February 10 Highlights:
Kings and Queens vs Ligres….can we call the K&Q team the underdogs? They have had flashes of strong play. So let’s see how they did today vs a very good team. A valiant effort came up a bit short as some more scoring was needed late in the game. Ligres win 11-7.
Stars vs Blackbirds…definitely the underdog vs the King and Queen pins! (sorry Kings and Queens, but just had to use that one). A great effort from the Stars as the Blackbirds were rumoured to miss the night before curfew without stars in the sky at bedtime. Blackbirds win 9-5.
February 3 Highlights:
Stars vs Kings and Queens…both teams were a little short but still into it big time. The Stars had some offence this time! And once they got the lead in the 2nd period they never surrendered it. Stars win 6-3.
Ligres vs Blackbirds…this is fast becoming a great fun rivalry along with some upscale talent. The game was awesome! Quick and full of beauty play making. It was close after two periods with the Blackbirds up 6-5. They flew away with it in the final period. Blackbirds win 10-6.
January 27 Highlights: more snow and more ball hockey!
Kings and Queens vs Blackbirds…the big test for the newbies as they met the defending champs! And they passed the test!! At 4-4 late in the 3rd the Blackbirds scored to make it a 5-4 game. Then with the goalie pulled the Kings and Queens tied it with under a minute remaining. The Blackbirds had a penalty shot awarded with 4-seconds left in the match and the big save came from goalie Martin Caya to preserve the tie for the Kings and Queen. 5-5 tie.
Stars vs Ligres…could the Ligres continue on their hot start? The Stars were hopeful for a full bench as this is always needed vs the Ligres talented club. This was a very fun and even match as it was evident early on that it would be a low scoring affair. 1-1 after one and 4-2 Ligres after two. In the 3rd only one goal was score and the Ligres got it. They Stars were unlucky not too!. Ligres win 5-2.
January 20 Highlights: “and the weather outside as frightful…."and we still played!
Ligers vs Kings and Queens…the Ligres fresh off a big win over the defending champs last week were up against the new team who won their first game last week in fine fashion. A great game as the Kings and Queens kept it very interesting for two periods all tied up 3-3. But in the 3rd the Ligers roared to victory! Ligers win 10-3.
Blackbirds vs Stars…the defending Champs were looking to get back into the win column as were the new look Stars who had a couple of new additions trying it out today. Problem for the Star is that there were a couple of key no-shows. The Blackbirds toyed with the smaller Stars bench. Blackbirds win 5-1.

January 13 Opening Day Highlights!
Blackbirds vs Ligers….What a great way to get stared with the rematch after last sessions final. The Ligres moved the ball as well as we have ever seen a co-ed team do it. At times it was sheer poetry. The Blackbirds have this in their arsenal, but it was not there today in full as flashes of it were shown. Ligers win 7-4.
Kings and Queens vs Stars….the new team against a group of Stars still in the works of re-making itself. The Kings and Queens have some speed and a goaltender who was on fire today!

Great first ever co-ed season! See everyone for the Winter Session start on Sunday, January 13th!
December 2 Highlights: The Final!

In the 3rd the Ligres scored early to be up 5-3. Then the championship comeback took place as the Blackbirds scored 4 straight for the big win at the right time.

Everyone received a sample of Head & Shoulders Old Spice Pure Sport anti-dandruff shampoo which helps get rid of dandruff and does so with a manly Old Spice scent.
If you have Struts take a photo of you and some or all of your team with one sample only for submission to Head and Shoulders….you could win $300 for a team party at Ralph’s!
(staged or funny will give you a better chance of winning we are told…so for example one player (or all) with shampoo in his hair might do the trick!)
