#2 Brewers vs #5 Tuck
The Brewers have taken both games against Tuck this season, although one of them was a 1-0 forfeit win while Tuck was on winter break. The first game between these two teams ended up in a 9-2 win for the Brewers.
Tuck is on a pretty harsh skid, losing 4 of their last 5 games, which is the opposite of the Brewers who have only lost on of their last 5.
If Tuck has the right players this should be a good battle, but regardless of the rosters this should be a win for the Brewers.
Brew Crew 5, Tuck 4
Brewers Survive Late Tuck Rally. Win 9-7
The Brewer's Chris "Let's Smoke a" Dubin led his team to a win tonight over a tough Tuck squad. With a hat trick and two helpers, "Dubin played his best game of the year," recalled Keith "Bubba" Lazarczyk who added to the cause with a pair of goals himself. In all reality, this was probably the best game of Dubin's life.
Tuck's Brandon "The Harry One" Harrington was on fire, scoring 4 goals and two assists as he threw everything and the kitchen sink at the Brewer's Matty "The Spazzy" Albertazzi.
"We had problems slowing down Harrington, I think he had 4 goals and he hit the post a couple times too" said Lazarczyk after the game. Harrington was a wrecking crew as he fought to get his team back in this game.
The Brewers held a comfy 5-3 lead after 2 periods and were up 8-4 with just under 8 minutes to play. Tuck battled back to within a goal, only to see Brock "Bully" Barton put a nail in the coffin with an empty netter with 35 seconds to play.
It wasn't your prototypical defensive men's league battle...O.K., there is never really a defensive scheme in Men's League hockey, but both defense and goaltending were thrown to the wolves tonight.
The Brewers did enough to win, and an in game observation by the scorekeeper noticed that there was "an amazing difference in cleanliness of play by the Brewers without Poirier & Johnson!" Only two penalties and it seemed as though all enjoyed themselves.
Don't forget to vote for the Long Trail Player of the Week! A case of beer is on the line, eh!
