forum Replica Roex . If, as you have already said, you would buy an unparalleled Replica Gucci Handbags, take a good look at that forum and contact the salespeople personally to ask ALL the questions before proceeding to a purchase. And if the answers do not convince you, let it go.Of course, Replica Christian Dior Handbags Travolta apologized and the bad drink is over. At least on his part since he recently presented the Ocala Film Festival in Florida.In short, what is undeniable is that the style of Travolta is very personal and, largely, responsible for its success despite its scandals, so if the actor has chosen Breitling as his favorite Replica Roex Watches, we will not be the others That we deny to Travolta the great personality that transmits its aspect. And it seems that Victoria has managed to go a step further, getting her look and that of Replica Watches are referent, not for the general public, but for other celebrities so the relevance of what they wear is even greater.

Mighty Cucs couldn’t feed off strong starts in both their games vs Dragons

While both games started well for the Mighty Cucs, it just didn’t continue that way. Perhaps the biggest reason was due to the lack of tight coverage versus a team that can hurt you at will. The Dragons have some fire power throughout their line up, and whether its B.Daniele’s viscous wrist shot, E.Girouard’s precise one timer or even J.Mandracchia dangling with the ball for long periods of time, the order was tall to contain so many moving parts. Both results were fairly close with the first encounter sealed on three empty net goals while the second match was decided on a pair of tallies .B.Daniele riffled a hat trick in the first contest with all three markers coming-from the back end of the court. Surprisingly enough, J.Mandracchia only scored twice for how dominant he was controlling much of the play. With these results, the Dragons now sit on top of the second division and will try to remain there with only two weeks remaining.

Golden Knights in cruise control  pairing wins over RCGT Knights

Besides getting balanced scoring, the Golden Knights play strong defense just as well. They held the opposition to one goal in each game limiting them to only 22 shots. It was perhaps expected that both games would go the Golden Knights way, especially with the fact that they were fully loaded while the RCGT Knights relied on a depleted line up. Five different players contributed in the opener en route to a 5-1 victory. M.Labrie and S.Racicot would collect two goals each in the second encounter for a similar result. In the end, the Golden Knights didn’t give much, and controlled most of the play which led to a pair of easy wins.

Orient respond after ugly finish to HBHA Seniors

After a disappointing let down to start off their night, the Orient bounced back with a 4-3 shootout win over the HBHA Seniors. In one single period, the HBHA Seniors were in a league of their own ,scoring five times that led to a convincing 5-2 victory. The expectations remained the same entering the ensuing match for the HBHA Seniors, but the Orient had other plans. A late tally by M.Morin forced a shootout where M.Monteschio would come through as the only player to score between the two sides. The HBHA Seniors will look back and feel that they deserved better, especially after grabbing a 2-0 lead along with carrying a one goal margin for most of the game. F.Nasser was behind setting up two markers in the win for the Orient while E.Paradis-Levasseur can be argued was a major reason why the game went the distance. The net minder was brilliant which enabled his club to bounce back and steal the second match.

M.Kardum 2 big goals help rally Degenerates rally past Hungry Hippos

After looking sloppy in their opening frame, the Degenerates used a big second period and never looked back the rest of the way. The comeback effort was led by M.Kardum, who tallied twice in a vey short span putting the Degenerates in front for the first time during the night. There was no doubt that sequence gave the Degenerates more life entering the second game. This time, they made it a point to focus-from the beginning and grab that early lead. Once they jumped in front, the snow ball effect was in motion as they just continued to create plenty of chances that resulted in six unanswered goals. S.Marricco got credited the winner, R.Ricaurte went flawless for nearly three full periods in net, and the Degenerates continue to play some good hockey as of late.

(2)Hungry Hippos vs Degenerates(3)

(6)Degenerates vs Hungry Hippos(0)

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marin Kardum of the Degenerates. If not for his two timely goals in the first encounter vs the Hungry Hippos, the Degenerates would have likely dropped their opening game.

Brewers cant take advantage of early break

(4)Brewers vs National(7)

The Brewers caught an early break on Friday night. They hoped it would bring them a long way. Instead, that early break was followed up with a breakdown which saw them go empty handed. National was waiting for their net minder to get dressed, and in the process, the Brewers were awarded two team goals for delay of game. You always hope to build on those situations, but maybe National is just that strong. O.Valiquette is one of many pieces that can hurt you. The sniper did his thing riffling a total of four goals with the last three all coming in the third period. The Brewers got their lone tallies-from the very same Joe. Stefano as the only player to figure out D.Massa. This was a first of two games of a double header night for the Brewers.

Chiefs comebacks fell short to Sonic

(6)Sonic vs Chiefs(4)

Just when the Chiefs thought they had seized control rebounding twice-from a two goal deficit, one bad sequence had them chasing the game for good. S.Azzi was able to put Sonic back in front for the third time passed the ten minute mark of the final frame which proved to be just enough for a well  earned victory. The Sonic were able to celebrate this gratifying win thanks to a bunch of committed guys that created havoc and plenty of momentum. Its what you get when you play very hard while getting contributions-from many different players. All six of their goals came-from different teammates, with M.Pace and A.Amicone leading the way collecting three points each. The Chiefs had high ambitions prior to the game for trying to capture first place. For now, it looks like the standings wont be changing much with only a couple of games left over.

Brewers put up a serious challenge in close loss to Armos

(5)Brewers vs Armos(7)

Anytime you play twice in only three hours, you always feel it, especially a seasoned team like the Brewers. To their credit however, the Armos were forced to battle till the very end in order to hit the finish line first. The Armos may have felt like their 2-0 lead was comfortable enough for how things went in the first period that changed as the game went by. More and more the Brewers pushed, won some battles, and potted the next two markers for an even game. Perhaps the pivotal moment occurred by the mid way point of the third period. In just over a minute span, A.Minassian and A.Fonrose each scored to put the game somewhat out of reach for the Armos. Up until that point, this was anyone’s guess for who would take it. A.Fonrose was out of action for a while but looked like he hadn’t miss a beat The hard nosed forward was in full force collecting three points that included two big goals.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Olivier Valiquette of National. They only played two periods, but that didn’t stop a real sniper-from burying four goals.

United Arms secure important top two seed in close battle with Altius

(4)United Arms vs Altius(3)

The United Arms failed to hold a two goal lead versus the Altius, but A.Zakarian and A.Papazian scored third period goals that just held up in the end. The Altius were stuck chasing the game in order to battle back. P.Arkalis was eventually able to score an incredible high light reel goal early in the third period to even the score. The problem was that the United Arms would regain another two goal lead which made the mission that much harder for the Altius, especially with R.Ricaurte guarding his cage. They did narrow the margin fairly late on the power play thanks to M.Arkalis, but time just wasn’t there for an equaliser. This contest was treated like a playoff match between the two sides. The winner knew that it would guarantee them a first round bye which places them straight into the semi finals. In a division this competitive, the United Arms are glad to skip that first round do or die match up.

Panthers alarm clock set at the wrong time

(7)Panthers vs Armadillos(8)

The Panthers were playing the same old tune in the first portion of their game. Getting off to slow starts is something the Panthers have yet to figure out. Again, they fell behind but managed to put a solid effort till the very end only to keep falling short. Five out of their seven goals all came in the third period, and it still wasn’t enough. With this unfortunate result, the Left Wings will need to drop their game next week if the Panthers are to get in. For now, it will be a long waiting game for a team that know they can challenge with anyone, even the first place Armadillos like they did in this particular contest. The Armadillos thought they were in for an easy night after building a 3-0 lead. L.Panetta had a dominant performance scoring three goals and an assist and was perhaps vital to why the Armadillos squeaked this one out. If by chance the Panthers fail to get in, it would be unfortunate for a team that lost six of their games by only one goal.

M.Chartrand, P.Carone pace Horsemen to 6-3 win over Fatal Demons

(3)Fatal Demons vs Horsemen(6)

It’s a game of mistakes, and the margin of errors are very slim. The Fatal Demons basically made more mistakes compared to the Horsemen and ultimately paid the price. In the end, it was one brutal second period that decided this important match up. The Horseman capitalised four times during that stretch to put themselves in a commanding position heading into the third. The Fatal Demons did push back creating chances, but couldn’t hit the back of the net enough times. That’s perhaps M.Vinciguerra wasn’t having it as the net minder stood firm enabling his club to play with the lead. M.Chartrand and P.Carone each scored twice, D.Greco was quarterbacking the attack-from the back end while D.Sarno’s for check led to some turnovers. Overall, the Horseman played to their strengths and got the three points they deserve. As for the Fatal Demons, it looked apparent that a short bench just doesn’t fit an older teams make up.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Armen Papazian of the United Arms. The sniper was productive and clutch for his club bagging the winner as part of a three point performance.

Assadi Consulting inc clinch playoff spot on Y.Gazura’s overtime goal

(2)Assadi Consulting inc vs Left Wings(1) O.T

The Assadi Consulting inc were able to pick up crucial points against a team also fighting to get into the playoffs. For a while, it looked as though the Left Wings would have gained ground when D.Provost-Jarry opened the scoring just passed the two minute mark of the third period. Still without a goal-from that point on, the Assadi Consulting inc got their opportunity when awarded a power play. P.Doulis was able to take advantage, and all of a sudden this contest was again evened up. Even though the 1-1 score didn’t guarantee anything for the Assadi Consulting inc, it did force the Left Wings to be a little more courageous in trying to get the extra points. Neither side would budge in regulation which needed a five minute overtime to settle things. Unfortunately for the Left Wings, they blew their chance at collecting key points when Y.Gazura ended the game. The Left Wings are now stuck watching-from the sidelines in hopes that the Armadillos defeat the Panthers if they were to have a chance at getting in.

B.Sansotta’s 4 point game helps Brew Crew top RCGT Knights

(1)RCGT Knights vs Brew Crew(5)

B.Sansotta scored two goals and a pair of assists in Wednesdays 5-1 win over the RCGT Knights. He was able to figure in four out of the five Brew Crew’s goals with two of his helpers coming on the power play. For a long while, the game remained very close, and really took only one direction when R.Mancini scored early in the third period for a 4-1 lead. There was almost no way the Brew Crew would falter that kind of margin despite plenty of time left over. The RCGT Knights got their lone tally by R.Kilgour, who figured out C.Muccino early in the second period. This result puts the Brew Crew tied in first place with the Horsemen for the time being. If the Fatal Demons manage to defeat the Horsemen Thursday night in regulation, all three teams will share 15 points each.

Panthers fail to clinch but remain positive as they still hold the cards

(4)Panthers vs Punishers(5)

The Panthers didn’t get exactly what they wanted on Thursday night, but they remain fortunate enough in controlling their own destiny. Its never easy playing catch up, but the Panthers actually do a good job at fighting back when they are down. The problem is that they cant afford to be put in that spot. Tonight they trailed 3-1 after two periods only to fall short when C.Stamadianos put the Punishers in front late in the game. That was his second goal and third point of the night. The Panthers will look back at a key moment when they gave up a shorthanded goal that put the Punishers up 2-1. M.Blackman knows it’s a disappointing loss for his side, but will remain optimistic as he has a couple of scenarios that could favour his club in order to get in.

The SalumVino player of the night goes to Chris Stamadianos of the Punishers. Two of his three points were timely. His first goal came shorthanded to snap a 1-1 tie, and his second came late in the game to secure a close 5-4 win for his club.

(4)GK vs Capitals(2)

GK surge early in third period to top Capitals

Despite giving up the opening and closing goal of the game, the rest in between belonged to the GK. The Capitals managed to hang in there long enough but eventually realised it was done when M.David and F.Belisle each struck early in the third period for a 4-1 lead. It was clear that the up hill battle from that point on felt unrealistic for the Capitals having to go up against a team can shut anybody down. In his season debut, P-O Girouard did not disappoint forming his brick wall structure stopping close to 20 shots. The win saw four different players cash in with M.David’s third period marker holding up for the winner.

(2)Montreal As vs Black Knights(5)

Y.Derohannessian’s late shorty seals the deal for the Black Knights

Y.Derohannessian couldn’t have picked a better time than to notch a shorthanded goal. Although the Black Knights were in front 3-2, that tally pretty much summed up the game between the two sides with just over three minutes remaining. It was an overall solid performance from the two teams with each side carrying the play. M.Ianovale struck first to get the balling rolling for the Montreal As and didn’t give up their first tally till the four minute mark of the second period. Once the game was tied, J.Gagne took over bagging two in a row to put the Black Knights in the drivers seat. A.Lemay did eventually respond to reduce the gap but it was all for nothing as Derohannessian struck shortly after with a huge blow.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jonathan Gagne of the Black Knights. Big time players know when to show up when the game is on the line. J.Gagne was proof of that once again for the Black Knights collecting back to back tallies after snapping a dead lock 1-1 tie.

Le Rinque crowned provincial winners

Saturday September 25

Le Rinque crowned provincial champions

(6)Le Rinque vs dek Boucherville(4) (Final)

The stage was finally set for some of ball hockey’s finest talent to compete at its highest level in what turned out to be a wonderful afternoon . After Le Rinque edged out the Dek Lanaudiere by a slight 3-2 margin in the semi final round, Dek Boucherville was left standing in the way for the ultimate feat. Prior to the regular season and their playoff run, Le Rinque entered as the heavy favourites, and instead of folding under the weight of their own greatness, Le Rinque did exactly what was expected of them: They won the Dek Elite division. The players hailed the atmosphere in the establishment giving them that little extra adrenaline during the warm up that helped get them into the game. Once the ball dropped, Le Rinque managed to swat aside their opponent, their bugbear throughout the regular season but not in the final where Le Rinque were dominant for most of the match. Le Rinque’s depth and class proved to be too much in the end. Though Dek Boucherville made things difficult, Le Rinque were able to play around the Dek Boucherville controlling most of the play which resulted in a glorious finish. Many different players took turns finding the back of the net, an attribute that didn’t involve relying on any particular players, but that of an overall solid performance. Le Rinque have always been extremely good for a few years now reaching plenty of finish lines making tonight’s contest just another day at the office for Dahn Nguyen and his players.  In the end, the better team turned it up like a silver bullet proving once more that they are the real deal. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Dahn Ngyuen of Le Rinque for capturing the Dek Elite championship, and to Jocelyn Decarie of the Dek Boucherville, who took charge running a highly skilled team.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Karl Leveille of Le Rinque. Leveille was a force throughout the season, and especially when it mattered the most during the big game.

With this victory, Le Rinque will be the top seed representing Quebec at the 2022 Nationals held in Hamilton Ontario. The CBHA and TC were present to select players for camp in October for next years(2022) World Championships held in Laval.
