Super Session Saturday. An epic marathon of roller hockey for the lines of history. And now the stats it yielded, thick enough to drop a donkey.
It was a perfect day for roller hockey. The beer was cold, the temperature was perfect, and it was all Old School. The first three games some rust was brushed off, some nets were moved around, and the statistics were discarded due to abnormally high and unacceptably numerous anomalies. Then we got down to business.
The first series: Old School Vs. New School (Lorne, Joern, Stefan, Lee, Bernie vs. Seamus, Ollie, Justin, Laird): This best of five series was absolute New School domination. Justin and Seamus led the way scoring 8 goals each. Between them, they had more goals than the entire Old School team had points! Series swept 3-0.
The 2nd Series: Canucks Fans vs. Lamers, I mean, Flamers. Canucks Fans (Lorne, Lee, Ollie, and Laird) vs. Flamers (Justin, Bernie, Seamus, Joern, and Stefan): Another series of domination, this time by Lee, Lorne and Ollie. Although Justin played well, brilliantly at times, the onslaught of shots from Lee and Lorne was too much. Together they outshot Team Flamers more than 2:1. Sweep 2-0.
The 3rd Series: Urban (Stefan, Joern, Lorne, Justin) vs. Rural (Lee, Seamus, Bernie, Ollie, Laird): It looked as if this series, too, Rural fans would be breaking out the brooms. Team Urban fell behind the best of 5 2-0 and was down game 3 3-0. But when all hope was lost Joern found his game and Justin lost his. Storming back like some kind of atomic hurricane team Urban scored 5 straight goals to win game 3 5-3 and then crushed team Rural to win next two. Total devastation, total collapse, but great hockey.
All told, over 6 hours of straight hockey. 13 games in total, 10 recorded. A super session to be sure. Thanks for the great games guys, good to see you again!
Burton Cup: Seamus leads Republic of Ireland into first ahead of the Falcons while the Originals finally show up in Burton in 2005 debuting in seventh thanks to Lorne, who opens up the Fauquier classification in first. Seamus jumps to second in the individual classification while Lorne debuts seventh.
