New players persevere in downpour

The addition of two new roadsters energized the roadsters on a day that could have been a washout. Literally.

For the fourth week in a row the roadsters were able to play a complete game. Sunday, it was in a driving downpour that flooded the court and soaked everyone’s feet.

“It was a bigger win for us having everyone come out to play,” said Lak Attack, whose team battle back from an early deficit to ride the momentum of five straight goals to a 10-9 victory.

The comeback was largely sparked by one of two new Velma disciples who made their Sunday Morning debut. Their resilience and determination to gut it out despite the deteriorating conditions was motivating to their teammates.

No more so when Lak Attack struggled early on with his glove hand and five-hole, putting his team behind 5-2 at the first break.

“These guys kept the pressure on and that helped me settle in until we got the lead,” said the veteran goaltender.

Scooby said his side knew without a spare player, they had to strike quickly and often to build a lead they could try to ride out to victory.

“We definitely got lucky early,” said the speedster.

But that luck didn’t hold, as Doo and Velma started to buzz the net and find holes around Joker.

“The guys realized they had to step it up,” said Lak Attack.

The deplorable conditions that even forced the roadsters to switch courts midway through the game, may also have had a role in the game’s turnaround.

“Wet conditions like this really change the game,” said Lak Attack.

Despite the loss, Scooby said he was encouraged by the addition of two new players.

“It will definitely take them a few games to adjust,” said Scooby. “When it’s your first game, you may not know where to go for the ball.”

I'll be there tomorrow, and I think we will have yet another full game. Despite Doo letting us down.

Out for tomorrow, and very unlikely for the week after.

Every goal is a good goal ... especially the ones that take you by surprise!
