Lak thwarts attack

Maybe it was fitting; the first regular season game in which two goalies dressed became a battle between the ballstoppers.

Anxious to get back into action despite being hobbled by a bad back, Lak Attack came off the sidelines to strap on the big leg pads and lead his team to a gutsy 15-12 comeback victory.

The versatile veteran made a number of key saves that allowed his team to blast their way back from a 12-9 deficit with six straight goals. But none was bigger than the pad save that kept the score tied at 12. His mates scored on the transition and never looked back.

"It's one of those heartbreakers," said Bam Bam of the decisive play. "We had the opportunity to score and they turned it around and scored on us."

With his team playing at a manpower disadvantage, Lak Attack came up big time and again to hold down the back end, allowing his mates to forge an early lead.

But Bam Bam and his mates were resolute, battling back to tie and then eventually take the lead. They didn't take control, however, thanks to Lak Attack's goaltending.

"I think we thought the extra man would help us out," said Bam Bam. "But when you're playing against a hot goalie, sometimes the frustration level gets really high. You're trying too hard, you grip the stick too tight. It just wasn't our game today."

Good Game!! Other then some normal soreness, the back is fine, so I will be there next Sun. Whoever has the goalie pads, please put them in a place that allows them to dry for the next game.
