patented booming one-timer. That proved to be the game-winner in their5-3 (en) win.
Captain Sean Malloy 🚨🍏 also had 1G-1A for the winners, while Michel Sirois 🚨🍏 and Christina Osborne 🍏🍏 each had 2 points for the Goose gang.

11:30 - Potheads & Potter 8 Murphy's Law 4

The OFBHL has a new top team as P&P notch 5th straight win

With Potheads & Potter and Murphy's Law tied 1-1 early on, Potty playmaker Don Prior 🚨🚨🍏🍏 scored the first two of 5 straight goals for his squad, and they would ride that momentum the rest of the way en route to a solid 8-4 triumph.
Pothead captain Devin McManus 🚨🚨🍏🍏 also had 2G-2A and rookie Valerie Gies 🚨🍏🍏 had 1G-2A, while on the other side, Mike Zaborski 🚨🚨 and Patrick Auger 🚨🍏 each had 2 points.

Make it 2 straight losses for previously undefeated Ocelots as DC prove too much

Deadlocked 2-2 after the intermission, Dickens Cider's spare Ryan Hawkins 🎩🎩🎩 sniped a natural hat-trick to start the 2nd half. And his 3rd tally, on the power-play, would hold up to be the eventual game-winner in their narrow 5-4 win over The Ocelots.
Dicky masked man Devin McManus did allow 4 goals but many of his 40 saves were sensational, giving his team the chance to win, while their spare Zach Verge 🚨🍏🍏 got 1G-2A and feisty two-way player Isabelle Blondeau 🍏🍏 picked up 2 assists. In a losing effort, Steve Sicotte 🚨🍏🍏 and Shawn Blais 🚨🍏🍏 each had 1G-2A.

Chargers winless skid reaches 3 games as AH pull away late

In another high-scoring affair, and tale of two halves, Charge It To The Room had a slight 2-1 edge at the break. But after the teams traded a goal each in the opening 2 minutes of the 2nd half, Amateur captain Shawn Weatherdon 🚨 scored the 1st of his squad's 4 unanswered goals, including star Ryan Hawkins' 🎩🎩🎩 hat-trick marker, which was enough for them to hold on to a 7-4 (en) win.
Rookie Kortnie Legari 🍏🍏 picked up 2 assists for the winners, while captain Sean Frewen 🚨🍏, Mike Okell 🚨🍏, Zach Verge 🚨🍏 and Mona Le Blanc 🍏🍏 each had 2 points in a losing effort.
