Hard work helps Bored Members advance.

Bored Members 5  Granite Skaters 3

The deck was stacked against the depleted navy Granite Skaters. Though they kept it close, their fate was sealed weeks ago when team vacations were announced.

After a scoreless first period, the navy team had some hope, even more so when the 2nd ended 2-2. But the red Bored Members put the game and the series away in the third outscoring the GS's 3-1 for the 5-3 final.

Some game notes.

The Bitch put on a show accidentally scoring 2 goals for the Skaters but Ben Minsk never seemed to get comfortable in this one and with Brian Armand playing D in front of him how could he?

"I felt I owed it to the boys to do something positive after losing 19 of 20 draws and hitting the post on a layup earlier in the game" said Todd "don't call me Bernie" Nichols after his highlight reel quadruple deflection goal from the side of the net proved to be the game winner.

John Ambrosino almost finished off a nice pass from his mini-me, JA, only to be foiled by...well, himself...as he whiffed and fell on his face. Thankfully his padded under shirt allowed him to bounce right back up and into his usual position behind the play.

"While Coach Onello was at a Save the Bills rally, Coach Breed was golfing and Coach Armand was driving Zach to a Tony Robbins leadership seminar I made a couple key changes that worked out for us" said Co-Co-Co-Co-Coach Bill Osbahr referring to his decision to leave Murph off the game 2 roster and switching under performing Richard Breed to the wing from center where he was awful for the Members in game 1.

The Bored Members will play in the Coffee Cup game next Friday against the last place Good Neighbors, after the Neighbors upset the first place Long Shots.

"This is gonna be the easiest Cup I ever won," said Rick Armand. "We might even give everyone a regular shift next week."
