Shamrocks finally get a win, 3-2.


What should have been a pair of easy wins over the lowly green Shamrocks, started with a 3-2 loss in game one of the home and home series.

The Rocks were a perfect 0-5 coming into the game against the first place 4-0-1 Presidents. All signs pointed to an easy win for the first place team, but that's why you play the game.

Mark Wood and Luke Stiegerwald traded goals as it was the "defense" who provided the offense for both teams in the first. In the 2nd we had a Mike Cormican sighting, as he was credited with the second Shamrock goal to put them up 2-1.

The low scoring affair continued into the 3rd where Phatt Deskin scored 4 minutes in to tie it at 2-2.

"There's not alot of points out there today," noted Deskin. "Even less on a line with Wilkinson and Iannetti."

In the later stages of the final period it was Ragu who threw the team on his back, as he set up Tony Onello for the GWG with 4:23 to play.

"This guy is more valuable the Marshawn Lynch," noted Onello.

With Raimo and Chewie back on defense, the green team would hang on for the 3-2 win, their first of the season.

"People are calling us the Sham-hawks instead of Shamrocks," said Ben Minsk. "Well, okay, just Uretsky is doing that. But it's still really mean of them to say that."

"All I'm saying is we play again next week," replied Uretsky. "Let's see if they can repeat."
