Tigers blown out in reg season finals, 8-4.


The Bulldogs and Tigers were just playing out the string before the playoffs begin right after the Thanksgiving break. One team was tuning up for the playoffs, while the  other was tuning up for breakfast.

"We relish the underdog role," said Tripp Talbot. "We even got the George Anderson downgrade earlier this season. So we are truly going to need a Christmas miracle to win the whole thing."

"I just like relish," commented Rick Armand.

The red team ran out to a 4-0 lead before most of the Tigers were even out of the locker room.

"I thought it was a joke when I saw 4 goals on the board and I hadn't even taken a shift yet," said Dan McCarthy. "Now I know why guys purposely show up late."

Armand's fading chance at a scoring title had a small glimmer of hope when he netted two to get the Tigers back in it, briefly.

When Mike Cormican scored (finally) to make it 5-2, that was pretty much that.

Andy Long showed up for the blowout too, scoring two meaningless goals in the 2nd.

"Aren't all his goals meaningless?' quipped Jon Morin.

Speaking of Morin, he chipped in two of the eight for the Bulldogs. As much as long, just with less talking about them.

Neither team scored in the third, as the race for turkey at the breakfast table began early.

The Dogs will take on the Ducks in round one, while the lowly Tigers take on the top seeded Sun Devils and top scorer Tony Onello.
