Sports Briefs – Oct. 24

The benumbing battle for the bucket
Co-ed hockey started its season on Saturday night, with 41 players comprising four team in the battle for the fall season’s coveted “Golden Puck Bucket” award.
In the season opener, team “Orange Crush-em” battled neck-and-neck against team “Green Goons,” with goalie Lydia Brown making a record number of saves. The score remained tied the entire game, thanks to goals from Orange Crush-em’s Russ Walker, Steve Rich, Chris Russ and Karen Wetson. The Green Goons were down a few players, but held their own thanks to newcomer Andrew Snella, who scored one goal and assisted two others.
The Goons kept the game tied with additional goals by Chris Brown, Chip Duggan, and a top-shelf goal by Leslie Mastick. The final score was 4-4, with no shootout because of time limits.
The second match-up pitted the “Tighty Whities” against the “Dark Defensemen.” The two teams played a very even game, but the Tighty Whities just couldn’t connect with the net. Every shot they attempted was stopped by DD goalie Lydia Brown. Eventually, the Dirty Ds turned up the heat and scored five unanswered points to secure the win.
The win was an all-female victory, thanks to goals by Deb Mosely, Andrea Stineff, Sue Rennolds, Jen Nevak and Karyn Noyes. The ladies say they hope the men will step up their game next week.
The season is just getting started for anyone interested in playing, as there is always room for more. Contact Ingrid Harrald at, and stay tuned for pond hockey and three-on-three tournaments in December.
