Aces clear the Fog in OT, 3-2.
The Fog had a 2-1 lead with just about 30
seconds to play, but without Andy Long as captain this week
directing the squad, they were lost and gave up the tying goal late.
Then proceeded to lose early in OT to add insult to injury.
“Our current Captain blew it, “ said former Captain Andy Long, “He
put that bum #72 out there in the last minute up by one? I would
Never have put that guy out there, he’s horrible.”
There wasn't much scoring at all in this one, in fact, it all the
scoring was done by 4th line players.
Brian Armand had the only goal of the first period, as the Aces were
up 1-0. In the 2nd, Andy Long tied it for the Fog as he got the only
goal in the middle period.
Mark DeFellippis put the Fog back on top as he netted one for the
gold team and it was 2-1.
Derek Rockossi was definitely the better of the two goalies. Not
that Desimone was bad, he just wasn't as good. Though in his defense
he said he was clenching his cheeks hard when the game went into
With time running out for the Aces, Brian Leslie made a super
saweeeet play to keep the puck in, and then fired a shot that Jeff
Rogato would help into the net, and with just 27 seconds left the
game was tied at 2-2.
Al Peterson was beside himself.
"Can it get any worse?" said Al to himself but we overheard it.
It did. Just barely a minute into the shortened OT period, another
nice play by Leslie sent in the struggling Mike Cormican. The puck
ended up going over to John Ragucci at the side of the net, and
after several swipes at the puck, Ragu did indeed jam in the GWG.
The Aces move into first place at 2-0-1 and the Fog slide into third
Now that Rick Armand is out of the way, maybe a Tony Onello team
will finally get it's due.
