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
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."
