Snap! The Falcon’s Cold Spell is Over!
Submitted By DSararus on Monday, February 10, 2014
 On Saturday February 8th, the Hanover PeeWee 1 Falcons, in their last game of the season, went “Snap!”


In a “make up” game from January 29th’s snow-blown Teeswater cancelation, the Falcons made space for the TCDMHA Rebels to play at the P&H centre. Was it the practices? Or was it the lay-off time? Perhaps, it was the magic wonder of having so many snow days to make up a second springbreak! Whatever it was PeeWee1 came to play.

Unlike Hanover’s last meeting with TCDMHA, this game was tight. It was Hanover that got the scoring started in the first with linemates #9 and #19 doing some fine tuning as they set-up #16 for the goal. In return the Rebels took full advantage of a glitch in the Falcons’ D and put one in. Hanover rebounded with #19 setting up the puck for his other winger, #9, who made no mistake in hitting the mark. PeeWee 1’s line of #3, #15 and #7 were no slouches either, with #15 leading their rush and #7 keeping up the intensity all game.

In the second period it was TCDMHA that scored first, tying the game at two. #17, #12, #8 and #18 kept the game tight. Even with a string of penalties, they stepped up the PK, keeping the game at 2s. -Nods to #17 and #12 for keeping the puck moving to the opposition’s end, with #3 having a solid shot on net. With only a few minutes remaining in the period the Rebels slipped one in for the go-ahead goal. But this didn’t take the wind out of the Falcons’ wings; #16 returned the favour by setting up #19 for the tying goal. And to finish the second off, it was a déjà vu moment with a #9 to #19 to #16 combo meal deal that once again took Hanover ahead by one “frozen hamburger”*.

(*That’s, the “frozen hamburger”, supposed to allude to a puck…read: “up by one more puck in the net”…Just as an aside: you probably know this, but I have heard that when hockey was first played out on the farm’s back-forty ponds that they used frozen cow pies as pucks? Well, not to gross you out…but that’s where I got the idea of a “frozen hamburger” as… an allusion… to…a…puck… …anyhoo…on with the report!)

Speaking of a meal deal, the third turned out to be quite the buffet.

Spoiler Alert!  Even though there was no scoring in the third, (except for the controversial “smuggler’s no-goal”: one that #9 claims was in and then was snuck back over the line) the period was filled with an array of hockey scenarios and puck handling circumstances. Some sound bites heard were: “You Go, Girlfriend!”, and “Holy Moly, What a Goalie!”

By the end of the period the intensity was at a premium… up by one… short two… empty net… extra player on… only minutes…a minute…seconds…left...  Oh, Snap! Cold Snap, nothing!…This was a Hot Flash! No polar vortex was going to stop the Falcons now!  

Bring on the playoffs!


P.S. Thanks to my understudy for bringing all the news of this exciting game to me as I nursed myself back to health.
