(5)Dragons vs Raging Rhinos(8)

Raging Rhinos take over in third to defeat Dragons

A third period relentless effort by the Raging Rhinos led to a high scoring 8-5 result. The takeover began by the five minute mark of the final frame when T.Angelis scored the first of five goals that came-from all different players. With a golden opportunity to regain their lead, S.Labrecque capitalized on a power play for his second of the night that ultimately stood up for the winner. M-A Piche also scored twice getting the Rhinos off to a good start with three straight points. The Dragons added a good piece to the line up in N.Goncalves, who immediately impressed scoring three goals and a helper. Despite having two good periods, the Dragons were nowhere to be seen by the third where the Raging Rhinos completely dominated the frame.

(8)Bramabulls vs Deadlast(7) S.O

Deadlast cough up lead in third period collapse

How a 6-2 lead with four and half minutes slipped away will leave Deadlast mind boggled for days to come. After working hard all game to get to that point, C.Zafiropoulos and his shorter bench felt like they just fell off a steep cliff with nowhere to be found. That ugly feeling kept persisting after a scoreless overtime leaving only a three man breakaway competition to decide it all. During that span, J.Mandracchia and M.Marrone pulled through with shootout goals while G.Follano was able to stop two of three attempts to earn the win in net. The Bramabulls didn’t depend on any heroes for their incredible comeback as four different players scored in a very short span. As for Deadlast, Y.Gazura had a very good night riffling a hat trick along with an assist on C.Zafiropoulos’s second goal of the night.

(7)Carnage vs Spartans(0)

Carnage too much for new addition Spartans

The growing pains of an inexperienced team will be something that the Spartans will need to cope with in the beginning of the season. Up until they find some chemistry and figure out line combinations, J.Tesolin will have some important decisions to make in hopes of improving the situation. Despite the lopsided score, the Spartans held in there for half the match allowing only one goal till the ten minute mark of the second period. M.Pace is very familiar to finding the back of the net as the sharp shooter tallied three times to get much of the offense going. Both sides had their chances with the man advantage but it was only Carnage taking advantage with two power play goals. The Spartans didn’t get to shoot much which enabled B.Madonis to have a calm night recording a 14 save shutout.

(1)Street Ballers vs SBS Trashers(6)

SBS Trashers move the carpet with 3 power play goals

Visit the penalty box and there will be a price to pay. The Street Ballers didn’t have a great night trying to kill off some penalties which led to convincing win for the SBS Trashers. On three occasions, M.Marcantonio, M.Panarello and the captain E.Panzera each tallied with the man advantage after moving the ball incredible well. At no point were the SBS Trashers in any sort of trouble during the match. The only slight mishap came when Y.Dube scored at the 5:45 minute mark of the third period to spoil R.Pampena’s shutout. P.Hodhod had the most goals scoring twice while his captain and F.Gentile had the most points with three apiece.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marco Pace of Carnage. The natural sniper whaled three goals to spark the Carnage offence in a 7-0 rout of the Spartans.

(3)Venom vs Smackdaddys(2)

J.Rochon powers Venom with all three goals

J.Rochon did for Venom what he does for Legacy and that is to score goals. The fierce centreman met high expectations by netting all three goals in what was a battle till the very end. The Smackdaddys were the ones to strike first with two straight tallies by M.Destounis and D.Auger. However, that sequence turned on dime only minutes later when Rochon struck with two markers in three minutes. The scoring appetite wasn’t done just yet as a feed-from J.Vinet enabled J.Rochon to complete a devastating hat trick. After dominating the first half of the game and out shooting Venon 22-13, the Smackdaddys started to fade away slowly giving up three unanswered goals.

(2)Fat Roy vs Tropics(7)

V.Crivello scores hat trick as Tropics topple Fat Roy

V.Crivello’s offensive output helped lead the Tropics to a convincing 7-2 win over Fat Roy. While he may have scored most of his clubs goals, V.Crivello is only a part of the threat for a side that will be potent all season long. The Tropics have plenty of speed and unlimited skills that will surely have them battle for a championship. The match ultimately was decided by the second period with the Tropics sparking four unanswered goals. A.Deluca had a slow night for his standards as the goal scorer only struck once for the game winner while setting up two teammates. Fat Roy got their lone tallies by J.Pantelis and G.Papadatos as the only two players to solve A.Boulie.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jason Rochon of Venom. The forward produced all three goals as part of a remarkable comeback vs the Smackdaddys.

(2)Publiks Crew vs Primetime(7)

D.Zabitsky shines with three special teams goals

Leading the way for Primetime was D.Zabitsky, who notched two quick shorthanded goals to give his club a valuable 3-0 lead in the first period. Primetime continued their pace from-there outscoring the Publiks Crew in every period. After posting his two shorthanded markers, D.Zabitsky added another tally on the special teams completing his night with a hat trick on the power play. The Publiks Crew had major issues addressing an important part of their game, and that is the lack of production with the man advantage. They did however score once on the power play but that was only once on six attempts. Adding to that, they gave up two shorthanded goals that completely changed the direction of the match.

(3)Brew Crew vs Acolytes(0)

C.Muccino makes 29 saves en route to shutout win over Acolytes

C.Muccino played a supporting role denying every shot his way to help lead the Brew Crew to an early season win. His solid play was just as effective as his defense in front of him. The Brew Crew like to suffocate their opponents and the Acoltyes learned this first hand unable to get any scoring done. A.Lanni and D.DiGiacomo scored first period goals and J.DeSua added a late insurance marker to cap off a perfect night. D.Catalano was behind setting up the first two tallies for the Brew Crew. Its only two games in but Les Acolytes aren’t satisfied yet collecting only one point to the standings.

(3)Mtl Huskies vs Horsemen(5)

T.Mader and T.Zermalias score two goals each to edge out Huskies

Forward T.Zermalias scored twice including a helper on M.Mamoulides’s game winner, and T.Mader also contributed with a pair to help lead the Horsemen past the Mtl Huskies on Wednesday night. Despite trailing by a couple of goals, the Mtl Huskies showed their resilience by nearly tying the game. R.Estrela led a third period effort as the captain scored twice only minutes apart to pull his team within one. In hopes of level ling the match, the Horsemen eliminated that possibility when T.Zermalias tallied late in the game. Neither side dominated the shots column or had many chances on their power plays as only one penalty was taken all night. The Mtl Huskies have been showing some good signs for a new club and will only get better if they continue to battle hard game in and game out.

(4)Les Raymonds vs Hellfish(10)

Hellfish score in bunches in 10-4 rout of Raymonds

The Hellfish won’t have any issues scoring as they did plenty of it against Les Raymonds. With the help of N.Bourgeois and F.Benahamadi, both players ran up the score by a collecting a hat trick. The damage had already been done early on in the contest when the Hellfish scored two early second period goals for a 6-1 lead. At that point, Les Raymonds just hung in there but managed to get some goals through B.Verducci. S.Lecavalier scored twice while setting up A.DeCarolis in the loss. It was a night that Les Raymonds could have used M.Deninno to their lineup, who would have at least helped with some damage control.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to David Zabitsky of Primetime. His two first period shorthanded goals stunned the Publiks Crew that was never able to recover as the game went on. Zabitsky added a power play marker to complete his hat trick and merit the player of the night.

Monday May 22

Defending Champs start strong

The recent champs started their regular season play in style on Monday, jumping off to a pair of convincing wins. The Punishers were in fine form-from the beginning providing a 3-0 lead that saw all three goals go in a two minute span. A.Centis opened and closed the scoring for the Punishers while F.Russo faced 14 shots to collect an early season shutout. In hopes of bouncing back by the second contest, Les Carmoni de Fabreville went through a similar fate allowing three first period goals. The Punishers went on about their business getting scoring efforts-from three different players to dictate the match. Still, after three straight periods, F.Russo has yet to concede a goal but that changed when J.Poirier finally got to the net miner by the mid way point of the second period. A.Dayan made an immediate impact by accumulating five points in two games and will be heavily relied on with the loss of last season’s top scorer.

(0)Carmoni de Fabreville vs  Punishers(4)

(6)Punishers vs Carmoni de Fabreville(1)

Stones use late high-lite reel goal, Team X responds to even the score

What looked like was surely headed for a shootout changed when C.Fragiudakis and T.Bergomi combined for a beautiful play. Both players went on a two on two rush that had Fragiudakis provide a perfect feed for a tap in goal for the power forward. Unhappy with the way things ended, Team X fell in a deep hole early in the second game. But after responding with a pair of tallies before the end of the frame, Team X continued their onslaught adding three straight tallies for a 5-2 lead. D.Galloro and A.Lanni each scored twice while A.Zarzour scored the other with a hard slap shot. The Stones didn’t decide to call it quits just yet as they pulled their net minder with just over four minutes left in the game. That move nearly worked as two goals went in that left still about a minute for the equalizer. And despite having the chance to tie it, the Stones just fell short as time eventually ran out. Both sides played a chess match styled game that forced players to find their own space and take shots-from the outside. The only thing lacking from-either side may be their lack of overall speed but the rest is there for the two veteran clubs.

(1)Team X vs Stones(2)

(4)Stones vs Team X(5)

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Fabio Russo of the Punishers. After facing 30 shots in two games, the net minder allowed only one goal.

(6)Shockers vs Lumberjacks(4)

T.Salberg’s third period hat trick powers Shockers past Lumberjacks

All three of T.Salberg’s goals came in the third period, turning a 2-2 tie into a 6-4 win to start the season on the right track for Shockers. Both sides knew it was going to be a grinding type of game. With that, came two power play goals by the Shockers and a pair of special team markers for the Lumberjacks that included a shorthanded tally. Neither side was able to get enough momentum for long stretches but the Shockers found a way to be better by the third. J.Blackman and D.Boyd each scored with the man advantage for the Shockers .The Lumberjacks saw their usual suspects go to work as C.Gingras and D.Ruiz combined for five points in the loss. Its only one game into the season but the Shockers have shown from-their previous sessions that they will be incredibly hard to beat.

(4)Team Cuba vs Fatal Demons(12)

Fatal Demons destroy Team Cuba in strong start to season

It didn’t take long for the Fatal Demons to find their dazzling offensive rhythm against a team that has some adjusting to do. For the Fatal Demons, it was business as usual as their chemistry and experience took over-from the very beginning of the match. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Team Cuba, who despite have the players are far away-from the chemistry required. In tonight’s case, five different players (M.Destounis, P.Santullo, M.Chenier S.Koulieris and D.Ugaldez each scored twice to get the better of S.Sauk. The Fatal Demons created plenty of openings that led to many odd man rushes. M.Trivissono still had his work cut out for him but fared well in net facing 24 shots for the win. E.Girouard provided some of the goal scoring for Team Cuba as the veteran as yet to slow down posting two rockets.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Troy Salberg of the Shockers. His third period hat trick made the difference in a close 6-4 win over the Lumberjacks.

(2)Black Knights vs Red Lite(4) Game 3

Red Lite crowned again as best team in hockey

After only three games in, Red Lite defeated the Black Knights 4-2, to complete a three game sweep and win the Premier division once more. Despite a respectable effort, the Black Knights got deflated in the third period where Red Lite capitalized twice less than a minute apart. J.Provost-Blais snapped the dreaded 2-2 tie for his second with the man advantage, and M.David put the final dagger only moment s later, also for his second that surely provided enough of a lead with eight minutes remaining. Every game was close in this series but the Black knights couldn’t get that timely goal to get any sort of advantage. The saying of good teams always find a way to win surely summed up this series. Red Lite, whether they trail or play with a tie will more often than not find a way to get the job done. Once again, the ball hockey giants proved to everyone how good they really are by winning the Premier division. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations goes out to Carl Ghilarducci and the rest of Red Lite for capturing the A division title.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joel Provost-Blais. The forward scored back to back goals that snapped a third period tie along with providing an assist to finish with a solid three point night.

Note that both Red Lite and the Black Knights will be representing Quebec at this years Nationals. Red Lite will be classified as QB1 and the Black Knights will be QB2.The event will take place from August 7 - 13 at Saint John New Brunswick.

(3) Red Lite vs Black Knights(2) Game 2

J.Bradley slams door on Knights with two third period goals

The Black Knights were firmly in control of Monday night’s game and seemed to be heading to an even series with Red Lite. That was, until the last eight minutes of the hockey game. That’s when Red Lite down 2-1, got desperate and managed to score two goals both by the very same J.Bradley. The Black Knights were clearly ready to start the night with two first period goals by J.Mandracchia and S.Nowakowski. P-O Girouard was in his zone and was playing lights out up until a late second period power play marker by J.Provost-Blais got the Red Lite on board. Still, the Black Knights were in control and had one period left to go with their slight 2-1 margin. But when you play Red Lite, and lead by only one goal nothing is in the bank up until the final buzzer. In tonight’s case, the Black knights saw their series take a turn for the worse by letting those two goals go in. Like old cliché’s they’ll have to take it a game at a time to try and bounce back. As for Red Lite, next week will be business as usual as they’ll try and put an end to the series.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jeffrey Bradley of Red Lite. In time of need, the forward struck twice in the third period turning a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead.
