The Barracudas played two spirited games this week. On Saturday the Wings (12-13) took on Dwarf Giraffe without either of their regular goalies. Louis Rasch played net with no goalie equipment, and did a great job in giving his team a chance. John Miele opened the scoring for BC and Kevin James added one also and the first period ended 3-2 in favor of DG. In the second however DG would score 4 more unanswered goals and the period ended 7-2 DG.
Not to go down easily BC roared back in the third with Willy Gill adding one and John Miele adding two more. Johns third goal came on a strong move along the left boards by Kevin James, who won the puck and dished to John for the score. This made the game 7-5 . Penalties would come into play against BC and they could not recover shorthanded. Ryan Keegan , John Ramano, and Joel Miele all played well in this tough loss. BC is looking forward to seeing this team in the play-offs with a full squad.
The Rangers (8-9) also put forth a valiant effort with a short bench against DG on Sunday. Timmy Zimmerman played hard throughout and was probably the best player on the ice for either team. He made a beautiful pass to Mike Dougherty through the neutral zone which Mike cashed in to make it 1-0 BC. Brian Wallace (who also had a great day) added another and it was 2-0 after one. The second opened up with DG scoring 3 unanswered goals to take the lead. BC tightened up and Brian added 2 more to complete his hatrick and BC
led once again 4-3 after two.
In the third period the rested bodies of DG eventually wore down BC and they took the lead 6-4, but BC would not go down easily. Mike Dougherty added his second with 2:49 left to play, which made the score 6-5 in favor of DG. BC came close in the final two minutes but could not get the tying goal. Matt Gill was strong in net. Philip Bekmesian, James Miele, Andrew Knee, and Johnny Wagner all played hard in a great effort.
