Championship weekend update :
The Consolation game saw Madison knock off the Fargo Force 3-2.  Fargo had a short bench as soccer star Mark Lank skipped the game to whine about his sore foot.  Madison was the early season favorite but ended up losing a couple of key players to injury early in the season.  As much as this hurt their offense, they still had the best defense in the league and still had a lot of fun.   Fargo lost because Mackin was too tired to yell when he was open.

The Championship game featured the underdog Lincoln Stars vs. the Tri-City Storm. Lincoln jumped out to a quick lead 12 seconds in which helped give them some confidence. The game went back and forth with both goalies making some great saves.  Lincoln was up 5-3 when Tri-City started to dominate play. The Storm were all over Lincoln and came close to scoring when a puck was sitting on the goal line. The refs blew the whistle because they lost sight of the puck just before the Sherriff could tap it in.  That would have made it 5-4. So the score remained 5-3 and on the next possession, Papa Roach got off a lucky shot that found the back of the net.  You could tell it was a whiff job, but at least it didn’t hit the post. The puck seemed to bounce Lincoln’s way quite a bit. The final score ended up 8-3, but that is very misleading.  It was a good game, back and forth.  Tri-City had some great pressure offensively, but somehow Lincoln blocked some shots and Terry made some timely saves.  Matt played a great game in net for Tri-City.  He saw a lot of quality scoring chances and even stopped a couple of breakaways.  One of the K brothers decided to go to Cleveland for the game, so that hurt Tri-City’s offense as he is one of the league’s top scorers.  All in all, it was a great game and it was fun to play in.  There was a lot of joking and laughing on the ice.  That is exactly how it should be.

The night ended with a cookout which was heavily attended.  Special shout out to the Sherriff for manning the grill once again and to Erik for his planning skills.  It was a great night with a lot of good laughs.  I’m sure we will all enjoy this first Sunday off, but it won’t be long before September seems far away.

On another note, please keep in mind as renewals come in we will be making some roster moves to help balance parity.  Fargo is losing a top scorer (Derek Knudson is now a Fighting Saint in the SCHL), Tri-City is losing a goalie, and Madison needs some more help offensively.  We will be working with the captains to balance rosters and maintain parity while trying to keep friends / co-workers together as best we can.

Thank you all for a great season. It was a lot of fun. We looked forward to coming to the rink every Sunday and hope everyone felt the same way. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please speak up and let us know.

THANK YOU AND HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!

After watching last night’s game, I think it’s safe to assume that everyone had a nice Easter. Do you guys even move your feet out there? We are hoping it was just ham over load. One of the teams forfeited due to lack of available players because of the holiday. So the first hour was an open skate, 3 on 3 with a couple of subs and 2 goalies. A couple of the guys played in the pick-up hour and the second game. Crazy bastards. Thanks to Dan Nason and Greg Lantz for stepping in and playing between the pipes. trade

The only game of the night was between the Lincoln Stars and the Tri-City Storm. It ended up being 10 on 9, but with added bodies on the Stars the league felt it was best to credit each team with a tie. The final was 7-1 in favor of the Stars, but the Storm didn’t have their best game. The K brothers were very quiet in this one. Little Irish came back, DM returned from a back injury, and Papa Roach hit the post again for the Stars so all is well. The league had to reprimand the marine who took off on a break away with seconds left in the game with a 5 or 6 goal lead. Don’t mind him folks, he’s just not that bright. Good guy, couple of sandwiches short of a picnic, and talks a lot but this guy has the IQ of a hot dog. We’re talking about a guy who licks beer off the ground. Anyway, despite what the score indicates both goalies played well. Matt made some great saves, most goals were rebounds and 3rd or 4th whack at it type of goals. Terry played one of his best games of the season. It’s always fun playing Captain O’Mara’s team, good bunch of guys and plenty of laughs. O’Mara smelled like ham really bad, by the way. We have reports at the Rockland Press that O’Mara rolled in ham and wiped ham fat all over his body while eating dinner because he thought it made him faster. Get your ears checked bud, it makes you fatter. Not faster.

In other news, the top 4 teams locked up playoff spots with the ties. Seeding is yet to be determined. See you Sunday.

In Sunday night’s first game, we are still not sure exactly what happened. The Lincoln Stars had 6 players. Tri-City was up by a touchdown early in the second period. Seriously. 7-0. Then 2 subs showed up to help Lincoln out. Suddenly Papa Roach stopped hitting posts and with fresh air in the lungs, Lincoln started scoring.  There was a lot of great passing in this game. Goals were left on the ice. Posts were hit. Some shots were saved. No one really knows what the score could have been. The score was 12-6 with a minute left. Lincoln scored 3 goals in the last minute of the game to make the final 12-9 with Tri-City picking up the victory. 21 goals scored. The fan was on his feet the entire game. This was a fun game for everyone except for maybe the goalies. Guys were laughing and joking on the ice. Exactly the way this league should be. Lincoln has lost 5 games in a row. They suck. Oh, I forgot. We all suck. But Lincoln really sucks. The beer guy showed up with beer so it was a good night after all. Continue reading

To all Relics players;

 Over the last few weeks, there has been an increase in physical play including roughing type penalties. We understand that hockey can be a frustrating sport. But it’s only frustrating because we simply aren’t that good, or we aren’t as good as we once were. That’s why we pay to play hockey. With that in mind, we expect all players to keep emotions in check and be a good sport. Most of us still have to go to work Monday. We will do our best to protect our players and goalies. Moving forward, any roughing penalty will result in a penalty shot and a 10 minute misconduct. Any player with 3 misconducts in one season will be asked to leave and will not receive a renewal. The referees will begin enforcement this Sunday, March 20th. If you have any questions, please see Erik or Todd. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.”
