New pads help Fuji in 5-5 tie.

After last week's debacle,  Tom Fuji put a match to all his goalie gear and bought new stuff.

It worked, as he cut his GAA in half in a 5-5 tie.

The Blue and Green teams had a see-saw battle here in week six that ended up in a kiss your sister tie 5-5. 

Jimmy D, who had a sweet bat out of the air goal, said after putting on his chapstick, "I had a nice goal, and kissing my sister isn't too bad, so its going to be a nice weekend."   

After scoring 11 goals last week Blue Water Country hit the splash zone again with Jon Morin scoring only eight seconds into the game.

"We've said all year, with Fuji in net we need 11 to win."  

JA  Ambrosino scored again hanging at the Greens blue line all game and going 2 for 75 on breakaways. "One of these games someone is going to have to introduce me to our goalie,"  said JA.

Blue went ahead 3 to Love but the Green team made a comeback. Melito got Green on the board then George Anderson scored a beauty of a goal with a behind his back tip off a point shot. "I always have trouble with the puck in front of me," said George. 

Jimmy D had his air mail goal and Green took the lead scoring again to set up the see saw finish.  Jake tied it back up for Blue and then with Fuji caught in the deep end of the pool, Mike Raimo, with the speed of lava, scored a wrap around goal to put Canobie Lake back on top. 

In the closing minutes on a goal mouth scramble Trevor wasn't able to eat the puck (really?) and Joe Surrette banged it home for the tie.

Justin Fortini filled in for Cooz, who had mandatory anger management class, and after a slow start, played well stuffing a few late  breakaways to help Green earn a point.  

"Justin was outstanding in net for The Lake," said one teammate on Facebook. "He bailed out Trevor twice by stopping breakaways in the final minute of the game and overtime."

In 12 combined games, these two teams have 3 combined wins. Just to put it all in perspective.

Dan McCarthy had the line of the morning, as his team was filing in to the locker room.

"Guys, let's close the door, we got all the guys we want in here right now."
