This evening’s game was a fun and physical game against the Alaska Ambush. Â We were tied for points with the Ambush going into the game so I knew it would be a close one.
I started out the night by taking a slap shot to the ankle from my own teammate in the warmup. Â Ouch! Â I can now vouch that Mary Ann has a hard shot. 😉 Â Fortunately by the time my line went out, I could put weight on the foot and now it’s only a bit sore, nothing terrible. Â Ah well, wouldn’t be a tournament without some bumps and bruises!
The game itself was pretty fun. Â We were a bit discombobulated at times — I think everyone is starting to get tired — but there were good passes and good opportunities. Â I hit the post again (again! bahhhh!) and tended to get tied up in my own feet, but otherwise I had fun. Â Lisa was our center for this game and I enjoyed playing with her.
We got the one goal, a deflection off of a wicked shot by Andrea back at the point, and then Susan did an awesome job of defending her shutout. Â Yay Susan!
Not much else to report…the championship game against the Polar Cats is tomorrow at 10:30am. Go Burninators!
