N.Fragos earns early shutout, G.Santacroce cracks barrier with two goals

The Young Gunz began their young season with a perfect start. N.Fragos was flawless in the opening game earning an eleven save shutout and G.DeLuca along with N.Fragos each scored to beat C.Stavriadis. For a first game of the season, the Young Gunz got it right from playing solid defense, getting timely goals and the expected goaltending from their leader between the pipes. Although the outcome was positive, the question remained if they can duplicate their efforts for the second confrontation. S.Sicuso , unhappy with his clubs poor display made sure to adjust for the second encounter. The veteran d-man played the entire match and made sure to get the maximum effort from all of his troops. With the help of P.Strobakis and S.Sicuso, the Last Minute benefited when A-J Belcher and G.Santacroce scored to finally get some scoring done. Santacroce had two big goals giving two goal leads twice. The Young Gunz fell behind in this match but showed plenty of resilience to narrow the gap within one, but couldn’t even the score. C.Stavriadis bounced back to earn the win in net.

Two for Two, 1 Timer set the tone for another dominant season

The 1 Timer once again served up a magical night of action by collecting two wins over the Jokers. The orange shirts got off to a tremendous start, after bullying and pressing the opposition throughout the entire court. With three different goal scorers in both matches, the 1 Timer have the luxury of balanced offence. J-G Perreault led the way earning four points that included three helpers. In both games, the 1 Timer wasted no time getting on the board that saw five out of their six goals in the opening frames. The power play worked just as well as their shorthanded unit. The Jokers have some fire power with names such as A.Dayan, M.Gagnon and M.Baccari but weren’t able to do much against F.Koch. The solid net minder allowed only one goal in two games and faced a total of 31 shots to collect back to back wins for his club.

J-P Boucher rock solid goaltending gives Les Carmonis points to the standings

In facing 35 shots in two games, J-P Boucher felt like a target at a shooting range. The talented net minder gave every possible opportunity for the Carmonis to get on the right start to the season. With the help of his captain J.Poirier’s buzzer beating goal, the Jokers gave themselves a chance to take the match in a shootout. J-P Boucher made that one extra save over his counterpart P.Assadi to take the opening contest in the breakaway competition. Unhappy with the result, Team X had the opportunity to return the favor in the second contest. But it was the Carmonis striking first courtesy of C.Desmarais. That goal forced Team X to take some chances where they eventually benefited. A.Jalilvand used a high rising blistering slap shot to solve Boucher. Then, D.Galloro had to tip a rebound after a shot from A.Jalilvand to take the lead. Les Carmonis didn’t go down that easy as they fought back to even the score when A.Ducharme found a way to sneak one by P.Assadi. At that point, the next goal was going to surely decide the outcome. On an innocent wrist shot from centre, R.Jorquera stunned both benches and especially the Carmonis net minder who wished he had that one back. That goal left just over a minute in the game where Team X killed off the clock to capture the win. A.Jalilvand collected five points for Team X to lead all teammates. As for the Carmonis, J.Poirier and A.Ducharme each scored twice but the story of the night was the solid goaltending display by J-P Boucher who did more than his share to help capture some points to the standings.

4 Team X vs Carmonis 5 S.O

2 Carmonis vs Team X 3

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to J-P Boucher of the Carmonis. From making plenty of key saves, to winning a shootout and playing the ball like a natural defenseman, J-P Boucher merits the player of the night.

(2)Les Coqs vs Wocafloka(5)

Les Coqs put to test, fall short in loss

It wasn’t up until the mid way point of the third period that the Wocafloka had some breathing room. Despite playing with a short roster, Les Coqs didn’t make the night easy for their opponent. R.Barillaro and M.Gendron scored in the loss. Wocafloka needed the help of their only two power play chances to shift the game their way. On both occasions, M.Latreille buried goals with the man advantage. Both sides have plenty of speed and used it well to their advantage. If not for penalty trouble, Les Coqs may have had a better fate. But power plays are part of hockey and when the chances are there, good teams will often capitalize. J.Lamoureux-Remo and N.Andrianacos aren’t too concerned after what they saw from their team. As for Wocafloka, the only expectation is to win, if not the season will be a failure.

(4)Bramabulls vs Werewolves(3)

Bulls open season strong, Werewolves ok with loss

If there is such a thing as a good loss than this would be a rare example of one for K.Miraldo and the Werewolves. Knowing how good the Bramabulls are, the Werwewolves came very close without four key elements to their team. In the win, A.Mirolla separated himself from everyone as the dominant forward caused more than handful of problems to the Werewolves defense. With the help of his line mates M.Lang and S.Mirolla, the established goal scorer put three behind goaltender B.Verducci. The Werewolves never had the chance to play with a lead but managed to tie the game on two occasions. The winner came by the six minute mark of the third period where A.Mirolla completed his hat trick. As expected, A.DiPerna assembled another deep line up and will plan to roll with it for the entire season. His formula for winning always consists on rolling plenty of players to wear down his opponents. Just like the other five teams, the Bramabulls are planning to go all the way.

(4)Fatal Demons vs Fat Roy(3)

K.Araujo’s late marker avoids overtime

K.Araujo grabbed a late winner with his second of the night to snap a 3-3 dreaded tie. The Fatal Demons wanted to make sure to play with the lead and did that when Araujo struck on the power play. It wasn’t long into the second period when P.Pailkopoulos doubled the lead, also with the man advantage. Fat Roy responded moments later courtesy of K.Kakivellis, who finally had the chance to solve S.Sauk. After a grueling battle for the entire night, P.Elizardo eventually tied the game with his second only to see it slip away. His equalizer lasted barely 20 seconds. The Fatal Demons just finished capturing the E Sunday division surprising the entire ball hockey world as heavy underdogs. Many may look at them and wonder how they got it done, but high hockey IQ with tons of experience always plays a factor. Teams shouldn’t be fooled by their regular season record as it’s often not the priority for the veteran side. Even if the Fatal Demons finish with one win or twelve wins, the playoffs is when they elevate their game. As for Fat Roy, plenty of young talent is on the rise. The mission is left to C.Zafiropoulos to find the right combinations and strategies for his team’s success. But the potential is there as twelve games will be just enough time to find some chemistry.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Anthony Mirolla of the Bramabulls. Mirolla scored in every frame that included the winner in tight 4-3 affair over the Werewolves.

(2)Street Ballers vs Les Balcons(5)

Les Balcons depth simply too much for Ballers

Backed by a deep roster, Les Balcons will be a menace to play against. The Street Ballers found themselves chasing their opponents for most of the night having barely any time and space to generate scoring chances. M-O Lavoie ignited two first period goals with the help of W.Hindley, who went on to add a third assist. The Street Ballers missed a golden opportunity to pull within one on the power play, instead M-A Dubois struck for Les Balcons who never looked back. The captain of the Street Ballers M.Gibeault did his part scoring once while setting up Y.Dube on the power play. E.Rousseau earned the win in net after facing 25 shots.

(9)SBS Trashers vs Eagles(1)

Trashers open season with convincing win over Eagles

The SBS Trashers showed its attacking power on Thursday night with a lopsided 9-1 win over a familiar opponent. Already with a solid line up, the SBS Trashers just got stronger with the return of F.Gentile. His three goals and one assist led all players in scoring. The game witnessed its first goal when the captain E.Panzera took advantage of a power play opportunity. Then just under four minutes, M.Elfassy doubled the lead heading into the second period. The Eagles hoped to rebound after a slow start but things only got worst. The SBS Trashers owned the second period adding four more tallies to take away any sort of life from the Eagles. The only bright spot in the loss came when Y.Marineau scored late to spoil a perfect night from R.Pampena. If tonight was an indication of how the season will go, than the SBS Trashers look like they will be the team to beat. Two other squads didn’t start as they prepare for what will be a difficult challenge.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Filiberto Gentile of the SBS Trashers. The sniper showed what he’s all about by posting three goals and a helper in a 9-1 rout of the Eagles.

(0)Underdogs vs Tropics (4)

Tropics blank Underdogs, 4-0, in season debut

Goaltender A.Boulis made 16 saves, and three Tropics scored including a two goal game by S.Wilcox. The Tropics won every frame striking at least once in every period. Unable to get much offense going, the Underdogs had two four minute power play minutes that went dry. P.Scuccimarri and M.Ventura also scored for the Tropics who don’t seem to have missed a beat after winning last summer’s E division championship. It may have come as a loss but Joseph Constantin isn’t too concerned knowing that there is still some rust to shake off before entering a groove.

(5)Park Avenue vs Punishers(7)

Captain John Fidrilis sparks two goals, Punishers hang on to 7-5 win

The captain led the way striking first as part of a 6-1 two period lead for the Punishers. Whether or not the Punishers let go, the Park Avenue woke up late only to fall short. J.Rochon mounted the comeback bagging three goals and an assist on D.DiGiantonnio’s late tally. The Punishers cramped most of their offence by the second part of period number two with four tallies. N.Pitsikoulis had a multi goal game in the win. M.Russo didn’t have a strong finish but may have been the difference maker for two periods allowing only one goal on 12 shots. One thing’s for sure, is that the Punishers will be putting up goals on a regular basis.

(2)Faceless vs United Arms(3)

Late tally propels Arms past Faceless

The goal was deflating. No doubt about it. With the game tied at two goals, D.Charbonneau struck at the right time giving the United Arms the slight edge. Faceless looked at the clock at that point that had less than four minutes remaining, and despite making a push, it just wasn’t meant to be. The United Arms used a solid team effort with other goals from N.Macrozonaris and G.Jerjian. K.Haroutounian was solid in net pushing 26 of 28 shots. In a game that could have gone either way, the United Arms will grab the points while Faceless know that they can jump start their season in their next encounter.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Steven Wilcox of the Tropics. His two goals and one assist was a big part of the offence in a 4-0 rout of the Underdogs.

Wednesday May 18

(1)Les Raymonds vs Bulldogs(7)

M-A Beaumelle turns heads with impressive six goal performance

Scoring six goals in any hockey game is pretty rare, but M-A Beaumelle did the unthinkable for the Bulldogs on Wednesday night. You know you’re a natural goal scorer when you can find the back of the net in any circumstance. The talented forward scored a power play goal, a shorthanded marker and four even strength goals while feeding L.Allard for a 2-0 lead. At no point did Les Raymonds seem to be in the game. The back breaker occurred by the mid way point of the match where Beaumelle scored on Les Raymonds power play for a 3-1 lead. M.Turgeon started the night strong with three helpers and W.Goyer had a near perfect night allowing only one goal.

(5)Bolts vs Money Shot(4)

Bolts walk away with close 5-4 win over Money Shot

Every time the Money Shot fought hard to get back in the game, the Bolts kept on striking. The Bolts didn’t have an easy night but put themselves in control of the situation by never giving up their lead. Five different goal scorers contributed in the win. It’s not often that an empty net goal gets credited as the winner but J.Chakik can add it to his personal stats. Both sides played an intense brand of hockey that needed to go down to the wire. The difference ultimately occurred in the second period where the Bolts won the frame 2-0 with goals from A.Melo and M.Baccari.

(6)Horsemen vs Deadlast(4)

Horsemen earn 6-4 win to start season strong

The Horsemen weren’t phased at all after finding themselves down 2-0.After a scoreless opening frame, the orange balls started to go in. Led by their captain, T.Zermalias contributed with two goals as the only multi goal scorer for both sides. The match shifted into one direction as of the early stages of the third period when J.Argyropoulos scored on the power play for a 5-2 lead. Deadlast didn’t help their cause trying to kill the games only three penalties. Without their leader in the lineup, C.Zafiropoulos will have the chance to analyze from a coaches point of view and find the necessary adjustments for a more promising display.

(6)Primetime vs Acolytes(9)

Run n gun style favors Acolytes

It’s one of those games that the net minders hope to forget quickly. While each side focused on scoring goals, both goaltenders were left to dry. B.Palfalvi faced plenty of shots and scoring chances that had him and his defense scratching their heads. The same was to be said for G.Langelier who allowed six goals on 28 shots. But it was the final result that mattered in the end as the Acolytes found a way to get the extra goals. S.Leblanc led the way bagging four tallies while M.Patry earned six points that included two goals. The major problem that Primetime had with this result was that they let a 4-1 first period lead slip away.

(6)HC Inter vs NWV(1)

HC Inter make immediate impact, rout NWV 6-1

Once F.Logen scored late in the first period with the man advantage, the HC Inter only got better as the game went on. M.Hebert added fuel to the fire by igniting back to back goals right before D.Pasquini made the score 4-0 with one period to go. HC Inter dominated in every aspect of the game winning the power play battle with two markers. The only thing that was taken from a perfect night was when G.Santacroce scored fairly late to take J.Pietroniro’s shutout away. That tally left just over three minutes in the game where the net minder faced a total of 24 shots.

(1)Pendelis vs Monsters(5)

Monsters roll past Pendelis to start season on right root

P.Klitirinos and J.Marchica each scored twice as the Monsters cruised their way to a 5-1 win over Pendelis. Klitirinos used a back breaking shorthanded marker in the first period to put his opponents on their heels. J.Liopoulos kept the Monsters in the game most of the way, stopping 23 of 24 shots that saw D.Mansour as the only goal scorer for Pendelis. He didn’t score but R.Grisales helped make three goals happen with perfect feeds. It’s not the ideal start to the season, but T.Daoud has more than enough time to get his troops on the same page.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marc-Antoine Beaumelle of the Bulldogs. Anytime someone scores six goals in one game, will surely without a doubt earn the player of the night.

(1)Smackdaddys vs Ultimate Hockey(4)

Ultimate Hockey off to solid season debut

The Ultimate Hockey got off to a good start, outshooting and outscoring the Smackdaddys to end the opening frame up 2-1. A.Bien-Aime certainly knows how to make his presence known. In the early stages of the second period, the veteran bumped his team up to 3-1 with a speedy breakaway swipe. That tally put the Smackdaddys in a huge bind having to fight from behind. If that wasn’t enough, Rubens Morne completed the night bagging a late power play goal for his second of the contest. The Ultimate Hockey, despite missing a few elements used their speed to take advantage of the Smackdaddys overaggressive defense. M.Dorismond had a near perfect night stopping 16 of 17 shots. It’s the not the start they hoped for but Jimmy Korakakis isn’t too concerned as there’s plenty of time for his well established hockey team.

(7)VE-TANK vs Bramabulls(3)

VE-TANK shock Bulls with four third period goals

B.Deslauriers completed his hat trick with a pair of third period goals that came as part of four tallies and a 7-3 win over the Bramabulls. Each side rode a working power play exchanging two goals each. For two full periods, the Bramabulls held their ground keeping the game close but that couldn’t be said the same for the third where the VE-TANK used their speed to overpower their opponents. A.Jalilvand contributed with a pair of tallies, J-P Meunier collected three assists and M.Trivisonno was good when it counted by allowing only one goal by the final frame. The expectations may have been set high for the Bramabulls but tonight wasn’t a good display from their end. A.DiPerna remains confident as the season is still too early to judge. As for the VE-TANK, this was just another day at the office as the young squad know what they are capable of.

(4)Communists vs –Blocks(0)

Captain J.Adamou two goals leads Communists past D-Blocks

The leader of the Communists showed immediate power on Tuesday night by riffling two big goals in a 4-0 shutout win over the D-Blocks. After opening up the scoring, J.Adamou used a blistering slap shot that hit the post before sliding behind C.Scalia for a 3-0 third period lead. T.Provost-Blais and J-P McCann also scored while P.Provost-Jarry denied every D-Blocks shot and opportunity. Despite playing with a sense of urgency for most of the match, the D-Blocks struggled to score on this night. A.Facciabene will put this one behind him quickly as he prepares his club for a better outcome in the D-Blocks next match versus the Smackdaddys.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Ainslie Bien-Aime of the Ultimate Hockey. The silent leader hasn’t missed a beat by bagging two big goals in a 4-1 win over the Smackaddys.

Bramabulls B division champions

Monday April 18 (B Finals)

(2)Spartans vs Bramabulls(4) Game 2

Bramabulls over power Spartans to capture B division title

Aside from a few moments, there was little bite from the Spartans who struggled to get any goal scoring done for most of the night. The Spartans were done in by their inability to cash in on their scoring chances .J.Beaudry, backed up by an air tight defense lived up to the task going flawless for nearly the entire game. The Bramabulls scored late goals in both the first and second periods and made the score 3-0 before P.Plaisir got the better of Beaudry late in the match. Still not out of it yet, the Spartans notched their second tally when J.Adamou riffled a slap shot from the blue line to get within one. That goal forced A.DiPerna to use a timeout. After gathering his troops, the Bramabulls took plenty of possession with just over a minute remaining giving no time for an equalizer. D.Morency seized the opportunity by hitting an empty cage for his second of the contest. If the Spartans had a night in which nothing went right, then the Bramabulls had a night in which nothing went wrong. Led by their captain A.DiPerna, and the presence of many talented players the, Bramabulls reached their goal on Monday night as B division champions. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Anthony Diperna and the rest of his troops for getting it done.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes out to Jonathan Beaudry. After facing 20 shots, the veteran net minder stood tall and protected a 3-0 lead for nearly the entire night to earn his biggest win of the season.

Using the tagline, “Masters Elevated” to promote the event, the marketing machine is in full flight. Event information, including links to hotel packages, travel information, and the sport schedule can be found at www.Banff2016Masters.com.
 
Says Shelley Callaghan, President of the CBHA, “We are so thrilled that Canada will be the Host Nation for World Masters this year. Over the years, so many countries have hosted us, and now this is our chance to welcome Masters athletes from across the international ball hockey community to our home. Banff is an incredibly beautiful part of our country, and we can’t wait to share the real Canadian experience with everyone. The sport competition is going to be outstanding of course, and with thanks to the assistance of our Provincial association, Wild Rose Ball Hockey Alberta, we know that this event will deliver a fabulous travel experience to our visitors also.”
 
With two arenas confirmed at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre acting as host venues, the Tournament Celebration Night confirmed on June 5th, a trade show of ball hockey vendors and suppliers from the Banff area slated to be showcasing at the event, it’s looking like being a fantastic week.
 
Hotel accommodation is booking up quickly, and teams are encouraged to reserve their accommodations at event hotels before the end of April, 2016.
 
Says John Loisis, President of the WRBHA, “Wild Rose Ball Hockey Alberta is proud to be the host Province for this prestigious event. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our province just like it is for the many players who will be travelling to represent their respective countries. We look forward to celebrating this amazing week of ball hockey in Banff with the players and fans".
 
While the website will be updated regularly, athletes and supporters are encouraged to follow the event’s social media pages for the most current information.
