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.

(3)SBS Trashers vs Bramabulls(2) S.O

SBS Trashers erase 0-2 score to stamp it in shootout

The SBS Trashers may have been down for most of the night, but their confidence never wavered. First, P.Manousos cut the lead in half with a late second period power play goal, and then with only two minutes left to go, K.Hrivnak's desperate shot-from far somehow went through a crowd to even the score. The Bramabulls, despite missing half of their roster approached this game the right way. Surely it helps playing with a 2-0 lead, but nevertheless they still had to work to build it and protect it for most of the match. With neither side able to solve it in overtime, the SBS Trashers took the extra point in the shootout. P.Manousos was the only player to score right after R.Pampena made two straight saves to preserve the win.

(2)Carnage vs Les Rouuuges(4)

J.Hassan hat trick downs Carnage

J.Hassan turned into an instant hat trick hero by owning the second frame with two unanswered goals for a comfortable 3-1 lead. Following his surge, A.Guillaume put the victory beyond doubt just before the period ended. One very bad frame by Carnage was all it took for Les Rouuuges to gather up some points. Carnage drew even in the first fifteen minutes and won the final period thanks to a power play goal by their captain F.Pace. R.Ricaurte faced 26 shots and turned aside 24 to earn his first win in net for Les Rouuges.

(5)JLR Brossard vs Nighthawks (8)

Nighthawks storm by JLR Brossard with 4 second period goals

The JLR Brossard had to endure eight minutes of their worse hockey this season. This contest was deadlocked 2-2 before they completely fell apart allowing four straight goals. Some of the Nighthawks top players broke the game wide open with M.Chenier striking twice, L.Dulcetta collecting three quick points and A.Jalilvand causing havoc for P.Assadi, who had better nights. Despite the bad stretch, the JLR Brossard showed some life early in the third period posting two quick goals. Maybe the most significant moment occurred shortly after when they were awarded a power play chance to pull within one. But with R.Ranieri occupying the net along with a sound defensive core, the Nighthawks killed it off and added two more tallies to close off a decent night. L.Dulcetta scored in every period while adding two assists.

(9)Mighty Drunks vs Chaos(2)

Lack of players reflects the final score

Having one sub versus a stacked hockey team is only asking for problems. Both sides must have figured that the end result would heavily favour the Mighty Drunks, who are having a career season. However, this game was close for a good stretch until the juices dried up for Chaos. S.Govas snapped a 2-2 tie early in the second period, and the Mighty Drunks cruised-from that point on adding six straight markers. E.Garon, Y.Dube and S.Govas each scored twice while L.Bavellas dished out the ball several times resulting in four assists.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jafar Hassan of Les Rouuuges. Hassan had a stellar performance scoring three out of his clubs four goals to merit the honour.

(5)Fat Cats vs Les Raymonds(3)

Fat Cats pull away late for 5-2 win over Les Raymonds

F.Atkinson and E.Panzera each scored power play goals and G.Sangiovanni made 19 saves to defeat Les Raymonds on Wednesday night. After carrying a slight 2-1 lead heading into the third period, the Fat Cats were than able to secure the win by winning a wild frame 3-2.G.DeMarinis had his fingerprints in the Fat Cats first four markers that included a multi goal performance. Les Raymonds did strike early in the contest courtesy of Y.Leroux, but found themselves chasing the game as of the mid way point.

(1)Kentucky Blue vs Punishers (6)

Strong first period was all it took for the Punishers

By scoring three times in less than nine minutes, the Punishers did all their work for the night to collect another victory. Even though the Kentucky Blue attempted to battle back with plenty of time left over, the trailing side kept realising how hard it was to answer the bell. There only goal came as of the nine minute mark of the third period when M.Stoico spoiled N.Mackeen's shutout. The Punishers used a shorthanded and power play goal to widen their lead. P.Arkalis was only player to score twice while P.Karvouriaris continues his tear adding three more assists.

(4)Team Haiti vs United Armenians (5)

United Armenians overcome slow start to edge out Team Haiti

The first five minutes for the United Armenians looked like a team disinterested. They gave up two quick goals-from the very same D.Vericain. Fortunately, G.Jerjian responded immediately and all of a sudden the United Armenians would slowly begin to play better. As a matter of fact, they played more than just good as they replied with four unanswered goals that put them in the driver's seat. H.Jerjian was involved in that mix bagging a pair that included the winner.

(1)Hellfish vs HBHA Masters 37+(6)

An early ride leads to an easy finish for the HBHA Masters

It didn't take long for the HBHA Seniors to convince the Hellfish that this game belonged to them. By using wave after wave of pressure due to their very deep bench, it was only a question of time that a wave of goals would eventually go in. The great thing about their offense is that no one in particular is to be relied on. The Seniors saw six different players find the back of the net with no one accumulating more than two points. The Hellfish normally defend better than what they showed early on, but not in tonight's case as they had no answers to slow down a more experienced hockey team.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Gino DeMarinis of the Fat Cats. The dynamic forward did it all by setting up two power play goals while striking twice to finish with an impressive four point game.

Captain J.Palmitano leads way again for Mighty Boyz

J.Palmitano was at his high scoring best again. The captain had a hat trick in the opening game to help his club beat Les Reds 4-1.The Mighty Boyz were clearly ready to start the night posting three first period unanswered goals. Despite their bad start, Les Reds adjusted by the second encounter focusing on a tighter game plan. They still allowed the first goal but responded early in the second period to keep the game tied. Neither side was than able to crack the barrier which led to a shootout. F.Nasser struck first for Les Reds and P.Lucas responded for the Mighty Boyz as the only two players to score in the breakaways. Once again, M.Palmieri didn't disappoint as the goaltender stood solid allowing only two goals in as many games.

Breakout night for the Tocas captain, Chic Choc modifies for a split decision

At any given time, S.Marricco will cause nightmares for the defence and goaltender. The Chic Choc had to deal with S.Marricco driving to the net and stood witnessing the sniper bury four goals in what was a high scoring affair. The first game appeared to be put to rest with the Tocas jumping off to a 4-0 lead. And regardless taking the contest, it wasn't anywhere close-form what they were expecting. The Chic Choc erased a terrible sequence by responding in massive way posting all five of their goals in the final frame. Unfortunately, they just couldn't reach in time. The good news for the Chic Choc was that they knew a different outcome was in the making by the second game. By finishing strong, they managed the strike first and build a 3-1 lead on scoring efforts-from M-A Verville, M.Laroche and J-R Lemay. Another key reason for the win came courtesy of their net minder. F.Peloquin was able to shake off a bad start by getting himself back on track for the second match.

Mighty Drunks misses out for maximum points

Its one thing to defeat the Punishers once, but to do it twice, is quite improbable considering how strong they are this season. However, the Mighty Drunks missed out on an opportunity to do it twice simply because the Punishers didn't have all their key players. Granted, they did take the opening game barely by a 4-3 margin. The Punishers knew that if they wanted to even the miniseries that a good start would be the key in the second game. In the first period alone, N.Pitsikoulis struck first and C.Stamadianos posted back to back tallies to catch their opponent off guard. The Mighty Drunks perhaps didn't see that coming and were forced to play like they did in the opening contest if they planned to complete a productive night. And even though the improvement was there on behalf of the trailing side, there was almost no way that the Punishers would let this one slip away. Both sides traded two second period goals that saw Stamadianos complete his hat trick.

Newly added M.Carpentier saves the night for the 1 Timer

When the 1 Timer led 3-0 after one period, they had all but sealed the victory. But somehow it wasn't over. The United Arms scored five goals in just over six minutes to come-from behind and steal a victory that the 1 Timer thought they had. The comeback was led by a few factors, but perhaps G.Jerjian being the key reason as the forward scored twice while adding an assist. Soon after that game, the 1 Timer had to shake off a heartbreaking defeat and re focus if they planned on evening the score. For a second straight encounter, they dominated the first period, this time building a 2-0 lead heading into the final frame. Still, nothing would be set in stone for a side who just came off a collapsing defeat. However knowing this, the 1 Timer took nothing for granted and made sure to play a fill committed period. M.Carpentier had dressed for the first time this season and made an immediate impact with three goals that included two in the final twelve minutes. To his help, J.Dias set up three markers while J.Guye-Perrault and S.Gravel each had two assists.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joey Palmitano of the Mighty Boyz. The captain was a significant reason why his club collected four out of a possible six points. The power forward riffled a hat trick in the first game, added a key assist in the second and nearly won it in the shootout only to get denied.

(2)HC Mutts vs Fatal Demons(8)

G.DeMarinis ups the ante with four goals

After making headlines only a week ago to earn the SalumiVino player of the night, G.DeMarinis did it one better in this game versus the HC Mutts. Half of the Fatal Demons goals all came from-DeMarinis that included three on the power play. Entering the night, the HC Mutts knew they had a difficult ride ahead of them. They played with only two spares but still managed a decent start tied after one frame. But with two periods still left to play, it was inevitable that the Fatal Demons would run over their opponents. The next six goals all belonged to the veteran side that saw A.Jalilvand spark a hat trick while K.Araujo and E.Medrano collected four assists each.

(6)Butchers vs Lynx(9)

Lynx put it into gear after slow start

It certainly wasn't the start that the Lynx expected. By taking a few penalties, the Butchers took advantage of the situation striking twice with the man advantage. The good news for the Lynx was that the let down lasted only so long. Once the second period began, this contest took a turn with the Butchers unable to contain a much better Lynx breakout. J.Lang used his finishing touch three times while J.Mason strung a pair. Even though the Butchers dropped another contest, there were some positives that they can take. They added three significant pieces in the last couple of games and could eventually be within the mix of competing in closer battles if they can manage all their players to show up.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jeremy Lang of the Lynx. With his club trailing by a pair after a slow start, the captain sent a clear message to rally his troops by igniting three goals and a helper.

(3)P-Ball vs Red Lite(4) O.T Game 3

K.Kuczmarski bats in a beauty to close out series, Red Lite crowned Champions

Trailing by three goals after an ugly first period, the P-Ball rallied to tie the game 4-4 only to see it vanish by overtime. Even though the push was great for the P-Ball, it just wasn't good enough in the end. The sudden death frame was only two minutes old when K.Kuczmarki's incredible eye hand coordination came into play. The Red Lite forward made something that looks so difficult so incredibly easy by batting the ball right past P-O Girouard. Prior to the goal, J.Gagne will be wondering for a while how he missed two golden opportunities to extend the series. The P-Ball captain wasted no time-from the overtime face off creating two very good chances for himself only to get denied twice by C.Lantin. This was the first of three games that could have easily gone either way. Unfortunately for the P-Ball, they didn't get that extra break necessary to make a series of it. Red Lite did the right thing by getting the better start which only put the pressure on their opponents to respond. They got scoring efforts-from five different players that included a sweet back hand breakaway goal-from J.Daoust. In the end, like good teams often do, they find ways to win. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Carl Ghilarducci and Red Lite for adding more hardware to their already full trophy cases.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Kevin Kuczmarski of Red Lite. By using his instincts and hand eye coordination, the Red Lite forward batted the series winning goal only two minutes into overtime.

(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.

Team Slovakia Wins Gold Medal at WC 5vs5 in Pardubice,Cz Republic--

Team Slovakia Wins Gold Medal at WC 5vs5 in Pardubice,Cz Republic-- Three-peat: Slovaks win wild, back-and-forth final.Canada wins silver

Patrik Svitana’s power-play goal with 1:55 left in regulation time broke a 4-4 tie, as the Slovaks won a gold-medal game in which they blew a three-goal lead, then had to come from behind themselves. Michal Hrivnak of Slovakia and Danick Martel of Canada each had two goals and one assist in the game, which Slovakia won 6-4 to “three-peat” as Men’s Ball Hockey World Champions.

 

Svitana’s goal was the first in a tension-filled third period, but the way the game started, it didn’t seem like the third period would be meaningful at all.

Slovakia struck twice before the game was a minute old, and made it 3-0 by the 7:22 mark. Jaroslav Martiniuk got things started just 19 seconds in, charging through the middle and surprising Tim Barlow with a low shot to the blocker side. Then they went right back to the attack and the Canadians couldn’t clear the zone after Lukas Madera fired a shot off the goalpost, with Hrivnak eventually sliding the puck into the net with Barlow down and out. The third goal was on a slapper by Boris Oravec on the power play, and it looked like the game would become a blowout, with the many Slovaks in attendance going crazy.

Just 34 seconds after Oravec’s goal, Remi Laurencelle got the Canadians on the board, beating Petrik five-hole from the left-wing side. Then they went to the power play shortly afterward and it took them just 14 seconds to strike, with Martel firing a blast over tournament MVP Stanislav Petrik’s shoulder.

Barlow and Petrik, who both posted shutouts in their teams’ semi-final wins, had now combined for five goals against in less than nine minutes.

The game settled down for a time after the wild start, but a pair of Slovak penalties late in the second period opened the door for the Canadians to strike twice and take their first lead of the game. On a 5-on-3, Martel’s second of the game tied it, a one-timer set up perfectly by Victor Azevedo. Then 51 seconds later they scored up one man after some nice tic-tac-toe passing finished off by Marcus Power, which thrilled the few Canadian fans in attendance and left the Slovak majority in stunned silence.

They would have something to cheer about before the period was finished, though. With 1:10 left in the middle frame, some pretty passing led to Milan Rampacek firing a ball into the open side, with Barlow having no chance.

Slovakia went hard for the win in the third period, getting several great chances, but after a shaky start, Barlow was now playing great. However, back on their heels, the Canadians took three penalties in a row trying to contain the Slovak push. They had a two-man advantage for a time, and while still up one man, the ball was worked to Svitana at the point, who’s one-time blast went through everybody, and sent the arena into bedlam.

After an empty-net goal from Hrivnak, the Slovak fans, whose emotions had been toyed with all night long, could finally let loose and start celebrating. After the final horn, they serenaded their now three-time ball hockey champions with the chant: “Zlaty hattrick.”

Reactions

Ian Moores (head coach of Canada): I think we had a great tournament. I’ve got a lot of respect for my players, the coaching staff and the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. We represented the country proudly and well. It’s disappointing to come fall short here today, we were tied coming into the third period, it could have gone either way. Overall I think we had a good tournament but going home without the trophy certainly sucks. I think the host committee did an amazing job here. The host city was great, the Czech Republic overall is a great country. They treated us with hospitality.

Jozef Ďuriš (headcoach Slovakia): We came into final with that, we want win it. We had great beginning, we caught Canada in first minutes off-guard, after them, we took the lead 3:0. But whole match was before us. That was confirmed, Canada turned around toi 4:3. But with enourmous will, enthusiasm and patience we turned the game in the end and gain the third title in the row.
