Tidal wave of goals drowns Joker and mates

A tidal wave of offense sent Joker fleeing for shore and his team wallowing in a 15-7 defeat.

The veteran shot stopper gave up seven straight goals to turn a 5-4 lead at the first intermission into an 11-5 deficit that rendered the end result inevitable.

“I’m not sure why we fell apart,” said Joker. “The other team started getting odd man rush after odd man rush; it was crazy.”

The scoring assault started and ended with goals by the Living Legend, who tallied five on the day. But the winners really found their stride when power forward Bam Bam began crashing the corners and driving hard to the net.

“It’s one of those things when you feel like you can score all the time,” said the veteran winger who seems to have finally shaken the persistent cold that dogged him through the season’s early weeks. “I think we did a really good job peppering our shots from every angle. Our passing was crisp and that allowed us to transition quickly.”

Too quick for flat-footed defenders as their commitment to pick up checks waned when the score started piling up.

“It was like a tidal wave,” said Joker. “They just kept coming… and it’s tough to come back when they’re scoring the same kind of goals every rush.”

Bam Bam said his side was emboldened by another solid performance by Kid 2.0, who is still undefeated as he continues his reinvention from offensive dynamo to goaltending juggernaut.

“He’s got all the confidence in the world,” said Bam Bam. “He makes simple saves, he redirects the rebounds and covers them up. He makes it easy on the defence.”

With little to worry about on the backend, Bam Bam and his mates, Colonel and Cleveland, were able to wheel quickly up court. As the goals started to go in, they smelled blood in the water.

“Any time you go on a run like we did, the game’s momentum shifts,” said Bam Bam.

Frustrated by his team’s inability to stem the tide drowning them, Joker stormed angrily off the court after he surrendered the 15th goal.

“It’s tough not to get down on yourself,” said the steamed creaseminder. “But you win as a team and you lose as a team. You’ve just got to bounce back, shake it off.”

Looks like I am out for this week. Familial responsibility beckons. Have a great game; looks like it will be dry.
