Turning up the heat in midsummer scrimmage

For some of the roadsters, Wednesday's midsummer scrimmage was little more than a chance to renew old acquaintances.

For others, it was an opportunity to spark new rivalries for the upcoming season.

For everyone, it was an early indication of their pre-season fitness and desire to win.

And if the pace and competitive zeal of the casual evening encounter are any indication, the upcoming season could be a barn-burner.

Colonel unleashed his patented rapier shot, scoring from the far end of the court at least once, to lead his team to a 15-10 win in the twilight tilt.

He may have approached the game with a laissez-faire feel, but there's no doubt he wanted to win.

"It's good to get a game like this out of the way early," said the veteran forward, still basking in the glow of last spring's Stanley Stick championship sweep.

"You're not saving yourself for anything," said Yak of Wednesday's feisty encounter. "It's everybody's wake-up call."

Lak Attack, who once again donned the pads, said he was impressed with the competitive nature of play.

"It gets you tuned up," said the versatile veteran. "I think you're going to see a very competitive season from the get-go."

Summer scrimmage set

The weather may still be summery, but it's time for roadsters to get their head in the game.

The annual Mid-Summer Scrimmage will be played Wednesday, Aug. 20 at the courts.

The game is a chance for the roadsters to blow the dust off their equipment, reacquaint themselves with the sting of the evil orange plastic ball and, perhaps most importantly, test their off-season fitness.

The game begins at 7 p.m
