(The 2007-08 Game-by-Game Descriptions)
PICTURES ARE ON FRIDAY APRIL 4th. 6:00 for chili and pops
6:45 pictures for the last time around the hooter tree. The mighty
staple of a lot of good things Royal will be cut down and the
Cutman wants to dance naked around a fire with a pitch fork impaled
into the trees _____ area. Be sure to let your friends know, we
will make some phone calls next week.
reports from Kali's game were a little sketchy but it looks like
the Royals won 10-9 in a next goal wins format. I wish someone
would teach Holly how to shoot the puck. As a young Cade Barry
once said 'and wrote on his stick' those who can't - pass.
appears to be a ground swell of support for a 2nd Ever Kali's
Game for Thursday March 20 @ Tipton. Get ahold of Kali @ 953-6178
and if you don't owe money to me you are welcome to play. Scoreboard
says Kali's Royalamaniacs 1 - Royals of today 0.
A REMINDER WE STILL HAVE OUR THURSDAY NIGHT PRACTICES FOR 3 WEEKS.
IT'S SHINNY THE ROYAL WAY. ALL ARE WELCOME AND BRING A FRIEND
OR A SOON TO BE ROYALAMANIAC. HAVE FUN AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU
WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN PICTURE NIGHT IS.
season came to a close 4-7 ending a tight fought series with the
Regals (congrats and good luck). Andrew Halford, Dave Fedechko
and Mike Tayler (2) scored goals in this game with assists to
Cam Breckon, Adam Yurkowski, Brad Williamson, Daryl Bunnell, Joe
Sangha and Pat Lennox. PP 0-6, PK 5-6 shots 30-36. We gave it
our all and came up a little short but we got better in the game
and those that are here next season will learn from it and not
let it happen again. (8) Our write in Royalamaniac was Brenan
Jones. Thanks to our graduating players Dan the goalie Pennock
(4), Joe Sangha (3), Daryl Bunnell (2.5) and Sunday Kory Ebel
(2.5). They are great leaders and teachers of hockey the Royals
way. Our team lived and died by playing Team First Hockey (that's
the only way we teach it), we need all our parts to be as strong
as we can be. This showed all season long, everyone - both on
and off the ice - doing there part in making us successful and
fun to be around. Our new guys contributed everywhere and with
leaders in every stall in our dressing room, it made for a great
7 months of time well spent. Thanks to all the world wide Royalamaniacs
and the support you continually show. I tell the guys about you
all the time and they look at me the way you did the first time
you were in the dressing room when Coach Russ told a story (century
21??). This is far to long of a break before golf season lets
never let it happen again.
more fence post got kicked down with our 5-3 win. A good start
only resulted in a goal for the bad guys then another and another
but that's where it ended. Because Jeff Lesik (2), Dave Fedechko
(penalty shot), Jordan Dezman and Andrew Halford said so with
goals. They were assisted by Mike Tayler (2), Brad Williamson,
Matt Haluschak (2) and Jeff Lesik - oh ya and an extra big effort
to create a short handed penalty shot. PP 2-7 PK 6-6 shots 32-34.
We did a lot of listening and not any talking in the third period
and it showed on the score sheet. (8) Our write in Royalamaniac
was James Cho.
ALL ROYALAMANIACS WE NEED HELP THIS THURSDAY AT HOCKEY SCHOOL
4:00 - 6:15 @ TIPTON. CALL SCOTTY IF YOU CAN BE THERE 908-9082.
good guys came to play with the attitude of a Royal and skated
away with a 5-1 victory. Our goal scorers were Jeff (I wonder
if there will be a backchecking drill named after him tonight)
Lesik (3), Craig Dodds and Brad Williamson. Our defencemen played
a big part in setting up our goals with assists to Pat Lennox,
Matt Haluschak (2), Daryl Bunnell (3), Brad Williamson, Jordan
Dezman, Joe Sangha and Dave Fedechko. PP 2-8, PK 5-6 shots 31-31.
Playing like a Royal and leading like a Royal is how we play hockey.
It was to bad that there were not more witnesses to the singing
that took place after the game. (9) Our write in Royalamaniac
was Pat McNary.
are great things when they work and like our game Friday night
when you lose 1-3. Sorry about the late update but the system
would not let me on until now. Dave Fedechko scored our only goal
from Craig Dodds and Glenn Patry. PP 0-6, PK 5-6 shots 21-38.
The stats look pretty bad but we did a lot of the things we need
to do to win. We need to play with the confidence in our teammates
that will allow ourselves to play to the best of our own ability.
Relax and play Royals hockey stop the unwanted stress and good
things will always happen. (10) Our write in Royalamaniac was
game started good then ended ugly with a 0-8 loss. As you see
there were no goals to report. PP 0-7, PK 4-5 shots 28-37. Nothing
is ever won or lost after the first game of a series and that's
a good thing. (10) Our write in Royalamaniac was Scott Reid.
boy comes through again!. In a tight fought, 4-3 series ending,
double overtime victory Andrew Halford scored our OT game winner
(this one made the game sheet). There were lots of reasons for
us not to play our best game but we didn't think about any of
them and just skated our hearts out and took what we came for.
Kory Ebel started the scoring with Brad Williamson, Kevin Mack
and Andy finishing it at 17:29 of the second overtime period.
The recorded assists (I guess the guy giving them out wasn't paying
attention) went to Matt Haluschak (2) and Dave Fedechko. PP 2-14,
PK 12-14 shots 33-41 and yes we did score shorthanded. The oranges
were great and the grapefruits were unique but the win was sweet.
The Royalamaniacs were once again rewarded for crossing the river,
making the drive up from the town of cows and stopping by before
leaving the country to serve our country. PRACTICE 7:45 SUNDAY
NIGHT CONFEDERATION. (10) Our write in Royalamaniac was Tyler
playoffs started out the way we planned 4-3 in overtime. It's
the win that matters not when we score the winning goal. Speaking
of scoring Jeff Lesik (2), Adam Yurkowski and Mike Tayler with
the winner - assisting (and in one case scoring) Matt Haluschak,
Joe Sangha, Andrew Halford (2), Kory Ebel, Jordan Dezman and Brandon
Bruyer. PP 1-7, PK 4-5 shots 42-28. Our forechecking is our bread
and butter and we ate well last night. The Royalamaniacs were
excited and loud, we loved it. (11) Our write in Royalamaniac
was Rory Shott.
regular season came to a close in a bang 9-2 with a lot of firsts
(some good and some not). The B's were buzzing as Andrew Halford
(2) started the scoring, Cam Breckon (2) continued it, then Jeff
Lesik, Sunday Kory Ebel, Dave Fedechko, Brad Williamson and Rory
Kirkpatrick. Assists to Adam Yurkowski, Matt Haluschak (5), Pat
Lennox (3), Kevin Mack (2), Cam Breckon, Dan Pennock, Andrew Halford,
Barry Jacobs, Dave Fedechko and Kory Ebel. PP 8-14, PK 4-4 shots
47-10. The good firsts included assists, goals and most power
play goals in a game. The bad firsts won't be talked about. The
number is 12 lets get it done.
was to bad the result was 3-4 cause we missed out on that trip
to the Dover. Jeff Lesik, Brad Williamson and Joe Sangha all scored
power play goals that were assisted by Matt Haluschak (3), Kevin
Mack, Pat Lennox and Jeff Lesik. PP 3-8, PK 5-6 shots 37-30. The
game marked the return of #16 and he got on the game sheet with
a late period penalty and into the fans with some sweet moves
but the step up hits may take a little more time - not bad for
the first time out in a year. We will play 60 minutes!!
very workman like effort was rewarded with the two points in a
2-1 victory over the Jets. Jordan Dezman and Joe Sangha popped
in our goals with assists to Brandon Bruyer, Jeff Lesik (2) and
Kevin Mack. PP 0-3, PK 5-6 shots 29-30. A fast paced game that
only lasted 2 hours was seen by another sellout crowd at Confederation,
everyone was able to get to the 10 cent wings earlier than expected.
Some of the crowd got to the game a little later than expected
(part way through the 3rd period) but they did get good parking.
On a side note Mount Jet only erupted one time, we hope it is
not a health problem. It seems like our very own advice columnist's
job will never end, he has been helping out the world's masses
again with his sage and witty advice in 'The Cutman's Corner'.
about the very late update, but the eyes are doing great now.
We lost 1-3 and took a lot of, what looks like on paper, very
bad penalties. Cam Breckon scored with assists to Kevin Mack and
Adam Yurkowski. PP 0-9, PK 10-12 shots 15-33. The reports the
coaches gave me should not be repeated so I won't. Lets just not
let that kind of game happen again.
our sweaters on time we skated to a very cold 5-2 last night.
Our new pucks made it to a game and the first goal with one of
them was Cam Breckon the others were scored by Andrew Halford,
Dave Fedechko, Adam Yurkowski and Craig Dodds. Making the passes
Mitch Thompson (2), Adam Yurkowski, Cam Breckon (2), Brad Williamson,
Craig Dodds, Joe Sangha, Matt Haluschak and Dave Fedechko. PP
0-11, PK 7-9 shots 41-9. Winter, when it's cold and very snowy
sucks but winning makes up for everything so it was a great but
cold night. Lets hope referee guy is better today.
late start out in Leduc became a 3-1 win with a very motivated
and forgetful goalie. Our goal scorers were Kevin Mack, Brandon
Bruyer and Jeff Lesik. They were set up by Jordan Dezman (2),
Pat Lennox, Joe Sangha, Adam Yurkowski and Mitch Thompson. PP
2-5, PK 6-7 shots 18-33. It was the first time, since Sideshow
Bob couldn't find the Sherwood Park Arena, that we warmed up in
practice sweaters. Fortunately we were able to stay focused and
grind out the 2 points which helped us gain another one of our
team goals. There were no reports of speeding tickets in our attempt
to get sweaters to start the game, but with photo radar we may
not know for a while.
another long break from hockey we came back without the touch
you need to play Royals Hockey and we lost 2-5 to the Grove. Pat
Lennox and Jeff Lesik scored our goals with assists to Matt Haluschak
and Adam Yurkowski. PP 1-3, PK 7-8 shots 15-37. Now we are in
the stretch run with lots of hockey and plenty of opportunities
to fine tune our game. We like the look of our team and we know
what can be ahead when we play and think the game the Royal way.
Strap your helmet's on and just bring it. It's still a great thing
that this game is fun.
seems our Cutman's job is never done. He now is giving advice
to wayward travelers.
tough weekend and lets be glad it's over 2-7. Rory Kirkpatrick
and Pat Lennox scored from Brandon Bruyer, Matt Haluschak, Jeff
Lesik and Brad Williamson. PP 1-3, PK 5-5 shots 20-32. Royalamaniacs
Holly and T made it out and made us get home late. We now have
a break from games lets get healthy and fill up our roster.
shorthanded bunch of Royals played their hearts out but also with
hands of Scotty as we lost 1-2. Jeff Lesik scored our goal with
assists to Craig Dodds and Pat Lennox. PP 0-7, PK 8-9 shots 42-31.
It was like the old old old days as we suited up 13 skaters and
got one kicked out. We did the things we need to do to win and
get better but we needed softer hands. Playing quick and smart
was easier to get the update added when I was out of town but
the good guys won 7-2 over the bunch from the north side. The
game had its moments. Our scorers were Andrew Halford (2), Pat
Lennox, Mike Tayler, Brad Williamson, Dave Fedechko and Jordan
Dezman. Our setup guys Glenn Patry, Cam Breckon (2), Andrew Halford,
Adam Yurkowski, Jeff Lesik, Jordan Dezman, Daryl Bunnell (2),
Craig Dodds (2), Mitch Thompson (2) and Brad Williamson. PP 3-10,
PK 7-7 shots 37-34. It was a cold night and we kept the heat on
for 60. We keep playing fast and team 1st hockey and it shows
up in the flow of the game and most importantly the top line.
4-3 win out in the county. The game account was short so this
is what I know. Barry, Andrew (2) and Matt scored with assists
to Brad, Jeff, Mike, Matt, Cam and Brandon. Shots 40-19.
start the new year, with the vibrations crossing the pacific ocean,
3-7. It looked like Daryl, Glenn and Andrew scored. Assists to
Brandon, Rory, Andy, Mike and Jeff - that is about as close as
we could get without the game sheet. PP 2-5, PK 1-2 shots 29-26.
Nice touch by a couple of 20 year old leaders -
to the Royal all stars Pat, Jeff, Glenn, Craig
ANYBODY NEEDS TO GET A HOLD OF COACH JOHN DURING THE BREAK 449-4160
hm. OR email@example.com e-mail. If
you can't make it to practice on the 3rd or the game on the 4th
or 6th let him know so we can plan our attack. See you on the
Christmas season starts, and our present to all the Royalamaniacs
is a 5-1 win in our last game of 2007. With turkeys in the stands
(just waiting to get thrown down the ice) we skated the way we
should and with the help of (an unnamed source) it was a close
game, till the end. Our goal scorers were Kevin Mack, Craig Dodds,
Rory Kirkpatrick, Joe Sangha and Jeff Lesik. The strong passing
skills of Pat Lennox, Matt Haluschak, Mike Tayler, Joe Sangha,
Craig Dodds (2), Cam Breckon, Jeff Lesik and Andrew Halford helped
out the goal scorers. PP 1-6, PK 10-11 shots 25-24. There were
new and old Royalamaniacs in the festive 'Room de Royal', for
a post game pop and chat. Some looked like they may have had a
pop or two before they got downstairs, they added nicely to the
rooms joy in the festive season - well that and we won. The Outlaws
were out in force and as if they didn't know it, more Royalamaniacs
were born. "Nice T Blades" where did that come from.
The Royals wish all Royalamaniacs (world wide - some missed the
game to catch a plane) and even those few who aren't yet a Royalamaniac
(but you know you will be) a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
in a shoot out, it is probably going to be a good night out -
but the call of the Outlaws is way to loud on Saturday to go out
tonight. Being shorthanded on the bench means that everybody gets
to play more minutes, even when they are sick. Maybe all of our
players need to set goals of scoring goals before the game because
Joe Sangha got it started then Andrew Halford and Kevin Mack finished
it. The assists went to Pat Lennox, Matt Haluschak and Jeff Lesik.
PP 1-9, PK 8-8 shots 32-41. Sometimes winning takes a tooth of
two, this was one of those games.
first shut out victory of the season 2-0 over Leduc. There was
no Cutman at the game as he was worn out from his wedding. I guess
we're suppose to say congratulations. Craig Dodds and Jeff Lesik
scored and they were assisted by Brad Williamson, Dave Fedechko
and Cam Breckon. PP 0-2, PK 7-7 shots 39-19. The Christmas party
was epic event we thought it would be. For those who missed it
here's what happened - no I signed the papers of secrecy and am
bound to keep them. To the new couple - WE ARE ALL HAPPY, PROUD
AND WISH ONLY GREAT THINGS FOR THE BOTH OF YOU!
are starting to like these Wednesday games as we skate to a 2-1
win on the north side. Exams made for a dressing room with lots
of empty spots, that were mostly filled by game time. Well that
and the extra bags of equipment that the Royalamaniacs showed
up with. Cam Breckon and Matt Haluschak scored with assists to
Pat Lennox (2), Adam Yurkowski and Cam Breckon. PP 2-7, PK 10-10
shots 38-34. A no show by the Pinto Royalamaniac made for an early
night and with the roads being that bad it may have been for the
best. It was good to hear the thirsty Royalamaniac if full force.
was a much better effort and most importantly result 7-1. The
scoring started with Adam Yurkowski, then Joe Sangha (2), Cam
Breckon, Andrew Halford, Jeff Lesik and Rory Kirkpatrick. With
assists going to Cam Breckon, Mike Tayler, Barry Jacobs, Kevin
Mack, Jeff Lesik (2), Joe Sangha (2), Jordan Dezman (2) and Pat
Lennox. PP 4-12, PK 3-4 shots 40-19. Did anybody notice where
all those broken sticks come from? Nice start by the newest Royal
and first finish by... then there were two. Some times an offside
is bigger than just a whistle - but it can be kind of funny.
sucks and we have to start hating it more and harder, 3-5 on a
cold night in the Fort. Thanks to all those brave Royalamaniacs
who made the drive and went home more disappointed than some of
the players. Freshly back from that trip down south, to help the
poor and suffering people of Cuba, Kevin Mack scored 2 goals with
Cam Breckon getting the other. They were assisted by, also freshly
back Andrew Halford, Dave Fedechko (sorry Daryl), Jeff Lesik (2)
and Mitch Thompson. PP 3-17, PK 6-6 shots 35-26. It was good to
see a full lineup, well almost. It was very good to see that we
never quit. But it was bad to see our start to the game and the
kind of mistakes that we made to give them their goals. It was
also disappointing that the chirping that came across the glass
didn't motivate us to play harder and win.
was a sleepy bunch of Royals who took the ice and lost 0-5. We
all need to give our heads a shake - is the Cuba thing over? Scoring
for the Royal .... PP 0-6, PK 5-6 shots 27-32. A casino is just
what the doctor ordered but it would have been better if our players
were asked to work Tuesday night not Monday night when we have
a practice. Oh well the money will be good when it comes in and
the guys that make the skate will be that much better for it.
tough hard hitting game without the result we played for 2-4 for
the bad guys. We made a strong comeback but had to make sure that
when we score we make sure all the important people are in the
proper position to make the call and that tackling is not a way
to get the goalie to drop the puck. Jeff Lesik and Pat Lennox
scored from Daryl Bunnell, Joe Sangha, Matt Haluschak and Mike
Tayler. PP 1-9, PK 6-7 shots 29-30. We showed up lots and footsteps
were being heard all over the ice. Just another step forward but
without the two points.
a cold night we got hot and won 16-3. We had lots of highlights
but lets just go with a couple - 2 penalty shot saves, 4 goal
game, 5 assist game but all that matters is we got 2 points. PP
3-6, PK 5-5 shots 54-17. Nuf said.
a 2-1 score in our favour. When you are coaching 3 games on Grey
Cup Sunday they all run together so this update is pretty weak.
Jeff Lesik and Pat Lennox scored from Kevin Mack, Adam Yurkowski
and Matt Haluschak. PP 0-10, PK 5-5 shots (a guess because once
again their time keeper didn't finish his job) 28-34. A strong
close to the game ensured the win.
like I figured something out and our site is up and running again.
Two games two losses 1-2, to Spruce Grove then to Wetaskiwin.
Brad Williamson scored from Kevin Mack and Pat Lennox on Friday.
Then Mike Tayler from Mitch Thompson and Dave Fedechko on Sunday.
We need to win and nothing we write on here will change that one
important fact, just WIN.
bloody coup almost took place but a steady hand helped steer the
good ship Royal home with a 6-5 win. Craig Dodds started the scoring
then Joe Sangha (2), Andrew Halford and Jeff Lesik (2) rounded
it out. They were assisted by Glenn Patry, Mitch Thompson, Jordan
Dezman, Dave Fedechko, Pat Lennox (2), Jeff Lesik (2), Mike Tayler,
Daryl Bunnell and Matt Haluschak (2). PP 2-5, PK 5-9 shots 26-32.
That's allot of goals to give away on the power play. Still we
did improve in some areas and got the TWO points that we came
trip out to Stony Plain ended with the good guys skating away
with a 6-3 victory. As a side note there was no trip to the old
bar, so the best post game story that ever happened, was not repeated.
We got our goals from Jeff Lesik (2), Pat Lennox, Adam Yurkowski,
Glenn Patry and Brandon Bruyer. They were assisted by Brandon
Bruyer, Mike Tayler (2), Matt Haluschak, Cam Breckon, Andrew Halford,
Barry Jacobs, Brad Williamson, Jeff Lesik and Glenn Patry. PP
2-8, PK 6-8 shots 43-30. We scored 2 faceoff goal for the first
time this season and Glenn got his first as a Royal - both Adam
and Pat have scored but there names never made it on the scoresheet
so that was another first. No Cutman but he called in from the
birthday party and said he was tired from celebrating the 40th
birthday of 'you know who'. Do you think she will look any different
up after every passed puck makes winning that much easier, 5-1
over the north side team. Goal scoring is fun and Mike Tayler,
Craig Dodds, Jordan Dezman, Barry Jacobs and Kevin Mack had fun.
Adam Yurkowski (2), Pat Lennox (2), Kevin Mack, Joe Sangha, Brandon
Bruyer, Daryl Bunnell (2) and Brad Williamson set up all the fun.
PP 3-12, PK 4-5 shots 33-21. Royalamaniacs from all over the world
attended the game - some that are going and some that just came
back - but it was great to see them all. Those old high school
pictures always come back to prove how cool you really were -
just not in one to not be named Royals case. Congrats to everyone
who participated in the find the 50/50 ticket challenge we hope
you have better luck next time. We really liked the result of
the battle of the Sangha brothers especially the way #20 played.
are learning but mistakes like the ones we made in the Park to
lose 3-7 are hard to take. Jeff Lesik (2) and Kevin Mack scored
with Brad Williamson, Craig Dodds, Mitch Thompson, Barry Jacobs
and Daryl Bunnell getting the assists. PP 0-10, PK 5-8 shots 38-31.
Looks like our PP wasn't very good for anything but shots - maybe
we need to practice our 5 on 3.
TUESDAY 10:45 TIPTON - YES I KNOW THERE IS AN OILER GAME, BUT
PRACTICE IS LATE ENOUGH TO GET TO BOTH! Bring your registration
in overtime (and getting a point) is like kissing your sister
and finding out it was really your brother - 5-6. Our goal scorers
were Jordan Dezman, Jeff Lesik, Andrew Halford (2) and Mike Tayler.
Our passers - Jordan Dezman, Daryl Bunnell, Cam Breckon, Jeff
Lesik and Matt Haluschak. PP 1-6, PK 7-9 shots 23-42. We have
to blow a team up when we chase their starting goalie.....
fishing trip got called off (due to Outlaws) but the two points
came home 6-1. Jeff Lesik scored 3 goals and Mike Tayler, Brandon
Bruyer, Cam Breckon got the rest. They were all assisted by Daryl
Bunnell (2), Mike Taylor, Jeff Lesik, Matt Haluschak, Adam Yurkowski
and Jordan Dezman. PP 4-11, PK 4-4 shots 43-25. The faster we
took the tempo of the game the more power plays we got and the
more goals we scored. That's the way it should be. I don't know
why refs don't like getting called names that shouldn't be said
in front of little kids (I guess that's why Davy stayed at home).
It's to bad for those Morinville atom players, that they must
listen to that kind of language. To Bob and all those who made
it to the fishing hole I hope you didn't get skunked. Just so
all the out of town Royalamaniacs know, the score sheet was wrong
- Pat Lennox did score the 1st goal in his Royal's career (with
that new non wood stick) and Jeff didn't get a hattrick. There
was so much late ammunition but it will go unsaid.
time is a great way to win but a tough way to lose. We did the
tough way 2-3 in OT. When you shoot the puck with a smile on your
face good things happen. Brandon Bruyer and Kevin Mack scored
with assists going to Daryl Bunnell, Mike Tayler, Jeff Lesik and
Matt Haluschak. PP 2-10, PK 9-11 shots 21-29. The way the game
went it was hard to believe the power plays were not even when
the game ended - if you get my drift. We must soften up our hands
with some big ones in mind and everything is going to be great.
again the Royal find a way to win a game, 3-1 over the Sabers.
Playing every second hard pays off. Even when it doesn't add up
on the scoreboard other than the 2 points that we came to get.
Andrew Halford, Joe Sangha and Jeff Lesik scored and they were
assisted by Mitch Thompson, Adam Yurkowski and Dave Fedechko.
PP 1-7, PK 4-4 shots 47-25. Our Cutman and our 50/50 winners were
all out, showing their support and we loved it. The post game
pops were very tame and no stories.
skate to a win over our friends from St. Albert 4-2, in the quickest
game we have played in since George was refereeing our league.
Dave Fedechko and Matt Haluschak each scored 2 goals that were
assisted by Brad Williamson, Pat Lennox, Jordan Dezman, Barry
Jacobs and Kevin Mack. PP 0-6, PK 6-6 shots 30-29. In other news
our Cutman made it out of surgery with flying colours and the
only thing that appears to slow him down is sewing up shoulder
pads. Lets hope driving to Jasper isn't one of those tiring things.
Oh ya, another Royalamaniac won the 50/50 at the Eskimos game.
The endzone view of the game was great and those loud funny races
that were going on in the tents kept a lot of people entertained
(even more entertaining that the game). It's to bad that one of
the players had an allergic reaction to some of the food he ate,
they should be more careful what they serve at these games.
came up with a late shorthanded goal to get the win 6-5 in a Cutman
less night out in Wetaskiwin. The heart of our champ is on the
mend and we showed some on the ice after letting the Icemen back
in the game. Brad Williamson started our scoring and Mike Tayler
(3), Dave Fedechko, Jordan Dezman finished it. The goals were
assisted by Craig Dodds, Mitch Thompson, Pat Lennox (2), Jeff
Lesik(2), Joe Sangha, Daryl Bunnell and Brandon Bruyer. PP 0-9,
PK 9-10 shots 25-24. The Royals go see the Eskimos today and the
end zone will never be the same. One day under the knife with
his heart in some doctors hand and the next walking out the front
door of the hospital ready to put on his boxing card. Lets be
glad that he is on our side.
Cutman - GET BETTER SOON - REAL SOON!!! U of A Hospital 5G
TONIGHT TUESDAY OCTOBER 9 - 10:30 @ MICHEAL CAMERON ARENA
about the late update and this time I've been good just busy.
Royals win 6-3 in a glass breaking game at the short glassed Confederation
Arena. Mike Tayler, Andrew Halford, Craig Dodds???, Jordan Dezman,
Matt Haluschak and Cam Breckon (you know when they announce the
wrong player scoring a goal you have to go let our timekeeper
know) scored our goals sort of. The setup men were Jeff Lesik
(2), Matt Haluschak, Adam Yurkowski, Cam Breckon, Kevin Mack (2),
Brad Williamson, Dave Fedechko, Joe Sangha and Daryl Bunnell.
PP 3-11, PK 12-13 shots 41-22. The games are getting more fun
and we are getting harder to play against - these are good things.
got faster and most importantly we got 2 points 4-2 out in Leduc.
The game is speeding up on the ice and slowing down in our heads.
That is a great combination to have and is the next step to getting
to our goals. Our goal scorers were Jordan Dezman, Jeff Lesik,
Matt Haluschak and Craig Dodds with assists going to Matt Haluschak,
Joe Sangha, Brandon Bruyer, Pat Lennox, Mike Tayler, Brad Williamson
and Dave Fedechko. PP 3-17, PK 9-11 shots 35-24. There were a
lot of penalties called but we reacted the right way and didn't
get any cheap ones. That's just another sign of a team coming
gave a much better effort with everything we like to see but the
win, we lose 4-5. Playing hard for every second comes to teams
that strive for consistency. We are getting close and it's fun
to see our growth. Matt Haluschak, Joe Sangha (2) and Jeff Lesik
were our goal scorers. The set up men were Mike Tayler, Pat Lennox
(2), Jordan Dezman, Dave Fedechko, Matt Haluschak (2) and Brandon
Bruyer. PP 2-14, PK 10-13 shots 37-28. Hard to believe that we
didn't shoot enough but we didn't. Royalamaniac Buzzy was in the
stands but didn't win the 50/50.
season started out great with a PP goal 2 minutes into the first
but ended very bad with a 2-6 loss out in Beaumont. We could not
get rid of our nervous jitters soon enough to let our skill and
tenacity come out. Mike Tayler and Kevin Mack scored our goals
with assists to Daryl Bunnell, Brad Williamson and Craig Dodds.
PP 2-10, PK 6-6 and shots 20-34. Tough break on those new jerseys.
We will be more organized and comfortable come Sunday.
about the out dated looking site but things will improve shortly.
Those Kentucky horse buying expeditions have cut into the available
time to archive last seasons pages and I don't know how to do
it. ('I don't know how to do it' is never an excuse Scotty!!!')
games that don't count for points came to an end in a 7-8 loss
to Sherwood Park. We should win any game that we score 7, some
guys looked good some guys didn't and some guys got nicked. Our
Team picture got clearer and we should make a few more decisions
this week. Some old guy was a couple under par and took home the
coveted Orca shirt for the win in the golf. Then again some guys
may have had way to much fun and had it effect their play last
night. All in all it was a good weekend and we got better. The
fun begins for real on Friday and we can't wait.
Kali would say WINNING is good 1-0 for the good guys. The bus
treated us very well and we skated to that hard working victory
that we came for. The Killer Bees as they may be called came up
big and potted the game winner late in the third period (lets
hope they make the team). As we always say 'if they score 0 we
win' and once again it was true. Next up golf 1:30 at Kinsmen
2 was close all the way and we came up short 3-4 on the scoreboard.
Our game speed picked up for a while and we need to keep getting
faster. If we didn't give the puck up every now and again to set
them up for a breakaway things would be better. It was another
good step towards our goals.
17 Our 1st game of the season was only disappointing
because we could only score 1 goal in 13 shooters. Final score
4-5 for the bad guys. Our pace of play got faster and we improved
as the game went along. We had a nice comeback to tie the game
up with 33 seconds to go. It was good to see some of the new guys
going harder as well as our old guys leading on the ice and in
the stands. We had extra blue Halls at the game but no Russ. I've
been looking forward to tonight's game since I left the rink last
night lets get faster.
