2020-02-16
Hard to believe that next Sunday will put us halfway through the regular season already, we've seen some great hockey and week 5 was no exception with virtually every game being close at least until the end. Three teams remain undefeated, but with 2 of them facing off head to head in week 6 which team will go the longest before tasting defeat? Wins in week 5 by POTI and the Wannabes have left only one team In Russ We Trust still searching for their first victory, I don't see it being much longer until they find their stride, will this be their week? Check out the recaps from another great week of ball hockey below:
