Game Recap:

Rookie Richer triumphant in first O4 goalie game

The second game of Week 1 was an awesome one featuring close friends on both ends of the rink as Richer's Wizard of Aus took on rookie captain Patrick Gaudreau's Stick Magnets. This game featured the ball hockey goaltending debut of young Aly Richer, an accomplished ice hockey goalie who had never previously transitioned to ball hockey there was some nervousness from her parents as she took over the crease, but the fresh faced tender didn't show much (outward) nervousness onthe floor in this game!
The opening minutes of the game would be very evenly played with great scoring changes at either end that were denied by Richer and SM tendy Ben Conrad. Approximately halfway through the period sophomore Sam Parsonson 🚨🍏 would submit a bid for "Goal of the Year" early in the campaign as he deftly deked through a ton of traffic and scored with a beauty fnish to give the Magnets a 1-0 lead. Second later they would extend their lead on a Jeff Murphy 🎩🎩🎩 bomb that caught the corner to make it 2-0. SM had multiple chances to extend the lead following that goal but were turned aside by some very solid Richer stops, her team would reward her late in the period with a pair of goals to tie the game on snipes by JP Donnelly 🚨🚨🍏🍏🍏 and Austin Perron 🎩🎩🎩🍏 and that's how the first period would finish with the score locked at 2-2.
The 2nd frame would be back and forth with the teams exchanging goals in the first 10 minutes to make it 4-4, With half a period to play WoA would step up to put a stranglehold on the game, Mylene Frechette 🚨🍏 started the scoring spree and instead of that goal again being matched by SM it was Perron and then Rene de Montigny 🚨🍏 extending the Wizards lead to 7-4 with just 2:01 left to play. Christine Morris 🚨🍏🍏 would add some excitement with a late blast top shelf through traffic but it wasn't enough as WoA add an ENG and walk away with an 8-5 victory. Congrats to Aly Richer on her first career O4 goalie win, she was full value for the victory stopping 40 of 45 shots and adding an assist to an impressive stat line.
