Granite Skaters take down the Good Divers, 4-3.

The green Good Neighbors fell more than just on the scoreboard on Friday, as the Granite Skaters showed up with a full compliment of C players and slipped by the GN's 4-3.

The Montreal Canadiens were in town for the NHL playoffs, but who knew that the diving would ooze as far north as Saugus on Friday morning.

New guy Trevor Legere put the green team up 1-0 when he tipped home a Brian Leslie shot. That's how the first ended. Then the diving started.

Steve Kaneb attempted to hook Mike Saia. Mike appeared to be skating fine, then just fell down. A hook and a dive were called on the play. Only one guy on either team had a problem with the call, and that was Mike himself.

"Even if he didn't dive, you don't let Kaneb of all people take you down," said Lloyd Johnston. "It's a matter of pride to stay on your feet. And this coming from a Canadian."

Late in the 2nd Eric Bratt jammed home a rebound through the legs of Rollie the Goalie, and it was tied 1-1 headed to the third.

Quick goals by defensemen Ted Miller and Russ Steeves cancelled each other out. Comrican then scored on a long blast, but Saia tapped home a rebound to tie it at 3-3.

It went down to the final minute where T2 Todd Twombly blasted one past Rollie with 32 seconds left to give the Granite Skaters a 4-3 win.

"I really don't want to look at this boxscore," said Steve Hardy. "Bratt, Saia, Miller, and T2 with goals. We just don't have any good players anymore do we?"

After two weeks all teams are now 1-1.
