Comments: The day started well for the RC boys with a convincing 9-0 win over the NH Tomahawks. Every part of the game was tilted in our favor, but none as much as the defensive play from close defensemen Mike Falzarano, Ryan Caley, and Connor Rayfield as well as LSM's Tyler Martz and Drew Bourdeau. They helped not only hold the Tomahawks to zero goals, but zero shots on net as well.
The second game of the day matched us up with a Laxachusetts team. In what could have been considered the best game of the tournament, we played them to a 2-2 stale-mate. Much credit must be given to their goalie who kept the score at 1-1 for most of the first half as we controlled most of the action in the early going. Laxachusetts went into the half with a 2-1 lead, but a great feed from middie Foster LeBeouf to a cutting Andrew Gallahue about 10 minutes into the second half knotted things up. That knot was never untied despite multiple opportunities for both teams.
Our third game of the day was one that everyone on the team would like to forget. After such a hotly contested game before, we came out drained emotionally and a very good Connecticut Chargers team took it to us, 2-7. Colin Orr was the lone bright spot in the game winning all but two face-offs in the game.
Going into our last game, the RC's had something to prove. And they did just that. It was as close to a perfect game from all positions as I've seen this group play. While posting a 14-1 win, 10 of the 14 goals were assisted and it all started with beautiful feed from Foster LeBoeuf to a cutting (then diving) Michael Harris. Hunter Tyrrell replicated the play with another feed from Foster about 12 minutes later. The most gratifying thing for me was that every offensive player had at least one point in the contest.
Not a bad way to finish the day.
Overall on the day, I was very happy with the play of this team and I am excited to see them continue to grow and develop.
Players of Note:
Andrew Gallahue (Attack)- Andrew lead the team with seven points on the day (6 goals, 1 assist) coming from great offball movement around the crease.
Foster LeBoeuf (Middie)- Foster ended the day with only 4 (2 goals, 2 assists) points, but he was more often than not the catalyst that started plays on the offensive end of the field.
Colin Orr (Middie)- Colin was the engine of the team on Saturday. He took all but 5 faceoffs all day winning around 65% of them. Coupled with the 1 goal and 1 assist, Colin racked up 16 ground balls on the day.
Dillon Guthro & Kevin Lally (Goalies)- It's almost impossible to separate these two. Both goalies ended the day with 9 saves apiece, splitting every game. Not only did they match each other in total saves, but each game they matched each other save for save,
