Howitzers pull pin on the Grenades, 5-2.

The navy team scored three times before Murph arrived in the other rink, and they were off and running to an easy 5-2 win.

After last week's 4-3 nailbiter, the navy team was glad to have Darren Aizanman in the lineup.

"Now I don't have to play with Gambale and Teal again," noted Rick Armand. "I'll stick them on the Ragu line."

The plan worked to perfection. Marc Teal had the first goal, followed by Gambale setting up Ragu for goal number two.

"What more can you say about that?" said Al Peterson. "We shut down there top guys, and the bottom feeders start scoring for them. We just can't win."

The top guys finally scored when Armand set up the DA for a 3-0 Howitzer lead.

"Good thing Rick told us to settle down, or we would have really run up the score," said Steve Hardy. "You don't want to win too many games in the first six weeks."

JA Ambrosino took a Brian Armand pass and got the Grenades on the board, but by then the Foxboro police report had been altered.

Ragu tacked on his 2nd in the second for a 4-1 lead and that was that. The 3rd line would get alot of ice time in the third for the Howitzers, with Richard Breed picking up a goal with Jeff Whittemore getting the assist.

Ambrosino tacked on a late Kotex goal for the 5-2 final.

After the game Angry Jack was too tired to talk.

"I hope we don't get four goal leads too often this season," explained AJ. "I don't think I can take all that ice time Ricks' gonna give us 3rd liners."

"Boy that navy team is just unstoppable," commented Mike Raimo.

"Yeah but I hear they have to have either Aizanman or Bruner stay home on Friday in an alternating schedule just to keep it fair," replied. Steve Iannetti.

"We'll be okay once we get Jon Morin back in our lineup," said a positive Ben Minsk.
