In a rink that couldn’t have been cooler than 100 degrees, and no fan (neither a spectator or circular wind-blower), the Screaming Squirrels shook off a slow start and skated to a relatively easy 8-2 victory against a short-benched Silver Spring team.
Silver Spring scored first, and the Squirrels couldn’t get anything going until Joe Eck went on a one-man mission across the rink to get the Squirrels on the board. Casey Carpenter netted the next two, Ben Sumner scored the next two after that, before Silver Spring cut the lead to 5-2. The Squirrels then scored the next three on goals by Matt Ekinci, Carpenter, and Greg Hainer.
The game was interrupted when a puck hit a broom ball in the corner. Charles Warner had two assists and scared two friends who were observing the game by taking a slapshot at the glass.
