Starting the Season with Win #1

The hockey season finally started last night and for the ReMax All Stars, it started the way we would have wanted; with our first win.

It was a great line-up The team took a solid 4-1 victory over the Rebels. The game was close for most of the first 2 periods. The All Stars took the lead with the first goal of the season from Marc Allaire, so a quick scramble in front of the Rebels. Next was the ultimate game winner by Alan Benlolo; who was the latest addition to the team, taking the spot of the recently departed Zam. His goal was a a quick shot that hit its mark. The All Stars closed with 2 more quick goals in the 3rd period, including a bang-bang play from Al Murphy to Chris Clarke, where Chris was able to redirect the pass into the net for the 4th and final goal.

The team also looked great defensively; with solid play from the net to the blue line. Ian had a solid game in nets and his only blemish on the almost perfect night was a mad scramble around the net after he was unable to clear it. Ian stopped everything else including a spectacular toe save on a breakaway that would have tied the game at that time, but the Rebels were to be denied and the All Stars started the season on the right foot.

The REMAX Player of the Game: Ian Abramson

Tomorrow night at 9:30 the season begins. The Reamx All Stars most of whom will be back to play again.

As the season moves along I will be updating the blog and keeping things as up to date as possible.

Who knows what this season will bring. Let's look back at some of last year's highlights:

  • Jimmy winning the scoring championship
  • Marc leading in penalties
  • Shep being suspended for 8 games
  • Chris thinking he was leading in points
  • Marshall fighting for the #1 goalie spot
  • Mike leading in game winning goals
  • Andrew winning the Bubble-Boy
  • Al's knee made it through the year
  • Kevin was able to remain naked for the longest time after games beating Marshall's old record.
  • Terry found new ways to score goals.....deflections into our net :)
  • And Pete finally showed what he could do with key playoff goals.
It was quite a year and bring on the competiton...I predict that this team will make the playoffs!!!
