March 31st 2016, game two of the playoffs.
The Red team was down two goals with 2minutes left in the game, fighting to see another day. The goalie was pulled for the second week in a row. The same move last week resulted in two goals being scored. Could we do it again.
Miraculously, we did. We not only scored two goals, but we scored three, and won the game.
Game three will decide who wins the 2015-2016 Honey Badger Cup.
Ok, some of you are scratching your head. Check todays date.
Like I said, Don’t call it a comeback.
Congratulations to The Gray Team.
Once again, a great season.
The 2015-2016 Honey Badger Cup Champions are:
Kevin Drew, Matt Casey, Doug Gallacher, Dave Jagger, Matt Quail, Andy Weiner, Paul Giggey, Mike Pierce, Jim O’Brien, Aaron Callaway, Steve Murray, Eric Faulkner and Mike Luciano.
Both goalies will be put on the Cup due to this year’s format of switching teams at halftime. Let it be noted that Stonewall edged Mad Mike in the goals against average (ok, by a lot), but both played great.
Also worthy of noting is Andy Weiner’s performance. Andy was the MVP in the series and only the second MVP ever to be named in the HBHL playoffs. Nice work, you dink.
The games were close, but at the end of the day The Red team couldn’t match pace with Gray.
And finally, congratulations to Jim O’Brien. Jim is the 2015-2016 Iron Man Award recipient. This is a new award that will be handed out to anyone who repeatedly takes crosschecks from Gun Show throughout the season but continues to play despite the numerous internal injuries that have occurred. Unbelievable Jimmy.
Final skate is next week, and it will mark the end of season #4 of the HBHL.
