Rollie does it all, 4-0 Good Neighbors.

The green Good Neighbors got some above average goaltending from Rollie the Goalie, as they shutout the Long Shots 4-0 on Friday morning.

We don't have an accurate shot count, but safe to say Rollie hammed up every one of them, as he goose egged the gold team in the season's first shutout.

Russ Steeves and Jim Wilkinson set up John Kitchura just 3:16 into the first, and it was a stone cold lock for a win. They wouldn't need any others as Long and Co. came up empty in the offensive department.

Although the Long Shots "almost" scored a goal, but the whistle blew during a scrum and Rollie and the Neighbors would catch a break.

Phil Andrusin took a pass from Mark Melito and made it 2-0 late in the first, and the Neighbors were off and running and in full control.

In the 2nd Kitch scored again, then in the third new guy Trevor Legere accounted for the final goal in the 4-0 final.

"Trevor skates around real good, he just doesn't produce," said Neighbors captain Jim Wilkinson. "This was big for him actually scoring a goal."

"I was real impressed with Mark Melito today," said Brian Leslie in a post game video which can be seen on our Facebook page. "Usually he would hang at the far blue line late in a blowout. But he was actively helping on defense in his own zone as we helped Rollie get the shutout."

Rollie was humble as he always is.

"Even with the ref screaming shutout for two periods, I didn't get rattled," said Rollie.

The other bench wasn't so humble.

"We're finding that Bruner and Crazy Legs Smith are nothing more than Mike Saia in disguise," said captain Andy Long. "And this new guy Joe Surette, well, he's not a real Duck."
