Woolworths wallops depleted Lechmere team, 5-4.

The score was way closer than it should have been with only 8 skaters showing up for the red team.

And they weren't the "right" eight either.

Jack Gavin didn't have much to work with, so he put it on himself to shadow Derek Osbahr.

"I would have had better luck shadowing Bill Osbhar," said Angry Jack.

To his credit, he did a great job for most of the game, keeping the younger Osbahr to just a pair of goals.

Red scored early as Steve Thompson gave them a 1-0 lead. Osbahr tied it later in the first, then each team scored just one in the 2nd as they played to a 2-2 tie headed to the final 19.

Tired legs for Lechmere found themselves down 5-2 with just over 3 minutes left. It should have been over, but this green Woolworths team is not your average run of the mill first place BBHC team.

Two more goals by Thompson had this one at 5-4, and what should have been an easy win for WW, turned into 100 seconds of holding their breath to hang on for the win.

Both Osbahrs are in the top 11 in scoring, what is going on ????
