Jansen got his second of the night on a play in close to make it 7-1. Spare Lisa Howey got another one for Fody's when she got her own rebound and tucked it in. Brian Velthove made it a 7-3 final when he wristed one home off a face off win.
Agro came out guns blazing in this one was with all sorts of pressure. Fody's did have some chances, but ran into a solid performance by B Division call up, Nolan Collard. It just wasn't a Fody's night on the score sheet.
Travis Horvath had 4 goals and an assist while Kyle Jansen had 2 and 2 for Agro. Andrew Jacko had 2 assists for Fody's.

Game Note: A Club Oxford Hockey first occurred at 9:20 of the second period when we had a husband and wife combine for a goal.  One up on the NHL.

Jason Davis had the lone first period goal as he put Agro up by one with a wrist shot that powered its way in. Matt Heleniak tied it up early in the second when he jammed one that popped up and over Gignac. Brandon Rohrer restored the Agro lead 9 seconds later off a rebound in close. Shane Balcomb tied it up on the powerplay with a goal from down low. Kevin Verbruggen notched his first of the year for Re/Max when he walked in from the blue line and let a wrister go. Balcomb added his second of the night with a wraparound goal. Spare Brad Hornby added an empty-netter to end this one.
Re/Max stayed on this one the whole game. Coach Stewart should be happy with this effort as they kept the lead late after tying it up twice. Agrospray was playing a couple guys short and were missing their top two scorers, but were able to sort things out to make this an entertaining game.
Shane Balcomb and 2 goals and assist for Re/Max. Jason Davis and Brandon Rohrer had the goals for Agro.

Brian Velthove gave Fody's their first lead with a wrister that had eyes, which turned out to be the game winner.
Fody's did well to stave off Verne's late as ghosts of games past didn't spoil this one. Verne's had some different scoring tonight, which will come in handy during the mid-season stretch.
Spencer Meron, Darrick French and Brian Velthove had a goal and assist for Fody's. Braydon Rodgers and Evan Prouse had 2 point nights for Verne's.

Sweetland added his second of the night when he netted his own rebound. Darrick French made it 5-4 when he scored on a one-timer with the extra attacker. Re/Max added a couple empty netters from Brady Sutherland and Josh McKibbin to finish this one out.
This one was evenly matched as both teams kept it close at both ends. Re/Max has found a way to keep leads as of late which will be key to future success, plus, six different goal scorers is hard to defend against. Fody's came out strong and were able to keep it close with secondary scoring, it was nice to see them keep going when down by a couple late.
Dom Lichtensteiger, Shane Balcomb and Joe Thorburn all had 3-point nights for Re/Max. David Matthews had a goal and 2 assists for Fody's.

Spare Joe VanQuaethem got one back for Agro when he found a loose puck in a scrum. Jake Jeffries made it 5-4 when he scored off the rebound on a nice effort by Evan Chute. Spare Patric McElhone was able to deposit one in after it took a weird bounce off the end boards. Horvath added one late from the high slot for the hat trick and the game winner.
The first period was quite even as the scoring was low and the defence was strong. Verne's looked to be taking this one with 4 goals in 3 minutes, but this Agro team can score in bunches too and rallied with 4 of their own in the last 4 minutes. Agro has won some close ones against Verne's, but shouldn't rely on the comebacks too much.
Travis Horvath had 3 goals and an assist for Agro. Brad Martin had 2 goals and an assist for Verne's.

Homick added a second goal on the powerplay when he took a pass from Hopper and scored as he skated behind the net. Vandepoele got one back for Agro with a high wrister midway through the second. Horvath made it a one-goal game when he scored the hat trick on a rebound he popped up and over the goalie. That was as close as it would get though.
The first period was a ping pong match with each team scoring 3 and answering each other's efforts. Fody's looked to be in control in the second as they scored 3 unanswered, however, Agro is never out of this and came close to tying it up. A solid win for Fody's and their top scorers are finding a groove. Agro did well to bounce back and sure know how to pressure the other team.
Devin Homick had a 4-point night for Fody's. Travis Horvath and Adam Vandepoele had 4-point nights for Agro.

In overtime, Kevin Verbruggen started a rush and ended up being the recipient of a juicy rebound as the trailing man.
There is something about these two teams that make games close and low scoring. Overtime is not unusual either. Re/Max did well to defend against an explosive offence with regularity. Verne's had their chances, but were just missing the finish.

Thorburn got his second on a backhand but that was as close as it would get.
Agrospray juggled some lines and it made the offence even more dynamic and dangerous. Re/Max was hanging tough throughout the first, but a couple quick goals against took some wind out of the sails.

Verne's came out strong in this one with a bunch of first period pressure and Hilliard was solid in backing them up. Fody's had some chances, but the puck couldn't find its way across the line. Brad Martin seems to be heating up so that will be important for Verne's heading innto the new year.
Brad Martin had a 2 goals and an assist for Verne's. Darrick French had the lone goal for Fody's.

These guys know how to keep the games close and can stop the onslaught when needed. Re/Max was able to spread out their scoring which is key in A Division anymore. Fody's seems to be on the verge of goal scoring spree, but just can't get the bounces at the right time.

Balazs notched his second of the night with a backhander on a breakaway. Dave VanWyk added his second to tie things up on a cross crease pass. Overtime solved nothing.
These two teams have a knack for close games. Verne's jumped out early and then dug themselves out of a hole to force overtime. They got there offence going while still getting back and helping Hilliard all game. Re/Max did their job and were able to hang tough with Verne's pressure at the end. Both goalies had big saves despite what the scoreboard showed.

Horvath made it 6-3 with a wrister from just inside the blue line. Chris Sanders made it 6-4 in the second when he was able to get enough on one to go up and over the goalie. Horvath made it rain hats with a wrist shot from the slot. Chris Koteles added one late to finish the game and 2018 off for Club O.
Both teams were short a full forward line, but made good use of the energy in the first. Agro has such powerful scoring it is hard to stop them. Plus, they control the game with their passing which frustrates their opponents. Fody's, to their credit kept in this one, when it looked like a runaway, it was only 2-goals different midway through the second. They can build on this as they played well when they had the puck.
Travis Horvath and Cody Chute had 5-point nights for Agrospray. David Matthews and Brian Velthove had a goal and an assist for Fody's.

Re/Max seemed energized after the Christmas break and had constant pressure all game. Being able to keep the pressure on helped keep the puck away from Agro's top guys. Agro had an off night as the defence couldn't handle the Re/Max speed and Gignac couldn't stand on his head in this one.

David Matthews picked things back up for Fody's when he scored with a quick shot from the side of the net. Spencer Meron got credit for the 7th goal when the clearing attempt went off his shin and into the net. Brian Velthove made it 8-2 when he avoided a Chuter pokecheck and put it in. Dave VanWyk got a quick one back for Verne's when he found a loose puck in close. Jordan Spitzke made it 9-3 when he finished off a cross crease pass. Devin Homick made it 10-3 with a solo effort for Fody's. Kyle Jones started a comeback for Verne's when he smacked in a rebound. Kyle Smith found a puck in a scramble in the crease to make it 10-5. Ryan Black made it 10-6 with three to go, but that was as close as this one would get.
This one started rough for Verne's as their starting goalie got hurt 6 minutes in and they had to find a replacement. Cody Chute answered the call, which we were all thankful for. Fody's was in control early in this one as their speed was hard to control. Fody's had Sanders on fire which is not a bad thing. Verne's played well after the goalie change, but with the focus on defence, it was hard to get chances in the other end. Late in the game, they mounted a small comeback to make the score a little more appealing.
Chris Sanders had a hat trick for Fody's. Dave VanWyk had a 4-point night for Verne's.

Re/Max has been rolling lately and playing very well together. Buchner has been on his game and the spread out scoring makes it hard to defend. Fody's has been juggling lines to get some scoring going and when it does open up, these guys will catch fire.

Dave VanWyk opened things up when he was able to wrist one over the glove for the 1-0 Verne's lead. Aaron Phillips tied it up quickly for Agro when he went post-in on a hard wrist shot. Dave VanWyk added his second with a wrister from the blue line that just fooled the goalie. Travis Horvath tied it up again with a high shot just under the crossbar. Braydon Rodgers answered right back for Verne's to make it 3-2 on a shot in close. Spare Nate Peacock was able to unleash a shorthanded snapshot to make it 4-2. Brandon Rohrer was able to poke a loose puck over the line to make it 4-3. Spare Cody Chute finished off a beauty tic-tac-toe play to tie things up. Dave VanWyk notched the hatty before the end of the period when he was alone out front. Andrew VanWyk made it 6-4 early in the second when he found the net on an odd-man rush. Adam Vandepoele made it 6-5 off a hard wrister as he crossed the ice. Horvath tied it up after a steal and he went low glove. Kelsey VanYmeren took advantage of a late powerplay to score with 24 seconds left to give Verne's a hard fought victory over the top team.
When Verne's can score early, they are in the game all the way. They answered every Agro response and played a strong second to keep the Agro scorers at bay. Agro has been having a tough time lately, but they have relied a lot on Gignac early in the season. The defence will bounce back I am sure and the offence isn't slowing down.
Dave VanWyk had 3 goals and assist for Verne's. Adam Vandepoele had a goal and 2 assists for Agrospray.

Agro came back after a couple losses in a row with a solid effort. Brandon Rohrer did well between the pipes to let the offence do their thing. Fody's was in this one all the way until a couple quick ones left them on their heels. Some puck luck would help their scorers for sure.

Re/Max keeps rolling and got a lot of help from that top line. Balcomb is really enjoying having Balazs back off the IR. It was a tight checking game by both teams as it seems these teams always play that way. Verne's did well not to let that early 2-0 deficit throw them off as they battled back and kept Re/Max off the board in period 2 until late.

Re/Max was on their game tonight. They didn't let Agro have much space, even killing off 50 seconds of a 5-on-3. Coach Stewart has brought his guys around since Christmas. Agro played well tonight, not giving up many quality chances, but they just couldn't buy a goal at any price.

Evan Prouse made it 5-3 with a one-timer from the faceoff dot. Belaen scored his second of the night on a high shot from the goal line.
These two teams were quite evenly matched. Verne's did well to bounce back after a slow start and had a strong second to keep Fody's bogged down and off the score sheet. Fody's came out strong but just took their foot off the gas a little and opened the door. A close game that went to the team that finished strong.

Travis Horvath put Agro up again when he one-timed a pass in the slot. Brad Martin responded on the powerplay with a backhanded slapper. Aaron Phillips made it 3-2 Agro early in the second when he drove the net on a rush. Brad Martin replied again when he cut across the crease and out-waited the goalie for the easy put in. Dave VanWyk notched his second of the night when he wired one from the top of the circle. Spare Joe VanQuaethem scored on a cross crease pass 10 seconds later. Brad Martin would get the hat trick with an empty-netter to close this one out.
This game was a very solid game despite what the scoreboard said. It was quite even until that one minute in the second. Verne's was able to pounce on their opportunities and didn't let Agro back into it with 3 goals in 1:02. Very good for Verne's to win these battles of late. Agro just seemed to let off the gas for a minute and it cost them. It was one of their better games recently up until that point. You can sense a breakout of the slump soon.
Brad Martin had a hat trick, Cody Furlong had 3 assists for Verne's. Adam Vandepoele had 2 assists for Agrospray.

Re/Max started things off when Matt Heleniak let a big slapper go that found the back of the net. Rob VanVelzer tied it up when he went top corner with a wrist shot. VanVelzer added a second shortly after with a booming shot from the point. Spencer Meron made it 3-1 before the end of the period when he corralled a shot off the end boards and knocked it in. Matt Sweetland made it 3-2 when he was able to get a shot off in close. Scott Balazs tied it up when he was able to get a backhander just past the goalie's blocker. Joe Thorburn put in a rebound on the powerplay to make it 4-3 Re/Max with about 4 to go. With time winding down, Spare Joe VanQuaethem was able to one-time a pass from the slot to send it to overtime. Some big saves and big chances in OT was not enough to break the stalemate.
Fody's came out strong in the first and it looked like a long night ahead for Re/Max. However, Re/Max held their own and cashed in late in the second. Fody's scrapped their way to overtime. Both teams can build on the game as they both bounced back. Re/Max continues to play hard and get points. Fody's will break through with some wins soon.
Brady Sutherland had 3 assists for Re/Max. Rob VanVelzer had 2 goals for Fody's.

Re/Max went up first when Joe Thorburn notched a powerplay goal from the slot. Chad Homick made it 2-0 when he spun around and slapped one through the 5-hole. Craig Smith made it 2-1 late when he was able to knock one in out of a scrum in front. Dave VanWyk tied it up when he cut across the front of the net and went upstairs. Craig Smith gave Verne's the lead when he converted a pass from behind the net. Braydon Rodgers added an empty-netter to close this one out.
Verne's has been playing some very strong hockey recently and are building on plays that don't go their way instead of getting frustrated by them. Stopping a hot Re/Max team is a great motivator as we head into the home stretch. Re/Max just couldn't convert in the second period even though they had chances. A good game that just didn't end the way they wanted.
Craig Smith had goals, Kyle Smith and Dave VanWyk had 2-point nights for Verne's. Joe Thorburn and Chad Homick had the goals for Re/Max.

Travis Horvath made it 3-2 when he was able to find a loose puck in the crease and knock it over the line.
A needed win for Fody's but a tough loss for Agro as both teams tried to end a rough patch. Fody's came out strong in the first and held the pressure throughout. A strong relief appearance by Sean Cebulak stifled the chances Agro did get. Agro had their chances, but a hot goalie and no puck luck made for a frustrating game. The offence is building and I am sure it will burst through any game now.
Darrick French and Joe VanQuaethem had 2-point nights for Fody's. Evan Chute had a 2-point night for Agro.

Matt Heleniak put Re/Max ahead again with a redirected from the side of the net. Horvath tied it up with 15 seconds to go when he sniped in a Vandepoele faceoff win. Neither goalltender blinked in overtime.
It looked like Agro was going to run away with this one as they made it 3-0 early. Re/Max was not to be counted out as they answered back with 4 straight. The second period was more tight checking resulting in fewer chances. Both teams were short a whole line, so the forwards got a good workout.
Adam Vandepoele and Travis each had 2 goals and an assist for Agrospray. Shane Balcomb, Matt Sweetland, Dom Lichtensteiger and Nate Peacock all had 2-point nights for Re/Max.

Durham would notch the hat trick with a wrister over the goalie's glove.
Verne's made good use of their spares as they had 4 of the 6 goals on the night. The speed game was a factor early on as Verne's were able to tire Fody's out a bit with the pressure. Fody's played a decent game but were short a full line. It gave guys a chance to play more, but at times it was hectic on the line changes.
Spare Alex Durham had a hat trick while spare Brady VanYmeren had 3 points for Verne's. Jordan Spitzke and Brian Velthove had 2-point nights for Fody's.

Re/Max has been playing quite well the last bit and only had a few lapses tonight. Greg Buchner was able to make some key saves to keep the momentum. Fody's seems to have hit an offensive slump and just can't bust loose. Buchner had a solid night for Re/Max, but there was some open nets that could have made the difference.

The only goal of the night was scored by Verne's Dave VanWyk on a one-timer off a very nice pass-pass-shoot sequence.
This game was very entertaining and hard fought. Verne's was able to get their goal on a very nice play and had stellar goaltending by Jesse Hilliard. They have played very well as a team recently. Agrospray played their all around best game in a while and just couldn't beat a hot goaltender. Mark Gignac was back to his normal form and it stifled Verne's for all but one goal.

Chris Fody is ramping up his game in preparation for the playoffs. He scored his first of the year with a point shot through traffic to give Fody's the early lead. Evan Chute tied it up when he picked off a pass and sped past a couple of d-men to tuck one in. Darrick French made it 2-1 near the end of the first when he put one in off a scramble in the crease. Spencer Meron made it 3-1 when he let a slapper go bar down early in the second. Brandon Rohrer scored a powerplay goal on a loose puck in the crease to make it 3-2. Kyle Belaen made it 4-2 when he found a rebound in the slot. Devin Homick was able to walk into the slot and let one go to make it 5-2. Adam Vandepoele got the last whack at one in the crease to make it 5-3 with 4 minutes remaining. Chris Sanders added a pair to seal this one; one was a long slapper and the other one he was able to get up from in close.
Fody's got their scorers going in this one, which will be key for playoffs. Hopper played a great game to keep Agro fairly quiet. Agro had some chances and were in this game the whole way. They are getting snake bit on the scoreboard, but they are on the verge of opening this flood gates.

Aaron Phillips finally broke open the scoring early in the second for Agro when he let a quick shot go from the slot. Adam Vandepoele made it 2-0 when he went to the backhand on a partial breakaway. Brandon Rohrer increased the lead by knocking one in from the top of the crease. Chris Koteles then scored off a faceoff, on the backhand as he was falling down. Rohrer scored his second of the night off a one-time pass to close this one out.
This one started off as a chess match, with each team trying to pick their spots. Agro got on the scoreboard early in the second and it sparked them. This was probably their most satisfying game in awhile as their offence came around and they had a goaltender stopping everything. Re/Max was in this one for sure. They ran into a hot backup goalie who stymied them all night. They played well, but Agro wanted to make sure they didn't get knocked off the top spot.

Andrew VanWyk made it 5-2 on the same 4-on-4 play when he went low blocker side from his off wing.
Verne's bounced back after weathering the storm in the first period. They have been playing well since Christmas and staying in the games even when trailing. Very spread out scoring will be helpful as the playoffs start soon. Fody's was in control of this one in the first. They ended up chasing the game and missing some chances, but they should be able to change it up for playoffs.

Andrew VanWyk gave Verne's the lead and the victory when he sniped one top corner.
Verne's has been rolling lately and always were ready for this game against Agro. They have been able to keep the other team's offence on the ropes and that will help in the playoffs. Agrospray was looking to end on a high note as they have had a rough month. Playoffs are a different story and I am sure they will dial it up in the “second season”.

Matt Heleniak put Re/Max on the board first when he let a slapper go from in close. Fody's ties it up when Devin Homick ripped home a wrister. Kyle Belaen made it 2-1 Fody's when he chased down a long pass and was able to slide one home. Spare Alex Sutherland tied it up when he sniped one top corner. Brent Stewart made it 3-2 Re/Max when he knocked one in from the slot. Scott Balazs made it 4-2 when his slapper just beat the goalie's glove. Chad Homick converted a short pass to make it 5-2. Balazs notched his second when he scored on a breakaway. Belaen added 2 quick ones in response, a loose puck he snapped in and he let another go from the slot. Joe Thorburn made it 7-4 Re/Max before the end of the period. Thorburn finished off a cross crease pass to make it 8-4. Heleniak added his second when he was left alone in the slot. Heleniak notched the hat trick when he converted on a 2-on-1. Every skater had at least one point for Re/Max tonight.
Re/Max wanted to prove they are the real deal and came out strong. The offence was spread out and hard to control all night. Keeping it going will be key in playoffs. Fody's hung in there in the first, but being short 4 guys was not going to end well. A full team and a chance to refocus will help out as the playoffs begin.
Scott Balazs had 2 goals and 2 assists for Re/Max. Kyle Belaen had the hat trick for Fody's

After a scoreless, yet penalty-filled first period, Team Visscher was able to figure out Orpie in the second. Spare Jeff Prouse notched the first for the expansion team when he was able to pop one up and over the sprawling goalie. Spare Mike Haegens made it 2-0 when he was able to pot one from a scrum outside the crease. Glass' Tyler Sergeant made it 2-1 when he let one go from the wing to beat the quick glove. Joe Rosato was able to corral a big rebound to restore Team Visscher's 2 goal cushion. Prouse added his second of the night late to close out this one.
While the refs called a tight one in the first, both goalies did well to keep it even. Glass killed off a 2-man disadvantage for over a minute as well. Coach Vissch was able to rally his troops and they started to gel pretty well in the second. Joe Rosato and spares Jeff Prouse and Mike Haegens had 3 point nights for the Blue guys.

JJ Harden scored early in the first to give his Muggers an early lead. Carquest bounced back with Andrew Davis notching one off a faceoff win. Nic Thomsen was able to put Mug back ahead when he slipped one under the sliding goalie. Blair Kersten tied it back up before the end of the first on a rebound at the side of the net. Stephen DeBlaire took 16 seconds to score from the point in the second, giving Mug the lead and eventual game winner as both goalies and defence were solid the rest of the way.
A clean game, except for one penalty, where you could see teams trying to get the lines just right. Both teams look strong for the rest of the season.

A close game in the first, Source ran into a hot spare while Visscher's kept them to the outside in the second. The Blue Squad is hitting midseason form. I wouldn't count Source out as lower seeds have done quite well in the playoffs.

Spare Dave Mels restored the two-goal lead for Glass when he powered a shot through the netminder. Stephen DeBlaire jumped out of the box to get a pass, where he made some moves around the D-men, outwaited Orpie and threw one upstairs as he was falling in highlight reel fashion. This one would be difficult for Mitch Marner to duplicate. JJ Harden was able to tie it up shortly after when he converted a 2 on 1. Kurtis Burton scored for Glass with 2 to go to give them the lead and victory in a wild game.
This one was back and forth in every way. It started off slow in the first, but it seemed the teams matched each other chance for chance. Glass did well not to give up when Mug tied it and Mug did great with a short bench.

In overtime, Kurtis Burton was able to steal the puck at centre and find the five hole on his breakaway.
These two teams have been very even all season and this game was no exception. Glass was able to keep the pressure on to keep Airmount playing both ends. Airmount was able to use their speed to get to the net and force Glass to make quick plays. Very solid game worthy of overtime.
Kyle Burton and Darren Swick each had a goal and assist, while Jamie Haines had 2 assists for Glass. Jeff Prouse and Zac McNally had a goal and assist for Airmount.

Source started things off when Spare Darren Swick was able to go short side on a rush. Adam Jensen made it 2-0 when he was able to slide one in from the doorstep. Shane Rowe made it 3-0 when he was able to take a turnover, walk in and get his own rebound. Nic Thomsen scored on the powerplay for Mug with a wrist shot to make it 3-1. Spare Conner Halonen answered back with a powerplay goal for Source off a rebound. Patrick Dion made it 5-1 Source to end the period when he finished off a 2-on-1 down low. JJ Harden started the second for Mug with a tipped in point shot to make it 5-2. Chase Corbeil made it 6-2 when he went roof on a break. Spare Ryan Parry scored off the faceoff on the powerplay to make it 7-2. Jensen added a shorthanded goal in the dying seconds to close this one out.
This one was all Source which led to a lot of frustration on Mugs behalf. Source had a bunch of spares to replace their regulars, but they were able to spread the offence around to make a long night for Mug defence. Mug wasn't really out of this one until the second. Bad bounces and no holes in Source goaltending made it a frustrating night.
Ryan Parry had a goal and 2 assists for Source. JJ Harden had 2 assists for Mug.

Andrew Davis lit the lamp first for Carquest when he scored on a wrister from the high slot. Christian Devlin made it 2-0 on the powerplay after a scramble in front. Laura Neu cut into the lead for Source when she was able to score off a weird bounce while falling. Blair Kersten restored the 2-goal cushion for Carquest when he found a loose puck at the side of the net. Kersten notched his second of the night off a rebound in close. Joe Ryan cut the lead in half again when he went high glove side from the circle. Devlin made it 5-2 with a shot that just had enough energy to cross the line. Adam Jensen made it 5-3 when he one-timed in a rebound. Craig Robb made it a one goal game 12 seconds later to get Source within one.
Carquest, with Andrew Davis leading, has become really adaptable at mixing lines and still getting maximum scoring potential. Source is finding some scoring and that can be dangerous for others down the stretch. Once they get the taste of a goal, they build on it.

Mug wins! Good to see these guys end 2018 on a high note. They had pretty much their whole team and worked well to keep Team Visscher's offence at bay. Team Visscher stuck in this one and just couldn't catch a break or break through the Mug defence. Solid game by bother teams.

Cody Wilson tied it up and forced OT when he scored from the door step. Overtime went quick with few whistles but no scoring, so a point was earned by each team.
Both goalies played well to keep this one close. Team Visscher will take the point as they have been having trouble winning, but they really need their scoring to pick back up. Less than 3 is hard to win in B Division. Glass has been lacking their primary scoring lately, but they have picked it up defensively as a team. If they can get both going, watch out.

Andrew Behrens gave Airmount the lead again on the powerplay when he slapped one home from the high slot.

Jensen notched his second of the night with a one-timer off a short pass in front. Laura Neu avoided overtime for Source when she picked off a clearing attempt, sent a high shot in that bounced off the goalies mask into the crease and then in the net. Source staved off late pressure from Airmount for the W.
This was a solid game by both teams. Plenty of chances but also good coverage in both ends. Source is finding their legs and if that top line starts clicking again, they will climb the standings. Airmount was doing well with a bunch of regulars out of the lineup. They were able to get some secondary scoring which will help out when the top guys have less space.

Jarrod Winters completed a 2-on-1 in the last seconds of overtime to give Glass the win.
Christmas was definitely 'so last year' in this one as this penalty-filled affair was rough from the start. Glass did well to not let a second period hole get them off their game and they found a way to get to OT again. Source was in the drivers seat in this one and it just slipped away at the end with a late penalty. Both goalies played well.

Andrew Behrens was able to poke one under the goalie on the powerplay to make it 5-4 midway through the period. Mug answered back when Dylan Cronmiller wired one in from the side of the net. Zylstra added a shorty to make it 7-4 Mug. Spare Kyle Underhill made it 7-5 when his shot from the circle found the net, but that was as close as this one would get.
Copper Mug is on a roll after breaking that O-fer streak and came out real strong in the first period. Their balanced scoring, when on, can match any team in the league. Airmount seemed a bit surprised at the beginning, but did well to comeback in this one. They are starting to play strong as a team, which will be crucial in playoffs.

Jarrod Winters slapped in the tying goal off a faceoff win to send it to OT. Both goalies were solid in the OT.
A solid game by Glass as they were able to hang in there while playing with a short bench. Orpie stood his ground and the defence held the high scoring Carquest to two. Carquest bounced back after not so good last game, they had their chances and were helped out a lot by some great glove work by Silverthorn.

Brett Ferguson restored the Carquest lead when he was able to poke a rebound under the goalie. Andrew Davis made it 4-2 on a wraparound midway through the period. Davis added a second on the powerplay when he walked around a couple guys and wristed one home.
This game was a pretty solid game. Carquest was able to put it all together after a 2-game winless streak (gasp) with a strong effort against an Airmount team that is showing it can go toe to toe against anyone. Carquest's mobile defence gives them an extra attack that can come out of nowhere. The only mistake Airmount made was getting the other teams leading scorer mad, which turned into goals against.

Team Visscher is building a streak after a tough holiday season. They have the top two lines going and that is hard to defend. Source had a tough go with a short bench which made it tiring to defend against a speedy team while running only 3 D-Men. They just need to shrug this one off.

Airmount took advantage of their spares in this one, but also had solid support all over the ice. It felt like Airmount was almost methodical in their play as they went with what worked all night. Glass struggled out of the gate which hasn't happened in awhile. There was some sloppy play, but it can be chalked up to just a bad overall game. They happen from time to time.

A tight checking game by both teams as the score was low and the chances weren't abundant. Mug played their game and had a solid effort by Roloson between the pipes. Team Visscher was in this game all the way, but may have gotten frustrated a bit at times which was a distraction at key times. They fought hard to get the point though.

The first period was back and forth in this one as both teams played a balanced game. Team Visscher was able to rally when they got frustrated and Abe Friesen looked like he was on a mission. A pressure filled second kept Glass on their heels. Glass had a bad few minutes in the second where they couldn't get anything going and were burned by a couple mistakes.

Spare Derek Buchner made it 2-1 Carquest when his point shot went off a defender's skate and into the net.

Lisabeth notched his second of the night when he was able to find the back of the net from the slot. Harden got his second into the empty net to close this one out.
This game had a lot of chances for both teams, but great stops by both goalies and a number of posts and crossbars kept it close. Mug kept to their game and were rewarded with some secondary scoring that had Carquest scrambling. Roloson was able to settle in after a shaky start. Carquest never really seemed out of this one, but a short bench and constant pressure kept them out of the second period.
JJ Harden had a 3-point night and Kevin Lisabeth had a 2-goal performance for Mug. Andrew Davis had 2 goals for Carquest.

Spare Kyle Underhill put Airmount out front when he was able to get in alone and snap one low blocker side. Nick Anderson made it 2-0 when he was able to pop one upstairs off a scramble in front. Spare Stephen Byron made it 2-1 when he was able to get a couple chances in front for Source. Patrick Dion tied it up on the powerplay when he was able to knock one in from close range. Wade Kirby notched a shorthanded goal when he made a steal and then a move to go backhand from in close.
Source For Sports was able to rally in the second to come back in this one. Taking advantage of their opportunities was important as there wasn't a lot of them to go around. Airmount played a solid game and stuck to their game plan. Some close chances didn't go their way, but they have been playing very well defensively and I am sure the offence will bounce back soon.
Wade Kirby had a goal and assist for Source. Nick Anderson and Kyle Underhill had the goals for Airmount.

JJ Harden opened things for Mug quickly when he was able to let a quick wrister go from in close. Cody Colfax made it 2-0 when he went glove side on an odd-man rush. Spare Darren Swick got Airmount going when he scored on a low point shot. Swick added a second when he took a lead a pass and knocked his own rebound out of the air. Josh Stubbs gave Airmount the lead with a shorthanded goal from his near his own goal line that just seemed to dip on the goalie at the other end. Nick Anderson made it 4-2 Airmount before the end of the first when he finally put in the last of many rebounds. Stubbs scored his second of the night on the powerplay when he slapped in a faceoff win. Jeff Prouse made it 6-2 when he was able to get a partial break on the powerplay and go backhand. Steffan Foster let a slapper go on a rush to make it 7-2. Zach Alton started a comeback for Mug when he found some room and went low glove. Kevin Lisabeth made it 7-4 when he got a breakaway and went high glove. Tyler Zylstra made it 7-5 when he let a slapper go that found the 5-hole. Alton scored his second of the night to make it 7-6 when he was able to circle out front and slap one home. Andre Behrens tipped one in on the powerplay to make it 8-6 Airmount and Brent Iler added an empty-netter to close out this high scoring affair.
It was a solid game in the first as both teams came out and had some chances. Airmount capitalized in the second when they got a 5-minute powerplay and were able to score a couple times. Mug did we to use some speed in the second to get some breaks and chances. It was good to see them claw back in this one, especially being down a line by the end of the game. A much deserved win for Airmount.

Jamie Vandenneucker scored first for Glass when he was able to tip in a shot from the circle. Patrick Dion tied things up for Source when he went low blocker on a 2-on-1. Spare Nate Bishop made it 2-1 Glass when he was able to tuck one under the goalie as he went by the net. Kurtis Burton made it 3-1 when he put a rebound upstairs. Spare Mark Young added 2 quick ones, the first he was able to find room 5-hole and the second was a slapper off a big rebound. Kurtis Burton notched his second of the night when he found room between the post and the goalie's leg. Ryan Kleinau made it 7-1 after he walked into a slapshot.

Dion scored his second of the night for Source and this one finished 9-2.
Glass looked like they were trying to prove something on this night and had a crazy first period. They were able to get multiple goals from different lines and that kept Source off balance. A solid effort in relief by Kyle Burton kept the Source at bay as well. Source seemed to be okay for the first bit, but then the goals started happening and the short-bench really started to show. The chances they did get were turned away and that added to the frustration.
Kurtis Burton, Jamie Vandenneucker, Jason Vandenneucker and Nate Bishop all had 3-point nights for Glass. Patrick Dion had two goals, Wade Kirby and Shane Rowe had 2 assists each for Source.

Spare Darren Swick opened things up for Glass when he was able to poke in the loose puck in the crease. Tyler Sergeant made it 2-0 when he put in a rebound from the door step. Jamie Vandenneucker made it 3-0 when he converted on a 2-on-1 while playing with 4 guys aside. Jason Vandenneucker followed that up, 4-on-4, when he got a breakaway and was able to get the shot under the glove of the tender. Tyler Sergeant added his second of the night when he took a long lead pass on a change and got in alone. Zach Alton got Mug on the board early in the second when he tipped in a point shot. Spare Nate Bishop made it 6-1 when he was able to get a a shot over the falling goalie. Tyler Zylstra made it 6-2 on the powerplay when he pocketed one in close. Spare Mark Young made it 7-2 when he finished off a cross-checked pass. Bishop added two more for the hat trick when he let a slapper go and then made a move on front to make it 9-2. Alton added a late one for Mug to make it 9-3.
Glass came out strong in this one. They pressured Mug all game and especially in the first. Many shots and blocks/steals frustrated Mug throughout. It wasn't for a lack of trying by Mug, it just seemed all their passes were a couple inches too far and they couldn't protect against a Glass breakout play. I am sure they will remember for next game.
Tyler Sergeant had a 4-point night for Glass, while Nate Bishop had a hat trick. Zach Alton had 2 goals for Mug.

Spare Richard Poredos started things late in the first for Team Visscher when he redirected a point shot. Josh Mulholland made it 2-0 when his slapper popped out of the goalies glove and into the net. Spare Quinn Weber made it 3-0 when he picked off a clearing attempt and sent in a high wrister. Spare Kyle Savage made a quick move and then went 5-hole to make it 4-0. Savage added another when he went low backhand to close this one out.
Team Visscher was under some fire in the first but were able to weather the storm. Their speed in the second came in handy as they took control early. Nolan Collard has back to back shutouts to make the team successful. Source For Sports played an excellent first period and were able to keep the pressure going. A hot goalie and some small misses left them stymied though. They were able to keep Visscher's regulars off the board and can take that as a good sign.

This was a really even game. Carquest was in tough against Airmount as the chances went both ways but they managed to keep the pressure on late to keep Airmount at bay. Airmount was able to hang with the league leaders and had some quality chances. They should take the positives from this game and build on them.

This game was all Glass as they wanted to prove something going into the playoffs. Their top scorers found their mark and they want to keep that going. Airmount got outplayed, but maybe it will give Glass a false sense of security when they meet next week. This team will not be easy to beat in the playoffs.
Jamie Haines had 3 goals and an assist for Glass. Kris Vanoord had both goals for Airmount.

It was a fairly even game despite the score. Mug seems to be finding their form and working well as a team. They were able to get some open ice and took advantage of it tonight. Source was getting shots, but they were missing the net a lot tonight. If they can dial that in, the offence will find itself.

Team Visscher came out swinging to try to grab a chance at 1st place. They played hard all game and were able to find some scoring as 3 of their top 4 were out of the lineup. Solid goaltending by Collard is going to make these guys a force no matter where they finish. Carquest came out strong but couldn't capitalize on their limited chances.

This was a showdown for Top Spot in B. Source came out strong wanting to get some momentum going into playoffs and they found their offence. They took advantage of their chances and found themselves alone in close a bunch. Will this rally the team for the postseason? Carquest seemed a bit shocked when Source came out on fire.

Jon Rosato kept his hot streak going when he opened the scoring for Team Visscher with a low shot from the circle. Spare Darryl Price made it 2-0 when his point shot found its way to the back of the net. Mike Evanitski added one on the powerplay that went up and over the goalie to close this one out 3-0.
Team Visscher was trying to make it to first place with a victory and they succeeded. Their defence kept Mug to the outside and made for an easier night for goalie Collard. If they can ride the shutout train, it will be a quick first round. Mug couldn't seem to get going and ended up getting most of their chances from the perimeter. Hopefully Mug can find that chemistry they had in the last month. Jon Rosato had a goal and assist for Team Visscher.
