The First period was booooring.
Both teams skated like through molasses with languid shots of goal which both goalies (Dov Grumet Morris for Rampage and Jake Allen for Rivermen) easily stopped, caught and handled by covering the puck as often as possible.
(I kept looking for the vaunted Cheechoo skating as 14 for the Rivermen, but he was mostlyt on the bench-more later). In the Second, the speed and action rev'ed up and both teams scored, solo Nigro for the Men in Blue, and Marshall with Selleck for the home team. Which was wearing special sweaters with FIRE enmblem in honor of Firefighters and Police.
Well, someone must have told them to add some fire to their skating, which became much more obvious in the Third, when the Rampage made it 2-1 with a PP goal by Kearns,
Photos will follow after our return and uoploading.
And of course, the Rampage/Checkers game this afternoon.
Until then, chers readers.
And it wouldn't be hockey without a fight or two if the officials didn't keep breaking them up. Selleck versus Ponnich was kand inconclusive.
