Grenades skate by Guns, 6-2.
The Grenades were all over the Guns from
start to finish, and even with a ton of mistakes and Andy Long in
the line up, they still easily won by four goals.
Mike Raimo was back to familiar territory on Friday, back on
"It's where all the former great BBHC players go to watch their
careers die," laughed Raimo. "Right Murph?"
"That's where they put us, it's a slow, painful death," said Murph. "That's
why I always show up late. Atleast we still get to play though."
"Um, I that's not why I'm on defense, is it Bill," retorted Joe Surette.
"Not as far as you know," replied Osbahr.
The puck dropped and went right in the Machine Gun zone, and never
left. If not for a post, a crossbar, some open net saves by
defenseman Brian Leslie, and some easy misses by Jimmy D. and Brian
Armand, this would have been a laugher.
Finally the Grenades did get the puck actually in the net, when JA
Ambrosino scored, followed by a Phil Andrusin goal on a 2 on 1 with
Was Raimo really on a 2 on 1 while playing defense ?
It should have been 3-0 as the onlsaught continued, but Andy Long
decided to NOT pass the puck to a wide open Joe Smith standing alone
in front of the Machine Gun net.
"Pull the pin, pull the pin!!" his Grenade teammates were shouting
from the bench.
That play came back to haunt Long and the Grenades, as early in the
2nd Mark Melito and Pat Deskin scored a few minutes apart to tie the
game at 2-2.
But after that brief McFlurry, it went back to being a one sided
affair for the green team.
George Howard scored followed by 2nd goals by both Ambrosino and
Andrusin, then Jon Morin tacked on a Kotex point when he scored the
final goal of the game in a 6-2 final.
"Some of us were covered in sand after we shook hands," noted Al
Peterson. "Something fishy is going on here."
Oh, Andy Long made a nice diving defensive play to stop a breakaway
with about 20 seconds left. He wanted us to mention that.
