The Fall 2017 Carolina Broomball Season is underway!! And, in typical Carolina Broomball fashion, both games were close from start to finish.
In Game One, Hendrick Lexus was able to find the back of the net three times, while a formidable Heroic Fitness squad did the same just twice. Scoring for Hendrick were: Scott Norton (1G)/Doug Boik (1A); Brad Owens (1G)/Kevin Bennett (1A); and the GW goes to Larry Alkano (1G)/Brett Mathew (1A). For Heroic Fitness, their goals game midway through the second, and tied the game with 10 minutes left. Kevin Hummell (1G)/Greg Krypel (1A) started the scoring with Mondo Normile (1G)/Kevin Hummell(1A) combined for the equalizer. Larry Alkano’s goal was scored with 4 minutes remained, and proved to be the Game Winner for Hendrick Lexus.
The second game was as exciting as a 1-1 tie can get. Shots were fired, posts were hit (so were flags, nets, and a ceiling), saves were made, and a short handed goal was scored. Matt Schmidt picked up a loose ball, and scored on his fast break opportunity while his team was down a man, earning him the first short-handed goal of the season. Steve Hoeflin earned the equalizer and showed why size and strength matter, as he stood strong on the top of the crease, and deflected a Kevin Stezo shot behind otherwise outstanding goaltender Kevin Drucker. The Papa Murphy’s/Carolina Blue contest ended in a 1-1 Tie.
Enjoy the rest of your week, and your weekend, and I will….
