Camels 3, Geckos 3 (01-03-2007)

Down 3-1, we battled back to tie the game in the third period.  But neither team was able to score anymore after that, and we skated to a 3-3 tie.  I was held off the scoresheet but did have three good scoring opportunities.  The best was when I picked up a loose puck from the left faceoff circle, skated to my right around a screen and shot at the wide opening to the goalie’s right as he was sliding to his left.  Unfortunately for me, quick reflexes from the opposition’s defenseman resulted in a blocked shot right in front of the goal line. 

Suns 8, Oasis 3

Both teams for the 10:45 game needed players, so I stuck around for another game.  I suited up for the Oasis, and it was a close game early in the first period.  I played well early on and helped our team get a few scoring chances, but none of them amounted to any goals.  Things began to fall apart in the second half of the first period, and it carried into the second period.  After two periods, we trailed 8-3, and that was the final score as we played a scoreless third period.  I was held off the scoresheet once again, although I did skate pretty well for the night.  Sometimes the puck just doesn’t bounce your way.
