Week 10 - Great Wall of First Place

Previous Story
2019-03-31

Another great week of ball hockey action that was unfortunately marred by a completely accidental play that resulted in a serious injury, consider this your annual reminder to protect yourself an much as possible and be careful out there, the games are played at a high pace and even though the respect level is high in our league, this is hockey and the potential of injury is always there. Thankfully while the injury is serious there doesn't sound like there is anything that will have a long term effect, hopefully we see Christine back out on the floor soon, I'm sure you all join me in wishing her a quick and painless recovery!

Once again all the games were remarkably competitive with our last place team stealing a tie from our previous top team Justin Time who fall from the top of the standings for the first time this season. With just 2 weeks to play before the playoff seedings are finalized there is actually quite a bit of a gap between the top 8 (A) and bottom 6 (B), the top 5 teams have all booked their ticket to the A pool while GK, 4NBFITC and NS all need just a single point in their last 2 games to clinch their spot, within the 2 divisions however seedings are still completely up for grabs, GWOP have moved into top spot overall but that race is far from done with JT and LNF breathing down their necks. Should be a great finish to the regular season and set up some great playoff matchups!

On to the recaps:

Scary injury overshadows B&D knocking JT out of top spot

In a battle of the almost last-place Balls & Dolls and the 1st place Justin Time, sharpshooter Bradley McCarter sniped 3 goals, Rachel Clermont picked up 3 assists, and star netminder Justin Labrecque made 50 saves....while on the other side Bally captain Shawn Weatherdon scored a hat-trick in the hard-fought 4-4 tie.

There was also a scary incident in this game as popular player Christine Morris had an accidental stick clip her in the mouth. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital where she received stitches for the deep cut. She came back to the gym afterwards though and is in good spirits and feels she'll be ready to go in no time.
