The Screaming Squirrels set a team milestone Tuesday, April 27, as both the ice and roller team won at the same time. With both rosters significantly shortened, the roller team dominated in a 4-1 victory over last year’s rival, the 5 Holes. Meanwhile, the ice team completed its undefeated regular season (8-0) with an 8-5 win against the Ice Devils. Special praise goes to Don Marks and Chris Long. Immediately after the roller game ended, they sped around the beltway to play the second half of the ice game. Two games, two different venues, two different surfaces, two different skates, two victories.
Next week we have 3 games within 3 nights. The Roller team plays Tuesday and Thursday, while the Ice team begins the Playoffs on Wednesday. Go Squirrels!
The Screaming Squirrels have finally begun our Ice Season, and have stormed out of the gate with a 3-0 record. Our most recent victory came last night against the Ice Men. Greg Wenograd scored the first ever Hat Trick for the Ice Team, enroute to the 6-1 victory. All statistics on the webpage are updated immediately after each game and should always reflect our current record and scoring leaders. Our next game isn’t until Saturday March 27th at 1:45 PM against the Bulldogs. Hopefully the reasonable time of the game will make it a prime opportunity to get the Squirrels fanclub out there to cheer us on.
The Screaming Squirrels have named Philip Van der Vossen as Captain of the Ice Team for the HNA Beginner Season. Jon Magi has been named the Defensive Alternate Captain, and Ben Sumner has been named the Offensive Alternate Captain. All three will work together to organize the team, and lines for our season, which begins on Tuesday.
Ed Bager remains the Captain of the Roller Team, with Rob Myers and Matt Borlik serving as Alternate Captains. Ed is currently working on organizing our Roster to register for the next Roller season which will begin in mid-April. We look forward to defending our Championship in The Gardens Icehouse Adult Weeknight League.
