Playoffs: The Rocks 4, Squirrels 3

The Screaming Squirrels failed to defend their C Level Roller Championship, in falling to The Rocks on 8/31. The Squirrels entered the playoffs as the 4th seed, and eliminated the 5th seeded Chupacabras 7-2. Next we faced The Rocks who had soundly defeated us just two weeks prior by the score of 5-0. We came out strong and at halftime led the game 2-0. Unfortunately they put together a string of three goals within just a few minutes, and ended up with the win, 4-3. The Rocks then proceeded to the Championship where they defeated the 3rd seeded 5 Holes, 8-1.

Congratulations to The Rocks for the Championship and to the Roller Squirrels for another winning season. We finished with a record of 13-8-1. Currently the Ice Squirrels are battling for playoff positioning in the HNA Summer League. Fall Ice Hockey will begin towards the end of October.

Squirrels win 2 games at the same time

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!
