Agro is a force to be reckoned with this year as they have such a well-rounded team. Agro did very well to kill off a 2-man disadvantage at the end of the game. Re/Max stayed strong by staying in this one, but just couldn't catch a break.

Shane Balcomb and 2 goals and assist for Re/Max. Jason Davis and Brandon Rohrer had the goals for Agro.

Kyle Jones one-timed a cross-ice pass to give Verne's the lead early. Rob VanVelzer tied it up for Fody's when he walked in alone and blasted one in. Braydon Rodgers made it 2-1 Verne's after some pressure in the zone. Spencer Meron had a burst of speed and was able to slide one in to tie it up as he drove the crease. Derrick Sweazy restored the Verne's lead with a point shot that went through a few legs. Darrick French tied it up again in the second when he was able to tuck one over the line. 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tough game for Airmount as they were missing a quarter of their regulars.
Digger Cronmiller opened things up for Mug with a goal from the door step. Spare Dave Mels showed his veteran savvy with back to back goals, one over a sprawling goalie and the other on a quick rebound. Zach Alton made it 4-0 Mug when he was able to weave through the defence. Brent Iker was able to get Airmount on the board late when he tucked one in between the post and goalie. Cronmiller scored quick in the second on a low wrister to make it 5-1. He added another for the 'hatty' with a short side goal. Spare Brian Beaumont made it 7-1 on a high shot that just beat the goalies glove. Bob Evans let one go from the point for an 8-1 lead. Trevor Cowlan notched another one for Airmount off a rush and a high shot. JJ Harden finished this one off from Mug with a backhander late.
Mug dominated this one from the get go. Airmount was short both coaches and their starter which made it hard for guys to click.

Blair Kersten gave Carquest their first lead of the night when he snapped one in from the slot. Andrew Davis added an empty-netter to make it 6-4. However, Swick added his second to make it an interesting last half minute.
Source came out strong, trying to build on their last couple games. Carquest did well to stay in the game being down early, but it seems once they score, they keep scoring. This was a solid game that easily could have went to OT.

The festive spirit was lacking in this one, but it was a solid game as both goalies made timely saves to keep it close.
