(5)Icons vs Bramabulls(4) O.T

T.Bozinakis, C.Stamadionis lead Icons to 5-4 ot win over Bulls

C.Stamadionis’s second goal of the game three minutes into overtime lifted the Icons to a thrilling 5-4 win over the Bramabulls on Tuesday night. The Icons also got scoring by T.Bozinakis who riffled a pair by the second period. Both sides came off championship seasons which made them both clearly hungry for victory. In a game that could have gone either way, C.Stamadionis gave his club plenty to cheer about after receiving a perfect feed by G.Chountalos. Despite the loss, T.Karasek looks to be in very good form producing points on every goal that included a pair of tallies.

(1)Smackdaddys vs Team Finland(2)

M.Raimondo timely shorthanded goal holds up as winner

Scoring with a player less occasionally happens in ball hockey but the Smackdaddys won’t be digesting it to easily after dropping this contest. Rather than tying the game on their power play, M.Raimondo doubled the lead for Team Finland with a brilliant shorthanded effort. The Smackdaddys did eventually respond late in the second period when M.Chenier finally solved J.Lombardi. With still plenty of time left over, the Smackdaddys couldn’t force the extra time. J.Lombardi faced over 23 shots allowing only one goal. At the other end, S.Morante was equally as sharp denying 23 of 25 shots.

(4)Icons vs Smooth Sailors(7)

Smooth Sailors four first period goals hold up barely in victory

The Icons must not have seen this coming. After capturing a victory only an hour ago, the Icons got stunned early allowing four first period goals. In that span, M.Testolina began the onslaught striking twice, M.Cerrone netted a power play goal and N.DeGregorio ended the frame strong for a 4-0 lead. The Smooth Sailors had to have been glad to get that kind of the start to the game because the second period was completely one sided. The Icons returned the favor netting four goals of their own. P.Assadi hit the net twice during that sequence setting up a third period for the taking. After five minutes of play, M.Testolina came back to haunt his opponent. The shifty forward collected his third goal of the night and set up two more teammates for empty net markers.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Chris Stamadianos of the Icons. After scoring a third period goal, Stamadianos netted his clubs biggest tally in overtime to start the season on the right track.

Venom win shootout battle, Team X responds with authority

At no point did Venom trail in the opening game, but a shootout was still necessary for the positive result. J.Samaha and A.Jalilvand each scored only two minutes apart in the first period lifting Venom to a 2-0 lead. Determined to finish the frame strong, Team X notched two late goals to level the game. The second period was similar to the first with Venom jumping ahead. T.Perluzzo buried a power play goal which forced J.Kontitsis to tie the game once more for Team X. Each side tried their luck in the shootout. Unable to solve M.Trivisonno , all three shooters were snake bitten by the net minder. Venom got two out of their three goals in the breakaways courtesy of B.Deslauriers and J.Samaha. Despite dropping the contest, Team X played well enough to win the game and it showed even more in their second encounter. J.Pantelis dressed up for the first time, and with no hesitation, the skilled forward made plenty happen. His four helpers and one goal provided the extra offence needed giving Team X a 6-2 lead after one period. J.Kontitsis benefited on three occasions by the new addition while A.Lanni scored twice. No matter how hard Team X tried to formulate a game plan towards B.Desaluriers, the power forward somehow finds a way. Venom got two goals, two helpers and a shootout marker by their sniper. In the end, it was all about damage control. Team X showed instant chemistry with some new faces to their lineup and look to be in fine form early in the season.

(5)Venom vs Team X(3) S.O

(8)Team X vs Venom(4)

1 Timer and Jokers trade identical scores

With both games featuring only five goals, the 1 Timer captured the opening contest in the shootout while the Jokers took the second game in regulation time. M.Gagnon netted an early goal and the Jokers led 1-0 up until J.Guye-Perrault tied the game on the power play. Each side had three power play chances and attempted the same amount of shots towards the net minders. The only slight difference in this contest was in the shootout where T.Daigneault notched the lone tally. After netting an early goal in the second contest, the 1 Timer saw their offense go dry the rest of the way. The Jokers bounced back when the very same M.Gagnon tied the game on a feed by A.Balais. With goals very hard to come by, both sides knew the importance of the next one. The Jokers were the ones to break the spell when A.Sarrigiannis snapped the dreaded 1-1 tie. Fromm there, the match went into shutdown mode for the defending champs. A.Mancini had to face plenty of quality chances to earn a hard fought win.

(2)1 Timer vs Jokers(1) S.O

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jimmy Pantelis of Team X. In only one game, the crafty forward produced seven points that included six assists.

(3)Butchers vs Les Aces(7)

Four goals from J.Sandri powers Les Aces over Butchers

J.Sandri found the back of the net on four occasions and Les Aces can now erase the bad start to the season they had only a week ago. The new addition scored his clubs first three goals for a 3-1 lead after two periods. The Butchers fought back early in the third period nodding a pair of quick tallies by T.Oliveira and M.Zampino but failed to carry the momentum long enough. Les Aces responded with force generating the games next four goals. S.Groulx snapped the 3-3 tie for the winner and D.Brousseau collected a big win in net after facing 22 shots.

(4)Shockers vs Red Nose(7)

Red Nose reel off 4 unanswered goals to rally past Shockers

Y.Gazura started the comeback with a power play goal while setting up two teammates in the span of only three minutes. The Shockers kept the game close trailing by only one and missed a golden chance to even the score after giving up a shorthanded marker. S.Simitsakos scored with a man less and Red Nose regained a two goal cushion with half a period remaining. Seven different players found the back of the net with goals all coming after the mid way point of the match. In the loss, the Shockers tallied twice with the man advantage. C.Debonis and T.Salberg each scored on the power play.

(7)Lumberjacks vs Hit List(5)

L.Ruiz’s two third period goals lift Lumberjacks to victory

Down 5-4 after two periods, the Lumberjacks stormed back to take the game. L.Ruiz not only tied the match but provided the go ahead marker that ultimately held up for the winner. Most of the goal scoring occurred by the second period with the HitList out dueling the Lumberjacks 4-3.S.Denis and D.Ruiz also scored twice in the win while C.Gingras helped set up four goals. This was the Hit List’s first game of the season, and despite dropping the contest, goal scoring won’t be a problem. L.Richard notched a pair in the loss with the help of Y.Laforest, who had a four point game.

(4)Nighthawks vs Brew Crew(1)

Nighthawks overcome big test vs Brew Crew

It’s still very early in the season but the Nighthawks were pleased to defeat a team like the Brew Crew. Each side carries plenty of experience and quality players that could only suggest for a good battle. The difference occurred by the second period with the Nighthawks winning the frame 3-1.S.Koulieris snapped a 1-1 tie only a minute before P.Charbonneau scored to make it a 3-1 game. Fromm there, the Nighthawks closed off the match with their stubborn defensive style. S.Sauk earned the win in net allowing only one goal by M.Rheaume.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jonathan Sandri of Les Aces. In his first game, J.Sandri made an immediate impact. The forward produced four goals and an assist to help get his club on a winning path.

(10)Brewers vs Fast and Furious(2)

Brewers cruise to lopsided victory over Fast and Furious

J.Colombo felt abandoned early in the second period when his short bench and tired defense couldn’t hold up the Brewers pressure. E.Pellerin began the onslaught by breaking a 2-2 tie for his second of the night as part of a three goal performance. The Brewers had plenty of players converting. A.Lanni and R.Hagen each had four helpers and G.Platanitis shut the door for over two periods to record an easy win in net. Both sides figured this match was going in only one direction with only one spare versus a three line group. Regardless the situation, the Brewers are glad to bank some early points. As for the Fast and Furious, it’s no secret that it will take more bodies if they plan to get any sort of success.

(3)Devil Dawgz vs Stones(4) O.T

T.Settino saves night for Stones, nets O.T winner

Who other than your most valued player to get things done. Quiet in terms of accumulating  points during the game, T.Settino saved his best for last. The skilled player back handed a rebound on a short angle to bury his first of the season. Both teams played your typical chess match styled game. The Devil Dawgz led 3-2 heading into the third period but couldn’t hang on to it when D.Ramada evened the score. S.Sicuso helped set up two goals for the win while A.Guillaume and M.Archambault were the Devild Dawgz best players combining for four points.

(3)HBHA Seniors vs Hawks(5)

Hawks top new addition Seniors in tight battle

There was nothing easy about this contest for the defending champs, who needed a full out effort to defeat the HBHA Seniors. After grabbing a 2-0 first period lead, the Hawks fell apart early in the second period giving up two quick tallies. But that didn’t stop A.Moscato by regaining control as the forward bagged his second only moments later. The Hawks eventually went up by a pair courtesy of E.Collela’s second bullet. In an effort to battle back, P.Lapointe gave plenty of hope after scoring with seven minutes left in the game. The HBHA Seniors were than awarded a golden four minute power play opportunity with still plenty of time left over. Unable to capitalize, the Hawks defended well getting exceptional goaltending by S.Pare to secure the win.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Tony Settino of the Stones. The Stones won an overtime game versus the Devil Dawgz thanks to a brilliant play by their start player.

(5)River Rats vs Thunderballs(4)

Late push propels River Rats over Thunderballs

The River Rats were able to avoid overtime with only 31 seconds left in the game. Deadlocked at four, P.Lavoie snapped the dreaded tie giving the River Rats three clean points to the standings. At no point during the match did the River Rats trail, but the Thunderballs refused to go away by tying the game on three occasions. Each side spread out their offence with no one scoring more than once. P.Lavoie, apart from the winner helped set up F.Dominianni and M.Testolina to finish with three points.

(2)Left Wings vs Northstars(1)

Left Wings find a way, take tight hockey game

The Left Wings weren’t sure how this game was going to turn out knowing that most of their regulars were out of action. But with the few players they had, they made the most of it resulting in a close 2-1 win. J.Adamou, no matter the circumstance can heavily be relied on as the d-man scored first to get the Left Wings on board. The Northstars did level when J.Bourgiaze finally beat P.Assadi , but that was all the veteran net minder would concede. After being awarded a second power play, the Left Wings made sure to capitalize. J-P McCann broke the tie late in the second period and the Left Wings never looked back. P.Assadi faced 23 shots to earn the win in net over his counterpart Y.Dupere, who also had a solid night allowing only two goals on 21 shots.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Patrice Lavoie of the River Rats. The forward made an immediate impact scoring a late go ahead goal to finish with three points.

Thursday September 22

(5)French Connection vs Street Ballers(4) S.O

French Connection top Ballers in shootout

M.Page and J.Farrese helped the French Connection get a good start to the season netting two out of the three shootout goals. The French Connection took the lead twice but the most important lead belonged to the Street Ballers when M.Lapierre put his club up 3-2 in the third period. It didn’t take long after that for J.Dumont of the French Connection to respond and level the game. Each side played through almost 15 minutes without a goal. F.Peloquin secured the win for his club by denying two out of the three shootout attempts. During the game, J.Farrese collected two points before faking out S.Sauk in the breakaways for the winner.

(3)Werewolves vs SBS Trashers(6)

Well oiled Trashers continue from where they left off

It’s only the first game of the regular season but the SBS Trashers will forget what it’s like to lose hockey games. If everyone shows up, the defending champs will be heading for another successful season and possibly a second championship. F.Gentile and P.Nadeau will produce points regularly as both players nodded a pair each. Apart from those two players being an issue, the Trashers have a clicking trio involving J.Scalia, M.Elfassy and their captain E.Panzera. Those five players take care of their five man unit which results in goals almost every time. Unless you play them properly and stay out of the penalty box, the SBS Trashers can be defeated, but it would take a full 45 minute effort. Tonight, the Werewolves didn’t have it and aren’t too concerned knowing the season is still young.

(0)Eagles vs Carnage(2)

Absent captain stalls offence

It’s not to say that if K.Certosini was ready to play that the Eagles could have sparked some offence, but it sure didn’t help having their leader sidelined with injury. Unable to score, the Eagles kept hitting a wall. B.Madonis made it look easy at times as the experience net minder made sure to deny every shot and chance towards him. One of the two rare goals of the contest came at the eight minute mark of the opening frame when F.Pace opened the scoring on the power play. The captain is still showing he’s got it after receiving a feed from A.Haikim to get on board. J.Bourlakos later added an insurance marker with less than four minutes remaining.

(3)Chiefs vs P.E.Y.O(7)

Chiefs, unable to execute game plan

It’s one thing to talk about what needs to be done, but it’s another when you just can’t execute it. Prior to the match, the Chiefs focused their attention on a certain trio that ultimately made minced meat out of them. B.Deslauriers, J.Courteau and A.Jalilvand looked at times like they were playing pond hockey. That line combined for six goals and 14 points, something that every opponent needs to worry about. Despite the loss, the Chiefs didn’t play for a while and have been conditioned to start most of their seasons very slow. With time and a couple of adjustments, the veteran club will be up and running, especially when it counts the most.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Bobby Madonis of Carnage. The stubborn net minder said no to every orange ball his way to record an early season shutout.

Wednesday September 21

(7)Armadillos vs Les Coqs(0)

Armadillos silence the early bird with convincing win

Sometimes things are easy to predict when eyeing the man power both teams have. The Armadillos came fully loaded versus an unprepared group. Despite hanging in there for a while, Les Coqs couldn’t keep up by the third where the Armadillos ran away with the contest. P.Koutsogiannopoulos struck first and got his second to make the score 6-0.K.Koutsogiannopoulos didn’t score but was responsible for making four goals happen. The few times that Les Coqs had their shots and chances, D.Mattar made sure to keep his cage clean.

(0)Dragons vs United Arms(3)

K.Haratounian slams door shut in win over Dragons

The United Arms had to have been satisfied with the way they started the season. After getting a pair of timely goals and stressing a solid defensive game, the three points felt well deserved. Led by their captain, G.Missakian made the score 2-0 early in the third period as part of two tallies on the night. J-F Aumais opened the scoring by the mid way point of the first period. The Dragons fired all they could towards H.Haratounian, who denied every shot his way. The Dragons found themselves spending too much time in the penalty box which came to bite them in the end.

(7)Punishers vs Raging Rhinos(1)

Punishers routs Rhinos in season opener

The Punishers scored by committee as seven different players struck to find the back of the net. Despite the lopsided score, the Punishers trailed 1-0 and only got on board shy of the mid way point of the match. From there, they took total control of the game. The captain led the way as J.Fidrilis struck first to even the score. Most of the damage occurred towards the end of the second period with four goals going in just two and a half minutes. N.Makeen faced 21 shots that saw M- Piche as the only player to solve him.

(2)Jets vs Underdogs(9)

Underdogs depth pays dividends

The Underdogs have stock piled their club and it showed right away in their season debut versus the Jets. Completely outnumbered, the Jets didn’t have much time breathe or do much with the ball. Using their four lines up front and a solid five d-man unit, the Underdogs only got better as the game went on. The bulk of the offense was generated in the third period with six goals going in. Apart from A.Ziade’s two goals, no other player scored more than once. C.Malkoun didn’t have to face many shots with only seven dressed players from the Jets. The net minder recorded the win after facing a mere 13 shots. The Jets do have some skilled players but were missing the bodies on this night.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Krikor Haratounian of the United Arms. After facing 20 shots, the net minder stubbornly protected his cage to earn an early season shutout.

...

Wednesday September 21

(3)Primetime vs UHC(5)

UHC explode early with 4 first period goals

Primetime didn’t know what hit them when the UHC took the court on Wednesday night. In the short span of only four minutes, the UHC managed to score four times. A couple of those goals came as fast as cannon balls. P.Elizardo scored twice in that span to put his team up 4-1 after the first period. Far from done, Primetime regrouped as the game went on. The men in blue scored once in every frame all coming with the man advantage only to fall short. The UHC didn’t help their cause spending plenty of time in the penalty box but it didn’t matter in the end. S.DelGaudio also scored twice in the win. J.Sanoudakis faced 26 shots to earn the victory in net and would have likely allowed less if not for some unnecessary penalties from his teammates.

(3)HC Inter vs Fat Cats(6)

Fat Cats secure win over HC Inter in third period rally

It took only ten seconds for this contest to change direction. The HC Inter led 3-1 at one point but couldn’t hold their lead as the Fat Cats battled back to take the game. The turning point occurred when S.Hrivnack and F.Atkinson scored in the short span of only ten seconds to put the Fat Cats up 4-3 in the third period. After being awarded a late power play chance, the Fat Cats buried a fifth goal by D.Brunetti to secure the win. The Fat Cats had no heroes in this contest with six players finding the back of the net. G.Sangiovanni kept his team in it despite being down to start the season on the right track.

(3)Les Raymonds vs RBK Knights(5)

Short bench comes to haunt Les Raymonds in season opener

Unless Les Raymonds had two M.Deninno’s in their lineup, this result was to be expected. Les Raymonds had only seven players dressed and got all their scoring done by M.Deninno. To his help, N.Beaudry found the sniper on all three occasions. But this just goes to show that a better prepared team usually prevails. The RBK Knights used their full bench over the 45 minutes to grind out their opponent. And it showed by the third period where they won the frame 2-0.R.Manek scored his second early in the third period right before J.Zeitounian sealed it with his clubs fifth goal of the night.

(1)Chaos vs Hellfish(9)

Hellfish avoid championship hangover with authority

It was only a week ago that the Hellfish lifted the F Wednesday trophy, and with barley time to celebrate it, the men in red showed no signs of slowing down in their season debut. After jumping off to a 2-0 first period lead, the flood gates opened by the second. M.Chartrand scored two very quick goals as part of his eventual hat trick. D.Laurin and J.Rodriguez found the back of the net twice while J.Roblin got the other goal for the Hellfish. Chaos had the unfortunate task of going up against the recent champs. G.Dantiste gave Chaos something to celebrate as the only player to solve B.Verducci. It’s not the start they hoped for, but the season is young and time will only make things better for a club that’s been out of action for a while.

(4)Scorpions vs Horsemen(3) O.T

Scorpions wear their smiles early in overtime

With the help of a 4 on 3 power play opportunity, the Scorpions made sure to cease the moment. F.Martin ended the game after receiving passes from C.Fragkiudakis and B.Richard just 30 seconds into the sudden death frame. The Scorpions had the chance to take it in regulation time but couldn’t hold off C.Doulis, who tied the game fairly late on the power play. Evenly matched, this game could have gone either way. Both goalies faced the same amount of shots. P.Patel got awarded the win over his counterpart M.Vinciguerra.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Francis Martin of the Scorpions. The Scorpions forward ended the night after bagging the O.T winner vs the Horsemen.

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.

2016 ISBHF World Masters Championships

The Canadian Ball Hockey Association (CBHA) is deep in preparations with Provincial hosts, the Wild Rose Ball Hockey Alberta (WRBHA) and the International Street and Ball Hockey Federation (ISBHF) to deliver a spectacular World Masters Championship event in Banff this year.


The 2016 ISBHF World Masters Championships will be held from June 1st to 5th, welcoming teams already confirmed from the US, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Greece, India, Italy and of course, Canada comprising of at least thirteen Men’s national teams in total and six Women’s national teams.
 
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. On Twitter the event can be found via its handle @Banff2016, and on Facebook via its full name, “2016 ISBHF World Masters Ball Hockey Championships”.
